Class Association ByLaws Amended

On August 19, 2015, the Harbor 20 Class Association Board approved changes to the ByLaws that intend to protect the one-design class from variances in manufacturing and boat weight. The new Bylaws can be found on the website under the About the Class menu, under Organization, or click here.  A downloadable PDF can be accessed here.

The relevant changes are in sections III.D.1 and III.D.2.

These new rules will be in effect for the upcoming Class Races:  BCYC Harbor 20 Tune up; NHYC Regatta, and the Class and Fleet 1 Championships on October 3rd & 4th. The waterline templates may be used at random during all upcoming events to verify compliance with new class minimum weight rules.

If you feel your boat may be out of compliance, please contact the Class or Fleet 1 Measurers:  Warren Duncan or Michael Volk.

Earl Corkett Regatta Observations

Notice anything about the composition of our A and B Class winners this past weekend at the Corkett Regatta?
The top three were all husband and wife teams in class A and Class B…Pretty amazing!

I worried the competition would be hampered by a further division of our fleet into three divisions. Its been great so far and I suspect the only problem is we are moving people out of C class to B, and we might deplete the C division before anyone moves back down from B.

Baldwin Cup is approaching and it a great event for our class. Come on down to NHYC and watch the racing, or help the overworked pit crew!
