Volunteers are needed this year to help out as Regatta Chairs. It’s a fun way to get involved with Race Committee and it doesn’t require a lot of experience. It involves organizing the event beforehand and making sure all the on-shore activities are arranged. If you’re interested in getting involved, please let us know!
All of our regattas and training events are now set up for online sign-up. To participate is easy and just a couple clicks away. So … how do you volunteer or sign up for the training days? Click here (or use the “Regatta Registration” link on the EYC Racing page) and log in. If you haven’t done this before, you will need to register by entering your email address and creating a password. If you have trouble logging in, whether you’re a new user or you’ve been there before, get help by email. Once you’re in, you’ll see a button at the top marked “Volunteer.” Click on it and you’ll see a list of regatta names and duty dates. Pick one which interests you, click on it, and choose your job from the list of those available. That’s all there is to it. You’ll get a confirmation email in return.
If you have any questions or want to be on the Race Committee distribution list to stay informed of Race Committee updates, please send us an email.
Did you know that race organizers' responsibilities include Protest Committee? Protest Committee is an important aspect of the sport of sailboat racing and the EYC Race Committee is looking to get more people involved in support of the busy EYC race calendar.
The Race Committee will host a US Sailing-certified Club-level Judges Seminar on Saturday, January 11, 0800-1730. The cost is $35; more details can be found here. Or you may download a printer-friendly PDF here.
Additional training sessions in other aspects of race management are planned for early 2014 as well.
It's been a busy season, with plenty of activity on the water. Only one EYC Racing event is left on the 2013 calendar: our popular Leftover Bowl on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 30 this year.
Our 2014 calendar is shaping up with old favorites and some new twists. We'll also be hosting the 2014 J/80 World Championship beginning in September, so it's going to be an exciting year.
