Register now for “Rules Around the Race Course” – Sunday June 9, 1:00 – 5:00, LIYC

I will be going to print with the materials for the “Rules Around the Race Course” seminar on Friday. If you are planning to attend this coming Sunday afternoon at LIYC, registering before Friday will guarantee you a book. While I am always prepared for some walk-ins, having an accurate headcount in advance is extremely helpful.

We hope to see you there!

Let’s turn out for the Leukemia Cup!

The Leukemia Cup is this Sunday, June 2, at BCYC. The registration fee is higher than normal because this is a charity event, but it ALL goes to the Leukemia Society! This is a great way for Harbor 20 Fleet 1 to do what we do best while supporting such an important cause. It would be wonderful to see a record turnout on the water, and at the awards ceremony. Hope to see you there!

Where to buy the “Racing Rules of Sailing”

If you are planning on attending the “Rules Around the Race Course” clinic coming up on June 9, you will have the best experience if you bring your own copy of the rule book. It can be hard to find in brick-and-mortar stores, so it is easiest to order it online from the source – US SAILING.

 

If you are a member of US SAILING, login before ordering to get a 25% discount.

To order, click here, or go to ussailing.org and then SHOP > RACING > RACING RULES

To allow for shipping time, it would be best to order it sooner, rather than later.

Next Friday Frolic – May 17

Posted on behalf of Frolic Meister Phil Ramser:

Our next FRIDAY FROLIC is scheduled for Friday May 17th. This is the last of the Spring series. We will begin the fall season in September.

Enjoy the summer and take advantage of our Harbor 20 schedule, racing every week day evening all summer long!

On May 17, the Race Committee will be anchored in the anchorage north of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club. The starting sequence for the first race will begin at 1400hrs. Come and enjoy a splendid day on the water. Warm weather, gentle breezes and an empty bay. Then join us afterwards for beverages in the Pirates Den. A Perfect Friday Afternoon!!

Please also note that Peter Haynes will be presenting his half-day “Rules Around the Race Course” interactive clinic on Sunday, June 9, 1-5 PM at LIYC. It is a great opportunity to catch up and understand the rules as codified in the 2017-2020 edition. Cost will be $45.00. Watch for an update as to when online registration will be open…

Seaya on the starting line,

Phil Ramser

FRIDAY FROLICKING NEWS

Posted on behalf of Frolic Meister Phil Ramser:

We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of sailing on April 12. Wind out of the West at 12 to 15 knots, a sunny warm day and seven boats to cross the starting line.

We had three lengthy races and then the Race Committee called it a day.

We adjourned to the Pirates Den where Bob Yates bought the first round. Along with great pictures Larry Parker filmed it was a great day.

Newport at its best!

Our next Friday Frolick is scheduled for April 26, be there!!

Seaya, Phil Ramser

The Baldwin Cup is underway!

The Baldwin Cup is underway at Newport Harbor Yacht Club. Today is day two of the three day event. Click here for the event website.  Also, search for “Baldwin Cup 2019” on youtube.com where is supposed to be livestreaming. Or, go to twitter to follow the action “baldwincup”.

Next Friday Frolic – March 22

Posted on behalf of Frolic Meister Phil Ramser:

The most recent FRIDAY FROLIC was cancelled due to some very cold and windy conditions. The Women on the Water races scheduled for 11 am were also cancelled due to “storm warnings” being announced.

After lunch conditions  had not improved with wind out of the West at 15 knots gusting to 17 knots. So, we displayed the Race Abandoned signal on the mast of the committee boat and on the mast at NHYC. At 2pm we packed up and left.

 Our next Friday Frolic is scheduled for March 22 and we are hopeful we will enjoy the usual sunny, warm and gentle breezes we are accustomed too.

 So, mark your calendars and plan to join the Friday Frolic at 2pm on March 22!

 Seaya on the water,

Phil
