Barnes Bay Regatta Cruise 20 March 2021
Our cruising members would have heard by now about the inclusion of a Cruising Division for this regatta. Most cruisers have opted for the less formal approach of not starting at a specific time but recording our starting time as we pass the BYC starting box and our own finishing time once abeam Woodcutters Point. There is no obligation to start on the same day if you want to make go elsewhere prior to Regatta day
As usual we will use Bear’s Universal Measurement System (BUMS) to work out final placings and award prizes.
Cruisers with a competitive nature may enter the racing division if they wish following the usual club race entry procedures.
Cruisers are asked to register their intention to cruise via the Cruise Registration button below
Please let us know if you decide to withdraw
For additional information: Call Mark Koppelmann 0408 038 376
All BYC Members and Associated Sailing Clubs are welcome to join the BYC Cruise Team on one or more of our cruises in company. Any information we may provide is only a reference.
Regardless of any information supplied by the BYC Cruise Team or its members, the skipper is solely responsible for their boat at all times. (This would include such basics as your own weather routing, alternative anchorages and appropriate safety checks and gear for the level of cruise you are on, etc)
By registering, you accept that the decision to participate is your responsibility as the boat’s skipper. When registering to cruise in company, we will contact you on the mobile number you have provided or by email prior to the start of the cruise. Radio calls may be used to keep in contact whilst on the cruise if out of mobile range.
This would be at a notified time (Ch 16 move to working Channel 77, 72 or 73 at callers discretion) We ask that, if you as the skipper of your yacht, decide to cancel or withdraw during a cruise that you please communicate this with the BYC Cruise team leader at the time.
