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.
