Hangover:  


If you read the NOR of an event and see this:


On-line_cbyra600_pix.jpg


well, it's leftover from when we used to have race registration through the USSailing calendar on our old website.  Some of the clubs never removed it from their NORs and we didn't catch the error before publishing the Green Book.

If you DO see this, then refer to the CBYRA Calendar page, and we'll do our best to link the event on the calendar to a site where you can actually register.  Thanks and we'll look more closely at this when we publish the 2016 Green Book!


 



It's all downhill from here!

Attention Southern Bay Racers: be a part of the first race to St. Mary's City since...well, we've lost track, sometime in the late 90's?
Head out to "1NP" off Mobjack Bay on the afternoon of Friday, July 31st, and ride the building sea breeze up to join the party on the lovely campus of St. Marys College of Maryland.
What other race gives you get a 61 nm kite run?
Too hot for you?  Finish and take a nap and a shower in one of their low-cost but clean and comfortable town houses. We'd love to have y'all join our racers from the two other legs, the Potomac Leg and the Annapolis Leg. Hey, three's a crowd! 
Register here and see you at the party.

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, click on the BUY NOW button, below, allowing anyone with a valid 2015 membership to buy the PDF on-line. Not a CBYRA member?  Well, you should be, but if you aren't and still want a Green Book, you can use the same link to purchase one.  We are still working on printing info, if you 'd like a third party to handle the printing chore...details later!

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.
