    Default Drakes Bay Races

    I just went to Jibeset to register for Drakes Bay and it shows registration closed. Is it not open yet, or am I doing something wrong?

    Hey RC,
    I am available to serve on the race committee for Drake's Bay in any capacity that is needed, one or both days. Let me know when and where.

    Cheers,
    Evan

    Evan, yes YRA is the Race Committee for this race and are looking for some help at the start at the Corinthian YC. Send me a private message and I will hook you up.

    If anyone else would like to help YRA race deck also send me a PM and I will connect you to YRA RC.

    Mostly notable is the starting sequences.
    Division splits should be up shortly but the basic concept is:

    Multi-Hulls

    Crewed Mono Hulls [by division splits, low raters first]
    ** all full crew divisions start before Shorthanded Divisions
    Short Handed Mono Hulls [Combined Double and Single handed division starts; low rater divisions first]


    Also note the finish on Sunday is between CYC race deck and the Pt. Stewart Buoy. [see 9.2 in the SI's]

    Thanks Dave. I'll be waiting for Attachment 1 - I'm never sure when to start in these races.

    The RC is also planning to be "radio friendly"

    I know it's the English Professor in me, but also the sailboat racer who knows how protests can get weird when every jot and title ain't right. There is no "Pt. Stewart" on Angel Island, nor elsewhere in California. The closest might be Stewart's Point along the Northern Sonoma County Coastline. There is "Pt. Stuart" on the NW corner of Angel Island - named after an officer on the U.S. Navy ship that "explored the Bay and charted the island in 1848" according to historians. Points Blunt, Campbell, and Knox are named for other officers in that ship - the four corners in honor of four officers as it were. "Point" names are interesting because they often honor naval officers who charted them or honor (as in Pt. Chauncey along the Tiburon Peninsula) famous naval officers. But sometimes for a ship that wrecked nearby as in Pigeon Point. Rocks are more often named for the ship that "found" them as in Blossom Rock and Noonday Rock. Sometimes reefs,too, as in Colorado Reef whose buoy is a mark on the SSS HMB Race.
