THE ONLY RACE AROUND THE BAY IS BACK!

Div A (74nm - CAT 4) —1055 1000 hours
Div B (40nm - CAT 5N) —1100  1005 hours

Not only is it perfect for the Ocean Racing boats with it’s long legs, but the HBYC Sailing Committee also believe that this race is a perfect opportunity to introduce novice skippers to the seamanship and navigation skillsrequired for long distance and night sailing. There is even a trophies for the best prepared log book and navigator!

HBYC’s bar will be open from 8.30am. Why not grab some cold drinks while picking up your pre-ordered freshly made Egg & Bacon and Lunch rolls? Send an email to2016SeaPilots@hbyc.org.au and we will email you the details of how to.

OUR PROMISE

HBYC will continue the tradition of ensuring all boats and their crew have warm food and cold drinks available at the club house when they arrive home 

NO MATTER WHAT TIME!!!

MEMBERS WE NEED YOU

As you know, HBYC is run primarily by Volunteers and this our longest race, counts on a huge amount of volunteers to make it a success.  It is common for it to be an 14 - 20 Race, which means we need Volunteers for the whole period as well as before and after!  We need volunteers to help with:  Food Preparation - Friday evening, early Saturday morning, from about 5pm Saturday and potentially all night, Radio Operators and General Hands.  If you can help, even for an hour, please email: 2016SeaPilots@hbyc.org.au
