To all GSYC sailboat owners, crew, and GSYC friends with sailboats:
This Saturday, June 11th at 11 am, we will have the fifth of the season stress-free sailboat regatta at the GSYC. The winds will be a perfect 8 knots out of the SW. Anyone wanting to join on the committee boat contact me by email, text, or otherwise. This should be fun. Email me if you are interested in crewing or skippering and give me the class boat including the length, name, and skipper. I am sending this email to our veteran and newly trained sailors and other club members who may have an interest. Email me if you think you can make it. As a reminder, all sailors should wear life jackets. My email is [email protected] or cell is 973-219-7840.
All class boats are welcome. I will place 3 buoys in the cove in front of the GSYC in a triangular course. Each team or solo (any sailboat will do including sailfish and Laser size boats are welcome) will time themselves from start to finish. There will be two short races back to back. All boats should start at the sound of the horn of the committee boat at 11 am. The first race will be in a clockwise course starting with the buoy in front of the club. The second race will start at 11:30 am and will be counterclockwise. Start your timer when you tap or come within 5’ of the first buoy and end when you tap or come within 5’ of the last buoy. I will handicap the times so everyone has a shot at winning. The race is in this format because it is designed to be stress-free and fun. We will have a race committee boat at the start. Email me your scores at the end and I will publish the times.
