Sunday, May 25


On Sunday, May 25, multiple round-the-buoys races will be held on the Rappahannock River for PHRF A, PHRF B, PHRF C, and PHRF NON-SPIN. The round-the-buoys races will be scored as a series separately from the Fishing Bay to Urbanna Race.  For these races, PHRF NON-SPIN will have two subclasses, Single Headsail and Double Headsail. The Single Headsail subclass will be allowed one (1) headsail downwind (1HS) and the Double Headsail (2HS) subclass will be allowed two (2) headsails downwind.  The subclasses will start together and sail the same courses.  The class flag for the 1 HS class will be as provided in the FBYC GSIs.  The class flag for 2 HS will be the same with the addition of a white flag.


Boats not returning to FBYC on Sunday, May 25 may layover at Rappahannock River Yacht Club. RRYC will sponsor a potluck supper for all participants at their club after the races.

Warning Signal

The warning signal for the first race will be at 1100.


The Starting area will be in the Rappahannock River upstream of the Rappahannock River Bridge and downstream of Rappahannock R “R6” Fl R 4s Bell. The starting and finishing lines will be between the orange or yellow flag on the Committee boat and a drop-mark pursuant to Appendix D. A round-the-buoys course using drop marks as shown in Appendix D will be used, with a windward start attempted.


If one boat in a class (i.e., PHRF A, PHRF B, PHRF C OR NON-SPIN) finishes within two (2) hours after the start for that class, then the race will be valid for all boats in that class.


The dayís winner in each class (i.e., PHRF A, PHRF B, PHRF C, or NON-SPIN) will be the boat in the class having the lowest total point score for the day. A boat may qualify for winning regardless of the number of races she has started. There will be no throw-outs for this day.



Awards for the day's races will be presented at the social event sponsored by the RRYC on Sunday, May 25, 2008.


Each race day is sanctioned as a separate event for CBYRA High Point awards.
