Reschedule of Chappy Bowl and PHRF Race August 4th

posted Aug 3, 2013, 8:42 PM by John Klaus

Hi All,

I apologize, but it appears that the schedule on the website is not accurate.

The timing for the chappy bowl would be at low tide.

As such, we are going to conduct the Chappy Bowl for Sakonnets and Beetles on Saturday August 24th.

All Beetle and Sakonnet Fleet Racers who have raced during JULY up to August 3rd are eligible for the chappy bowl.

Please email me if you would like to Participate, so that I can get a proper headcount.

Additionally, it appears that the regular Sunday PHRF race was not on the schedule for August 4th.

That race will be conducted as usual.

The skippers meeting with be down at little pier at 12 pm.

Please contact me with any questions.

Best,

John Klaus

Dear Fleet Racers,
 
Welcome to the 2013 racing season. The season kicked off this past Sunday June 23rd with the annual Dash to the Ledge. The dash to the ledge was won by LUX (Skipper'd by John Klaus and with Crew lead by Margot Hurley & David Klaus). It was a beautiful day for sailing with a nice breeze (20 Mph) and a steady direction (SSW).
 
The 2012 scores have been updated on the past champions section of the website. Congratulations again on all of our 2012 champions and their crew!
 
As a reminder, I will be updating this site regularly with scores during the summer, so please check back regularly.

2012 Fleet Racing Season

posted Jun 25, 2012, 7:03 AM by John Klaus

Hello CYC Fleet Racers,
 
I am excited that we are back in the summer racing season!
 
I am hoping that all of the fleets have a great time racing down at Chapoquoit this year:
 
Beetles
420s
Optimists
PHRF
Sakonnets
 
Please check back into this site regularly for updates and race cancellations.
 
If you need to get in touch with me, my contact information is on the main site or you can comment in the comments page of this site.
 
I check both my email and this site's comment box regularly, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need information or assistance.
 
There is also a new policy for youth Sailor's (12+ or by instructor recommendation).
 
Any youth sailor that is interested can speak to their instructors about getting on board a PHRF ship for the Sunday PHRF races.
 
We have a large group of experienced racers in the PHRF fleet (myself included) and I hope Junior sailors will take advantage of this opportunity to get involved in our great events!
 
As with prior years adult members who are interested in participating in the PHRF races, please come down to little pier at 12 pm on the day of the races and we will try and find a spot for you (we have not turned anyone away so far).
 
See you out on the course.
 
Best Regards,

On Sunday the weather was particularly bad.

Hopefully we can make up a race for the PHRF racers next Sunday.
 
Sakonnet racers stay tuned.

CYC UNKIE Cup a Big Success

posted Jul 7, 2011, 6:49 AM by John Klaus   [ updated Jul 7, 2011, 11:40 AM ]



This Wednesday featured the first leg of the UNKIE Cup. The one day regatta featured 60 racers across two starting line areas. There was a decent breeze and light fog which provided a great backdrop to a competitive day of racing between the Opti Sailors of Chapoquoit, Wild Harbor, Megansett, Quissett, and Buzzards Yacht Clubs. This long running tradition has become a staple regatta of summer on Buzzards bay.

Congratulations to all the CYC Sailors who participated!

See our new webpage for UNKIE Cup results.
