Each year the club holds a race in memory of one of its founding members, Bob McVey. A historical perspective of Bob McVey is available on YouTube
HdGYC also has a history of Frostbite Laser racing.
Frostbite racing has been held with A “20/20” rule – no racing if the air temperature is below 20 degrees F, or the wind above 20 knots. (Burrr!) The fleet is accompanied by Jim A. in his Whaler power boat, which is used as both the RC signal boat and a recovery boat, if needed. Participants have included Pat P., Tom C., Jeff S., Mohamed H., Mark H., Carl R. and Tony I. Many of these happy sailors are in the picture
