Except for those hardy frostbiters, most of us have our boats tucked away for the winter.  Hopefully, you find yourself in the lucky position of having some boat fix it projects over the winter.  My main project is to refurbish the 20 year old Harken rudder bearings that have started to get too much play in them.  It has been fun, but I must admit I am getting a bit tired of chasing the little plastic ball bearings all around the basement floor.  Good thing I bought spares.


The 2021 season featured a very high number of participants in both Junior and Senior racing.  There were over 100 members at the Awards Dinner.  Fine food catered by More Than A Meal of Amos House,  an interesting, short speech by Jon Torgan of The Nature Conservancy about their efforts to protect the bay and, of course, the presentation of awards.  Take a look at the Junior page for a list of the season winners in all classes then scroll down for another link to each and every race.  On the big boat side, take a look at the  PHRF page for the annual awards.


There is also a lot of new information concerning 2022 in both of these sections.  The full junior schedule is set.  Many dates for PHRF racing are also listed so you can start planning your schedule.  Make plans to do the NBYA run races.  June 18, 2022 is the date for the ‘Round The Bay Regatta.  We will be starting from 4 different areas at the same time so your commute will be very short.  The Summer Regatta and the Yacht Club Challenge Race for three boat teams from any organization on the bay will be held on July 16 starting at Half Way Rock.  Finally, renew your membership for 22.  This link makes it easy and quick.
