Sunset and Winter Races

 

Covid Restrictions

WEDNESDAY NIGHT SUNSET RACES HAVE RESUMED AND WILL MAINTAIN COMPLIANCE WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENTS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, RACES WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING SPECIAL RULES:


  1. Skippers must bring their own crew, limited to family members or members of the skipper’s “Social Bubble”

  2. There will be no pre-race meeting at the Club. All participants head directly to their boats and monitor channel 71 for starting information and updates. Races will start at 6:00 PM.

  3. There will be no post-race meal or bar service. 

Liability Releases

Skippers: In order to participate you must either register on www.jibeset.net or complete and sign the  Skipper Release Form prior to racing.


Crew: All crew members must complete and sign the Crew Release Form prior to racing.


Please complete these forms and either bring them to the skippers meeting or email to regatta@cpyc.com before the race.  Extra release forms will be available at the Club.

Winter Sailing

Winter Races are held on the second and fourth Sundays of January, February, and March.  Boats typically leave the docks at approximately 1:00 PM, and races are typically finished by 4:00 PM.

For those who become more serious about the sport, arrange to crew on a boat during the monthly CPYC regattas which are typically held the first Saturday of the month.

Spring/Summer Series: Wednesdays,
July 1st through October 14th


Our Wednesday Night Sunset Races are informal races utilizing a Rabbit start, i.e. no race committee. The race course is around the local racing marks outside of the Marina.  Due to the physical nature involved with sailing, we recommend that you not bring along children under the age of 14.

Clothing

How to Dress and What to Bring:  Please bring non-marking boat shoes, (tennis shoes), and dress in layers–a simple sweatshirt won’t do much against the wind. Appropriate attire would be jeans, a turtle-neck shirt, a sweater, and a windbreaker jacket.  A stocking cap is recommended, as it can get windy very quickly. It is highly recommended that you bring a change of clothing just in case you get wet.

Lifejackets

If you have a life jacket, bring it along; your boat skipper may have extras, but you should have one just in case.  A watersports vest works fine.

What to Expect

What to Expect as Crew: Depending on your experience level, you may be asked to do some physical work, such as grinding winches or pulling sheets.  When the boat tacks (changes direction), you may need to move very quickly in a small, crowded area, or move to the opposite side of the boat. Be aware of your surroundings–especially the boom (horizontal part holding the base of the sail)–it can change directions unexpectedly!
