There is no Keelboat racing this weekend as it is designated an Off The Beach day, specifically Day 2 of the OTB Winter Series for the Lasers, Optimists, 29ers, Open Skiffs, Wasps and Moths. Boats not yet entered for the Winter Series still have time. Click here for more information.
The next round of The Good Grocer Frostbite Series is scheduled for Sunday 04 July 2021.
As a reminder, all Equipment Audit Forms submitted by skippers for the previous season will expire by 30 June 2021. But don’t panic! Skippers have until their first race of the new season beginning with SoPYC Opening Day, Sunday 03 October 2021 to submit a new form. Just to be clear that is 4 months to get this done. This is applicable for Keelboats and Off The Beach Boats. Those skippers who submitted via Yacht Safe can (from 1st July) log into Yacht Safe, and submit a new form electronically. Your previous audit form will be still sitting there for reference. Further information is available towards the bottom of this bulletin.
Don’t forget each Monday evening from 1800 to 1900, there is an open invitation for all interested parties to participate in the Racing Rules workshop sessions run by our Rules Chairperson, Christina Heydon. Normally held in the upstairs Wardroom.
Attention Midweek sailors: Just as a general bit of advice, following the start and when the RPYC boats are charging down towards Foam Buoy for the first time, do try to keep well clear of that area otherwise your pleasant afternoon sail could turn into a real demolition derby. We want to avoid ugly scenes like this, so after rounding Sampson Spit, pass Foam Buoy (55) to starboard and stay safe.
Alright, that’s it. Let’s roll! Hey, let’s be careful out there.
