JUST THE TWO (or one) OF US


DHcbyra550px.jpg


If you're tired of trying to recruit enough people to flesh out a race crew, don't give up.

Next year, if the folks behind the effort get enough support from the racing community, look for a series of Doubled-Handed races.  Not having enough rail meat to flatten out the boat means a lot less when each boat in the race is facing that same handicap. 

As an aside, a non-affiliated club above the bridge had 21 boats registered and 18 participating in a recent DH race. So, the interest is definitely there!

If you'd like to get in on the planning stages of short-handed racing, or just let the organizers know you are interested in participating next year, shoot them an email at:

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.
