Pursuit Race – Friday, June 17th
Posted On: June 13, 2016

Dear MRA Members,


If you have ever thought ‘I would like try racing my sailboat but it all seems too complicated’.

Friday, June 17th, is a chance to give it a try with a very simple around-the-buoy race - and it is free!

All you need to do is register for the race to get a start time. To do so, go to www.regattaman.com, click the ‘Calendar’ tab then scroll down to June 17 & the EYC Pursuit Race. Click on the ‘Info’ block on the right you will see choices such as “View Current Race Entries” and “Register On Line”. There you can do the sign-up. If you do not have a PHRF rating, then just leave it blank and we will assign one to you. Please check box for JAM (jib & main) since spinnakers will not be used.

Here is how the race works: at your start time (or any time thereafter) pass between the EYC boat with an orange flag and a nearby green tetrahedron. Go around the indicated buoys and finish the same way you started. Slower boats will start first. The winner will be the first boat to finish, then 2nd, 3rd, etc. will follow in order.

After putting the boats away we all gather at the EYC Sailing Center to enjoy socializing and some food (complementary) and beverages. What a great way to spend a Friday night.

If you have any questions about this fun event please email or call Jack Cochrane, jack@caiboston.com, 617-678-4174.
