Sail on Sundays – May 22, 2022

David Paligo, Fleet Captain
s/v Runaway #1049

The 2022 BLYC Sailing/Racing Season has officially started with 9 boats registered and 7 boats going to the start line. This year there is strong competition amongst the PHRF racers.

At our competitors meeting, our PRO went through a starting sequence using the RC flags and sounds. With the winds directly out of the West and shifting to the NW, RC announced we would be using course C (S-1-2-1-F). Great course for our first race of the season. This gave crews a variety of marks and allow the team to remove some of that winter rust and spring cobwebs.

As many of the racers know we have gone to a new registration and scoring process so a big thanks go out to all who are working hard to make 2022 Sailing/Racing a successful season.

Looking for Crew? Want to Crew?

One of the exciting new features of using Regatta Network for our registration & scoring this year is the “Crew Finder” board.  If you are looking for crew, or if your interested in crewing on a boat, you can post to the board and hopefully connect with others and get out on the water.

Crew Finder Boards for each series and the Long Distance Races are also linked in the drop-down menus on the website, under “Sailing & Boating”
