Trial Thursday Twilight Race Program

Updated - Trial Thursday Twilight Race Program

There are already 13 boats entered!!! Muriel & John Allen are donating their time and money to supply snags 'n' onions in bread for the competitors of this event. Thank you, this is much appreciated and means the usual food volunteers can participate in the series.

While the current Wednesday Twilight Racing format is popular with a large number of skippers, there have been a number of requests from members of both HBYC and RYCV for an alternative Twilight Race format.

It has been decided to trial, a five race Pursuit Series (Non Spinnaker), on a Thursday Evening, commencing on Thursday, 29th January, 2015 and continuing each Thursday evening, concluding on Thursday, 26th February, 2015.

Planned features of the Trial format are

  1. Free Entry for participants from both HBYC and RYCV.
  2. The Race format is Pursuit – Non Spinnaker.
  3. Race to commence at 18:05 hrs.
  4. All races will start and finish on the eastern side of the main channel.
  5. A primary objective is for the majority of competitors to finish by 19:30hrs.
  6. Races will be conducted by the HBYC as a Combined Series, between HBYC and RYCV Entrants.
  7. Entry for the Trial Series will be via Top Yacht on the HBYC website.
  8. Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions Available here

If the Trial is successful, it is intended to run a ten Race Thursday Twilight Summer Series 2015/2016, with Races commencing mid November and concluding by the end of February.
