DESCRIPTION This event is open to FBYC club members and all sailors interested in racing their sailboat, developing their sailing skills and being part of a great sailing tradition on the Chesapeake Bay.
CLASSES Flying Scot, Melges 15, ILCA (Part of the ILCA - 5 Race Series) and any class of any three like or unlike one-design boats is also invited to race. The Portsmouth Number (D-PN-2) handicapping system will be used to score classes of unlike boats. If there are fewer than three Portsmouth class boats they may participate in a parent class fleet (eg. Flying Scot) and race against them under the Portsmouth system. They will receive a Portsmouth score for this race day but will not be counted towards series scoring. The parent class will still maintain their own separate class scoring.
LATE REGISTRATION & CHECK IN At 1100 on the downstairs porch of the main clubhouse. Skippers Meeting will be held at 1130 started by the PRO and followed by the Fleet Captains with any desired fleet discussion, questions, tips, etc.
WARNING The first warning signal will be at 1300
REGISTRATION To be eligible for scoring, all participants must register prior to the start of the first race. Event registration, information and notices can be found at the event website on Regatta Network
