Friday Frolic – April 21

A message from Frolic Meister Phil Ramser:

The date for our April FRIDAY FROLIC is April 21. We will start the races from the Dick Sweet at 2pm.   The Dick Sweet will  be anchored north of the Newport  Harbor Yacht Club. This  is our only FROLIC scheduled for the month of April. Our superb weather is in full bloom, plan to be on the starting line and after the races join the “after party” on the upper deck of  Marina for a beer or a glass of wine.

Seaya, Phil Ramser

Fleet 1 Boat Weighing Day

On Saturday, March 11th, our Fleet 1 Measurer – Richard Loufek – will be conducting boat weighings for boats that do not currently have a weight certificate, or for boats that have made changes and need to re-certify their weight certificate.

 

All Fleet 1 Boats must have a weight certificate on file to qualify to race in Fleet races.

 

Refer to the Class Bylaws for exact weight requirements and procedures for adding weight if necessary, specifically, sections III.C.2, and III.D.2.

 

Contact Richard Loufek directly at happyisles@mac.com or rloufek@insightinvestments.com to set up a time for a weighing.

H20 Spring Regatta After-Race Recap on the Docs

Immediately after racing on Saturday, NHYC will be hosting a race debriefing / recap at the club facilities (yeah, the new one). Brian Bissel will host a “White Board” talk with the day’s winners and will discuss their strategies, what worked and what didn’t. Learn what you did right, or wrong, or should have done. NHYC will be providing some after-race chili or snacks. Come to NHYC immediately after the last race on Saturday to join this informative and educational event.

Change to Division C Promotion Rules and B Re-Qualification Rules

Note to all Fleet 1 competitors planning on participating in the NHYC Spring Regatta this weekend:

For this regatta, 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 and Re-Qualification in 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 Re-Qualification finish places for B Division only are:  5 boats=1st place; 6 boats=1st and 2nd; 7-8 boats=1st through 3rd; 9-11 boats=1st through 4th; 12+ boats=1st through 5th.

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.

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.
