As always, we all have to compromise when it comes to scheduling. Not every schedule will ever work 100% for all of us. With much discussion, the following schedule has been set to meet the needs of the fleets at RCYC.
In order to maximize participation among all the fleets, the decision has been made to alternate Saturdays between the IC24’s and Melges 24’s. Through surveys and discussions, the general consensus was that there would be greater participation if we split the 2 fleets and raced on a less frequent basis. However, if your fleet is not scheduled for races that week, you are encouraged to help run races or race with PHRF.
So far, we have had good participation with race committee volunteers. Please sign up at signup.rcyc.org

END OF SPRING SCHEDULE
SUMMER SCHEDULE: The Summer series will be distance racing every Saturday night for keel boats and every Sunday at 2pm for dinghies. The Saturday distance race will be an Australian pursuit start that will start/finish off the club break wall. As always, I encourage the fleets to race as much as possible. If your fleet would like to conduct impromptu racing outside of the schedule, you are welcome to do so. However, please check with VC of Race and VC of Education so that there is not a conflict with use of equipment.
Ryan Glaze, VC of Race
