The HRYC would like to organize a 6 week summer series starting 06.24.2020, and ending on 07.29.2020. Please remember we are using the RRS, however, there will be no protests, and NO COLLISIONS. And above all stay safe and have fun.
Each skipper is 100% responsible for the safety of their crew and the safe operation of their boat.
Crews from outside the household must maintain 6’ safe social distance at all times.

It is recommended that boats are sanitized pre and post race. Methods for sanitizing include washing with biodegradable soap and water.

There will be no RC on station. Instead, there will be an assigned RC Boat that will have a horn and run the following sequence: 5 min blast, 4 min blast 1 min blast, START. Second place boat from previous week will be the RC boat.
All boats are required to carry a VHF and monitor 72
First boat to finish must remain on station and take finish times (highly suggest carrying paper and pencil)
18:10 - JAM 5min sequence. This is for jib and main only, course to be announced the day of.
18:25 - Flying Sails 5min sequence. This is for flying sails, course to be announced the day of.
Again, Each skipper is 100% responsible for the safety of their crew and the safe operation of their boat. If you are uncomfortable with bringing outside crew, then don’t. If you are uncomfortable with flying a kite with shortened crew, then don’t. If it is too windy for your comfort level, then don’t go race.
