Sailing Committee: Mike Mears
Black Rock Harbor Wednesday Night Racing 2020 (“WNR”) has been postponed until June 10th. The start of the season, because of the restrictions currently in place as well as the club restrictions, all regattas in May have been cancelled or moved.
US Sailing is advising nationally, because of the social distance restrictions, that it is not feasible to run a fully crewed race event until the local authorities have lifted the social distancing restrictions. If the local environment changes, we will adjust our schedule.
We are working on some other ideas, based on the US Sailing recommendation to possibly hold a few fun Double Handed races in the meantime. All WNR registered boats will be notified directly if we decide to sponsor a Double Handed race event. These events would not be scored or count towards the WNR series.
Please register on Yachtscoring.com or if you are just interested in competing please feel free to email me directly. An announcement for a new date to hold the skippers meeting will be made in the next few weeks.
All are welcome to sail WNR. It is a great way to improve your boat handling and meet other sailors at the club. Beginners are welcome and encouraged. To be scored in WNR you must have a YRALIS PHRF certificate.
