All yachts with a valid NCPHRF rating. There should be a NCPHRF certificate for either your boat or an identical sister ship which will be accepted. Boats may be reassigned to alternate divisions after registration in order to balance the divisions and may be combined if there are too few for a division. A minimum of 3 boats will be required for a division. In the event there are only enough boats for one division it will be raced non spinnaker or re-sailed at a later date.
Check the CPYC calendar for Skipper’s meeting time. Skipper’s meetings will usually be at 11:00 am for a 12:30 pm start. Check-in at Committee Boat is acceptable. Committee Boat will monitor VHF Ch 71 throughout the race. Communication is encouraged. Retirement from the race without finishing requires RC notification.
SCORING & AWARDS:
Scoring will be calculated Time on Time, except for pursuit races. CPYC will provide division awards for boats winning and placing in the individual races. Perpetual Trophies remain the property of CPYC with winners’ names engraved on the trophy. An awards dinner will be held at the end of the season – exact date and time to be determined at a later date.
$125 for all 11 races
$15 for an individual race
Checks should be made payable to Coyote Point Yacht Club.
POST RACE FESTIVITIES:
After the race, come relax with your fellow sailors at the CPYC clubhouse and bar!
