ABOUT THOSE GREEN BOOKS:

THEY ARE DONE.  Or more to the point, IT'S done.  It's an electronic file this year.  You merely plunk down 5 bucks and you get the file.  You can have it printed and bound, you can print it at home, or you can just load it on to a tablet or phone and pull up the electronic file on the race course. No more, "darn it, I left the Green Book in the car (or the kitchen, or the office)."

The 2015 Green Book is available for purchase on-line when you renew your membership or join CBYRA.  The five bucks will provide you with one licensed PDF file of the publication.  If you've already renewed (or joined) and didn't buy a Green Book but want one now, stay tuned, we'll create an "event" on the registration page soon, allowing anyone with a valid 2015 membership to buy the PDF on-line.

 


 

For clubs that want to use Regatta Network as a management tool for their next race, go to their login page and sign up.  Regatta Network will walk you through the process of getting your race on-line and ready for registrants.

CHESAPEAKE SHORTHANDED SAILING SOCIETY:

FIRST RACING SEASON GETS OFF TO A GREAT START


 JeffHalsingling.jpg

 

The Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing Society (CHESSS) membership has grown rapidly since the beginning of the year. CHESSS held its first organizational meeting during which there was agreement upon modifications to the SI’s to be used for their first season of short-handed racing.  

 

A number of clubs have offered CHESSS starts in already scheduled CBYRA sanctioned races. The first year CHESSS expects to field between 8 and 16 boats on the starting line for the events that will have Short-handed starts. CHESSS’s season will begin with a warm up race in the Annapolis area which is currently scheduled on April 18th. The first scored race of the 2015 season will be the West River Sailing Club Classic on Saturday, May 9th

 

CHESSS anticipates a single shorthanded class start in each of the races hosting our class during the 2015 season. CHESSS will be scoring these starters in three sub-classes: Shorthanded Spinnaker, Shorthanded Non-Spinnaker and Shorthanded Multihull. In races where there are more than 6 boats in one of these classes, CHESSS will also score the winning single-handed and the winning double-handed in that class. 

 

The Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing Society has been organized to provide single-handed (SH) and double handed (DH) sailors with the knowledge, resources and organization to safely race and cruise shorthanded on the Chesapeake. At present, CHESSS is working to learn and implement best practices for single-handed and double-handed racing with the goal of creating long term SH and DH class racing on the Chesapeake.

 

CHESSS also hopes to provide an organizational framework and forum for members to discuss and implement safety requirements and techniques unique to shorthand sailing within the busy Chesapeakesailing environment. CHESSS is currently looking for additional CHESSS members and participants in CHESSS's 2015 racing season. For more information please e-mail Rich Acuti at: salvage210@gmail.com

WHERE TO GO


AccessToSailing225px.jpg


One of the "Takeaways" from the USSailing Leadership Forum was a question that asked:

"How can....organizations and other sailing industries integrate with their local communities to provide more awareness for prospective new sailors and waterfront access...?"

With this in mind, CBYRA has created a new page on this site devoted to getting new people on the water.  We've listed six organizations that you can get in touch with if you are new to sailing or have never sailed and would really like to.

This list is by no means comprehensive and we strongly encourage you to send us the names of other organizations that could be a resource, even if it is just a waterfront park that allows kids to launch a dinghy!

Thanks, and we hope to hear from you.
