Ahoy ASBCYC Racers!

On Saturday, August 11, is the John Larson Memorial Race.  This fun race in memory of CIYC member and avid sailor, John Larson, is hosted by his wife and daughter, Betty Larson and Deborah (Larson) Tyhurst. With a pursuit start format there's no stress at the start line and (theoretically) all boats should finish at approximately the same time. 

 

At the Skippers Meeting each boat will receive its assigned start time and a ration of grog for the skipper and crew to give a toast to John at the start and finish. After racing will be more grog with burgers and fixins' and race awards at CIYC.

 

The NOR and SIs are posted on Regatta Network (http://www.regattanetwork.com/event/17447#_home).  Online registration is now open and early registration is strongly encouraged.  Knowing the entries and handicaps will help us to calculate start times prior to the skippers meeting, which will be held at CIYC at 9:00 on race day.

 

Looking forward to seeing you on the water next weekend!
