NEWS, CALENDARS and OTHER ORGANIZATIONAL ITEMS FOR ONE-DESIGN FLEETS AND SAILORS
One of questions we have been hearing is: "what does CBYRA do for OD racers and fleets?"
As OD racing began to change and go its own way in the past decade, there has been little attempt to coordinate schedules and events.
This affects Handicap Racing, too, as OD events can cut down on available crew and race management options.
We at CBYRA are trying to revive an attempt to, at the very least, publish a schedule of events and let OD racers know of other events that affect their fleets, tbings like clinic and race management seminars. Team racing is another variation of OD racing that we'd like to support and publicize.
So we hope to develop these OD pages on our site and ask the OD racing community to chime in with any content they'd like to share -- photos from your events would be hugely appreciated!
Thanks for your patience and support!

News From Around the Bay
The Tred Avon Yacht Club has been selected to host the 2018 Star World Championships which will be held in early October 2018
The success of the 2014 Start North American Championship played a huge role in TAYC’s selection to host such a prestigious and historic event. The history of the Star class and the Star World Championship is extremely rich going back to 1923. The United States has hosted the event many times but only four times in the last 10 years. TAYC and Oxford, Maryland will soon join the ranks of other Star Worlds Championships host sites such as Miami, Buenos Aires, San Diego, Hyeres, Perth, Rio de Janeiro, Varburg, Cascals, and San Francisco to name a few. The Chesapeake Bay has hosted three prior Championships- The Chesapeake Bay Fleet off Gibson Island hosted the Championship in 1930 and 1951 and more recently the Annapolis Yacht Club hosted the event in 2000. TAYC member connections to the World Championship include Robert Lippincott (winning skipper in 1950), Skip and Mary Ethcells (winning team in 1951) and current member Andrew Campbell (runner-up Skipper in 2013).The 2016 Star Worlds took place last week in Miami, Florida.
