Change to Division C to B Promotion Rules

Note to all Fleet 1 competitors planning on participating in the 2017 SCYA Midwinter Regatta this weekend:

For this regatta only, the Fleet 1 Board of Directors have altered the APPENDIX A: Rules for Maintaining Fleet Race Divisions as it applies to promotion from C Division to B Division.  The change is as follows:

If at least ten (10) boats start in the C Division, then both the 1st and 2nd place winners of the regatta in C Division will automatically be promoted to the B Division. If less than 10 boats start in the C Division, the Rule will not change as currently written.

The purpose of this temporary rule change is to try to balance the number of qualified boats in the A, B and C Divisions. Currently there is a significant un-balance.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see Dave Perry explain the Racing Rules

If you are serious about “Understanding the Racing Rules of Sailing”, you either

  1. Have Dave Perry’s books
  2. Need Dave Perry’s books

And, given the opportunity, you should not miss the opportunity to see Dave in person!

While NorthU has a number of instructors, on “rules change” years, Dave tours the country with the NorthU Rules+Tactics seminar, and he kicks off the tour at LIYC next Saturday, January 28, for his only appearance in the greater Los Angeles area this winter or spring.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see the guy who “wrote the book”. If you have seen Dave before, you know what a great experience it is. If you have not, you will!

Member price is for members US Sailing, or members of the event host Lido Isle Yacht Club.

Be Rules Smart in 2017!

The Racing Rules of Sailing change every four years in cadence with the Olympics, and the rules for 2017-2020 took effect on January first. Don’t handicap yourself with an incomplete or incorrect knowledge of the rules!  A unique opportunity exists this month to really learn the rules. On January 14, I will be presenting my “Understanding the Racing Rules of Sailing Seminar” at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club. And on January 28, Dave Perry will be hosting a North U. Rules and Tactics Seminar at Lido Isle Yacht Club. People have asked if the material which Dave and I will cover will be the same. While the material is the same, my approach to teaching assumes no prior knowledge, builds from one concept to the next, and covers all the DEFINITIONS necessary to understand all the rules for “WHEN BOATS MEET”. So,  there is a very good chance that if you attend my presentation two weeks before Dave’s, you will likely understand everything he says. Why not start off 2017 with  a better working knowledge of the rules than ever! Skippers, why not send your crews, because two heads are better than one!
