EGYC Centennial Regatta 18/19 July 2009

Save the date for the East Greenwich Yacht Club’s Centennial Regatta. This exciting event is scheduled for July 17-19, 2009 and I will guarantee you that we have something for everyone……

If you are a SERIOUS RACER ~ We have a semi-serious pursuit race scheduled for July 18th. We will be offering both Spinnaker & Non-Spinnaker racing divisions.

If you are a CRUISER who has never raced or have not raced in a long time ~ We have a Cruising Canvas division. You’ll still get to go sail the course with the non-Spinnaker boats, but will be eligible for special awards in this class. We’ll even assign you a rating number!

If you own a POWERBOAT ~ We have a Predicted Log event planned. This event tests both the knowledge of your own boat and your navigation skills. We are also looking for powerboats to serve as photo-boats in different areas around the racecourse and help with race committee and mark boats for Sunday’s small boat event.

If you own a small ONE DESIGN ~ We will be running OD Races on Sunday, July 19th. We hope to have classes for Lasers, Laser Radials, Laser 4.7’s, 420’s, & Optimists. We’ll start ANY class that has 7 or more boats pre-registered before July 1st.

If you LIKE FOOD & MUSIC ~ We have an AWESOME deck party planned for Saturday night. Live music, great food, and beer kegs on the deck. You DO NOT need to be part of the on-the-water events to come enjoy this deck party!

Proceeds from this event will benefit Big Sisters of Rhode Island. We’ll be collecting lightly used clothing all weekend. We will have additional details in June.

What can you do?

PLEASE sign up early and encourage others to do the same. We’ll be posting lists of all the boats (Power & Sail) on the Centennial Regatta web site as they arrive. I’ve attached an entry form to this email that you can fill out and send back to us. Remember, you can sign up for the party without being part of the on-the-water activities!

Application can be mailed to:

EGYC Race Committee
PO Box 267
East Greenwich, RI 02818

Notice of Race

EGYC Centennial Regatta

July 18-19, 2009

This is a two day event. This event is designed to celebrate the 100 years of sailing at the East Greenwich Yacht Club, for both cruising classes (family class, non-spinnaker and spinnaker) and OD classes sailed in dingies. This is an opportunity for family and friends to race with each other on Saturday in a Cruising Class Pursuit Race and against each other in a dinghy Regatta on Sunday. Two classes will be run, a spinnaker and a non-spinnaker class. Within the non-spinnaker class there will be a Family Cruising Division for those yacht's optimized for cruising.

A dinner will be held at the East Greenwich Yacht Club on Saturday evening. For those yachts participating from yacht clubs outside of Greenwich Bay, free birthing (mooring or slip) will be provided free of charge for both Friday July 17th 2009 and Saturday July 18th in the close proximity of the EGYC. This is to extend EGYC’s hospitality while encouraging participation in its deck party with food, beverages, music and awards ceremonies.

To encourage participation for Family Cruising Division yachts, the East Greenwich Yacht Club’s Measurer may assign a rating for this event only in the following two (2) ways:
First, while PHRF-NB certificates are being encouraged, they are not required for this event. A rating, for this event only, can be assigned by the EGYC Measurer.
Second, adjustments to the yacht’s PHRF-NB rating may be given by the EGYC Measurer to adjust for yachts optimized for cruising.

Schedule of Events:

Friday, July 17, 2009 1800: Skippers meeting at the East Greenwich Yacht Club, not mandatory.

Saturday, July 18, 2009 1100: Cruising Class Pursuit Race around government buoys for cruising class yachts with starts staggered according to PHRF rating with family and friends as crew encouraged. There will be two Classes, Spinnaker and Non-spinnaker. This is a pursuit race with staggered starts. To simplify the starting process the Race Committee will announce on the Race Committee VHF working channel the yachts which will start next. While all efforts will be made to inform all competitors of the starting order failure of a yacht to hear the announcement will not be grounds for protest.

Saturday, July 18, 2009 1700: (Grand deck party with music, beer, food and beverages, Awards, will also be presented that night at the East Greenwich Yacht Club.

Sunday, July 19, 2009 1100: Dinghy Regatta for Laser, Laser Radial, Sunfish, and 420s. All ages are invited. There will be separate scoring for age groups.
