First Race: Opening Day Regatta, April 14

Classic Fleet - 2013 Racing Schedule | 2013 Registration

For the last two years SYC has been developing a class whereby competitive minded sailors who are not interested in the shorter, sometimes more frantic, windward leeward race course can compete in longer triangle races.  

Classic Fleet” refers to the race course and not the type of boat.  All non-sport boats, as defined by the GYA, with a PHRF rating are welcome and participants do not have to be members of SYC.  To encourage more modern cruising boats to join in the fun, a Rule change for 2013 was enacted: RRS 52 “Manual Power” is modified to allow the use of winches operated by using stored power.  

We have worked out a venue that tracks the PHRF race schedule. PHRF sails two races that aggregate to about 8-10 miles. The race committee will start the Classic Course after the first PHRF start and send us on a separate course that approximates the aggregate distance of their two races. 

A boat may be registered for spinnaker or non-spinnaker classes.  Depending on how many boats register, we hope to further break down the two classes into  and B fleets to make it more competitive for all.  Registration starts now and includes 8 races (4 Spring and 4 Fall) Cost is $50.00 per year.  If you are a CSA member, they will allocate $25.00 of your dues to the Classic Fleet so you send in only $25.00 to SYC.  Make out checks to SYC Classic Fleet.
