Fawcett/EYC Beer Can Season Starts May 8

The first gun for the 2015 Fawcett/EYC Friday Night Beer Can racing series is at 1825 on Friday, May 8.

Again this year, the series will have 13 races in two halves, up from 10 in years past. Race dates are May 8, 15, and 29; and June 5, 12, 19 and 26 [Series 1]; and July 17 and 24, and August 7, 14, 21, and 28 [Series 2]. The Notice of Regatta has been posted, registration is open, and we are ready for another great season.

The regatta is open to all boats at least 20 feet in overall length. It is not necessary to be a member of a yacht club or of CBYRA to enter and race. Boats usually racing PHRF are eligible to complete with a valid PHRF certificate. 

Entry forms and more are available online, along with the Crew Finder Bulletin Board. Entry fee for the regatta is $90.00. Join us after racing each week for a casual cookout in the EYC yard!

Register Now for Boatyard Bar & Grill Regatta August 22

It's time to register for the Boatyard Bar & Grill Regatta to Benefit CRAB, a family-friendly, fun, pursuit-start race in support of a great cause, followed by a rollicking good time ashore at a post-race party at EYC complete with live music, dancing, food, and drink.

The regatta is sponsored by the Boatyard Bar & Grill, SpinSheet, Mount Gay, and Heineken. Proceeds benefit CRAB, Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating. Skippers and other supporters can set up fundraising web sites in support of CRAB here.

For those with valid PHRF certificates, registration will close on Thursday, August 20, at 8 p.m. Skippers requesting a courtesy PHRF rating for their boats must do so by 9 p.m. Friday, August 14. Currently, class starts for CRAB/Freedom 20, Harbor 20, Alerion Express 28, J/70, Cal 25, and PHRF spinnaker and non-spinnaker divisions are offered; additional one-design classes will be accepted with the receipt of 6 or more paid entries by Wednesday, August 19.

In pursuit-start racing, the smallest and ostensibly slowest boats start first with the sleek racing greyhounds with the smallest handicap ratings starting last. Whoever is first to finish wins since the handicap is effectively taken out at the start so that scoring is done on a boat-for-boat basis at the finish line. Early starters must do their best to block later starters from passing them, while later starters have their work cut out for them to pass all boats ahead of them on their way to the finish.
