CBYRA and/or US Sailing membership may be required to receive a discounted entry fee for some regattas.
Announcing the EYC Member Access Keelboat Program
The new Member Access Keelboat program is similar to the Junior Fleet-sponsored Watercraft Access program. In cooperation with the Annapolis Match Race Center, the goal is to provide EYC members with the opportunity for lessons through the Junior Fleet program as well as to practice, one design race, and scrimmage locally. An additional goal is to provide members the opportunity to just go sailing with friends or family from EYC.
The Annapolis Match Race Center (AMRC) is a non-profit organization with donated J/22s but no physical property to store them. AMRC has teamed up with EYC and will store 3 J/22s on EYC grounds, and EYC members will be able to use them for activities such as Monday night match racing, Tuesday night team racing practices, and Wednesday/Thursday/Friday night harbor racing series. The boats will also be available for local weekend regattas and scrimmages.
The boats will be located in three dry slips and maintained by Junior Fleet staff and volunteers. Skippers of the boats will be checked out prior to being authorized to use the boat.
Fawcett/EYC Beer Can Season Starts May 6
The first gun for the 2015 Fawcett/EYC Friday Night Beer Can racing series is at 1825 on Friday, May 6.
New this year, the series will have 14 races in two halves, up from last year's 13. Race dates are May 6, 13, and 20; and June 3, 10, 17 and 24 [Series 1]; and July 8, 15, 22 and 29, and August 12, 19, and 26 [Series 2]. The Notice of Race has been posted, registration is open, entries are coming in 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.
In the spirit of Beer Can racing everywhere, we offer (with a nod of thanks to Scuttlebutt and Latitude 38) the Ten Commandments of Beer Can Racing.
