Next year's racing calendar has been published! Thanks to the SCYYRA Board for their efforts in organizing the calendar.
Clinic Date: December 2-3, 2017 at the United States Sailing Center - Long Beach
Applications Due: November 17, 2017
Advanced Racing sailors in Southern California are invited to apply. Sailors must be in the 8th grade or higher, and have significant racing experience. This includes participants in the SCYYRA Shadden, Ullman, Frost, Perry Series’, and other SoCal High School aged sailors that have been involved in serious C420, CFJ, Laser or Laser Radial programs.
Members of the 2018 SCYYRA Advanced Racing Team are required to attend the clinic. Please complete the application online by November 17, 2017. We will publish the list of accepted sailors on the SCYYRA Website by or before Wednesday evening November 22, 2017.
Congratulations to the following sailors selected for the 2018 SCYYRA Advanced Racing Team. Sailors were chosen based on regatta results between September 1st and August 31st, as well as age, ability, sportsmanship and geographic location. Please note, team members are required to attend the Advanced Racing Clinic.
Coming up on October 21-22 is the BCYC Corinthian Cup! The Corinthian Cup Regatta is unique in that sailors are competing for the Team High-Point Perpetual Trophy in addition to individual low point awards within each class.
How it works: the Team High-Point combines participation as well as performance to determine an overall winning yacht club. Each registered Newport-area sailor receives 1 point toward their yacht club team score. Travel teams receive 5 points per registered sailor. Top 5 finishers in each class are awarded points based on their final ranking (1st: 10 points, 2nd: 8 points, 3rd: 6 points, 4th: 4 points, 5th: 2 points) in addition to their participation points.
The first event of the Hamlin Series is the Halloween Regatta, October 28 at ABYC. Because this is a one day regatta the Race Committee has generously offered to continue running races after the other fleets are done - especially if the conditions are good. We plan to have a clinic Sunday, but we need to know if you are interested so we can plan accordingly. Contact me at email@example.com for more details.
The application for the 2018 SCYYRA Team is now live. We have extended the due date for application submission, to midnight on October 22, 2017. The 2018 SCYYRA Team will be announced on November 4th at the SCYYRA board meeting.
Regatta Toolbox is proud to partner with SCYYRA for the 2017 and 2018 sailing season to help deliver a consistent regatta experience for organizers, parents, and fans. Launched in 2015 by a former SCYYRA sailor, Regatta Toolbox is helping to streamline the registration process, specifically when entering any SCYYRA Series. This new platform allows anyone to “double register” at the time of entry for both the standalone event, as well as the Series, making it easier to keep Series scores up to date. Regatta Toolbox also allows parents to register multiple children for a single event under one account, streamlining the registration process. Event entries can be managed all through a single dashboard so updating sail numbers, crew name, or emergency information has never been easier. Regatta Toolbox has also worked with SCYYRA to help build a membership database, which you might be asked to join at specific events. If you haven’t signed up for a free SCYYRA membership, be sure to do so today!
