“Miss DYC” Flips in Gold Cup Final


DETROIT, July 17, 2005 – The Detroit Yacht Club’s U-2 unlimited hydroplane “Miss DYC” flipped going into the first turn during the Chrysler Jeep Superstores Detroit APBA Gold Cup final race.

“Miss DYC” driver J. Michael Kelly had a good position in lane one, but went high off the Roostertail of “Miss E-lam.” The boat launched vertically into the air and landed upside down. Kelly exited the boat through the escape hatch on the hull under his own power. Early reports indicate that he is okay.

The race was delayed for more than an hour as “Miss DYC” was removed from the course. When the race was restarted, the number of competitors was reduced from six to three. The Gold Cup winner was the U-13 “Miss Al Deeby Dodge.”

“Miss DYC” was the winner of the 2004 Gold Cup and is sponsored by the Detroit Yacht Club through individual member and sponsor contributions. Title sponsor is Dick Scott Automotive Group. Information about membership in the DYC and how to become a sponsor is available at Detroit Yacht Club (313) 824-1200.
