HBYC Shirley Freeman Memorial Race

Shirley Freeman was our first Female member and boat owner, sadly Shirley passed away in December 2014.  At the March General Meeting of Members, HBYC announced they would honour her by renaming the HBYC Lady Skippers Race to the Shirley Freeman Memorial Race.  The race will now have 2 Trophies; Shirley Freeman Memorial Trophy (1st PHS boat) and the Lady Skippers Race Trophy (1st HBYC PHS Boat).  We have also introduced the Senorita Cup Race for those who just want to get out there and give it a go.

The Lady Skippers race has been a long standing race on the HBYC calendar. In recent years the HBYC Lady Skippers Race has become Race 4 in the Port Phillip Women's Championship Series (PPWCS), a new series for female sailors that combines five races run by different clubs into one annual championship trophy.

Date: Sunday 19th April 2015 - Abandoned

This year we have a Division 1 Race, which is Race 4 of the Port Phillip Womens Championship Series (PPWCS)starting at 11:00 hrs. A HBYC Club Course of approximately nine to ten nautical miles in length.  The Lady Skippers Trophy - 1st HBYC PHS Boat and the Shirley Freeman Memorial Trophy - 1st PHS Boat will be awarded.  Entrants in this race will automatically be entered into the PPWCS (at no extra cost) and will be scored in the series. NB: For the series score, if five races are sailed, you can drop your worst performance as four races will count. If you only raced one race, then you have to carry DNS scores for the other three races in your final series score.

We have introduced the Senorita Cup, a Non Spinnaker Race starting at 11:10 hrs.  This race is aimed to encourage those Lady Skippers to sail in a race with a less competitive format. We encourage all our ladies to have a go, even if you are new to helming.  Boats owners are asked to encourage our female members, friends and family to take up the helm for the day and join in the fun of the Senorita Cup.  There is a Trophy and prize awarded on the day.  This race will be a HBYC Club Course of approximately six to seven nautical miles in length.
