JHYC VALENTINE'S REGATTA UPDATETuesday 11th February 2014
'We now have around a dozen entries, with more promised. Racing will be in two classes, Racing and Cruising, with different courses for each.
Registration will be at the Jolly Harbour Commercial Centre adjacent to West Point Bar on Friday 14th February between 12 noon and 6pm.
The “fun/practice races” on Friday afternoon can be undertaken before or after Registration.
Elapsed times for these races must be in the hands of the Race Organisers by 1700 Hrs.
Bow numbers are available for yachts with no sail numbers, as these are expensive items a returnable deposit of EC$50 will be required.
Remember the entry fee is US$3.00 per foot, payable at registration.
Please bring a copy of your latest CSA rating certificate, or some information regarding your yacht’s LOA, LWL, beam, draught, tonnage and sail area & plan, so that a reasonable rating can be allocated.
John Coveney, an International Race Officer and Regional Judge who is visiting JH has kindly volunteered to chair the Racers protest committee, Geoffrey Pidduck (an International Judge) will do the same for the Cruisers.
Concerning “fun racing” on Friday 14th Feb (St Valentine’s Day) the Commodore proposed two formats in his last Newsletter. In the absence of any negative feedback, we will go ahead with the two different format races, one designed for visitors, to familiarize themselves with the new buoys in Five Island Bay, the other to generate interest among homeowners and visitors in the Regatta. It has now been decided to have a set course for the “find the buoys” race. A Notice of Race & Sailing Instructions for each race will be available on the Club website www.JHYCantigua.com shortly, hard copies will be available at West Point Bar on Thursday next. In particular, we would like to see some lady helms in the shorter round the harbor publicity race, a prize will be given for the first Lady Helm in that race.
Updated Notice of Race is available here.
