Summer Race Team Update

Hello Sailors!

Update from the BYC Race Team.

We have added an option for sailors who are unable to travel to the away regattas. Our "Home Team" participates in practice, Wednesday night races, and the home BYC regatta. The cost is $250. Use the promo code 
HOME at checkout to use the discount. Email youthsailing@byc.org with questions!


Let me know if you have any questions!
Additionally if cost is a prohibitive factor for you, please let me know via email.

Summer Race Team

Good Afternoon Sailors!

Race Team

I wanted to share the BYC will be hosting their Summer Race Team starting NEXT WEEK.
This is an amazing opportunity to get more time on the water, continue to compete, and exponentially improve as racers.  

You can register for the team here - https://byc.org/summer-race-team
All of you will either be sailing in a Laser or FJ (sorry, no Optis! :) ) 

I'd love to see all of you out there this summer, there are some really fun regattas, opportunities to sail 3+ times a week, and everything is optional (totally fine if you need to miss a practice here and there).  It should be a really fun, warm, windy time out on the water.  

If parents are interested, there will be an educational zoom next week.

NWYRC Parent Orientation Zoom (Mon, June 20 @ 7:30pm)
All you need to know about how to participate in the NWYRC Summer Series! How does a regatta work? What are the expectations of sailors, parents, and hosts? What fleet is right for my sailor? How does the scoring work? Plus registration tips, venue specific info and more, so mark your calendar! Even if you're a seasoned regatta parent, you might learn something new! We will share the recording afterwards if you can't make it.

Topic: NWYRC Parent Orientation
Time: Jun 20, 2022 07:30 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)

Ski to Sea Boat Moving

Team, 

Today after school we need to move some of our boats to clear space for the Ski to Sea race.  PLEASE come help.  If we can get most of the team it will only take about 20 minutes.

Thanks,

I'm also curious if there are people interested in participating in the Summer Series

Re: Practice this week

Just to clarify, we will be having our normal practices this week, and in addition some days may be combined practices for extra fun.

RC Help Needed

We have had 3 race committee volunteers inform us they tested positive and aren't able to come this weekend.  We could use more help on the water.  Looking for someone to either drive a mark boat or be the assistant in the mark boat moving marks.  Please let me know if you can help.  Thanks,
