The winter weather will be getting warmer and water temperatures will be rising soon and it will be time for our 2019 Club Dinghy Spring Series to begin.  That means it is time to get our boats and bodies in shape and for our dedicated River Rats to sign up for Race Committee duty.  The first race day is in less than two months, Sunday, March 31 and the series will go through May 19.  We expect to have classes in MC Scows, Sunfish, Optis, Bics, VXs and hopefully Lasers, 420s, and JY 15s.  But other classes are welcome if we have at least three boats registered.

Please go to the BYSC website and click on “Sailing” and then click on the “Dinghy Club Series” page. There you will find the 2019 Notice of Race (NOR), the 2019 Sailing Instructions (SIs), Course Diagrams, Registration information, and a link to the Signup Genius for volunteers on the Race Committees.

We will also be holding a Sailors Meeting at the club on Sunday, March 10 at 1 pm, to talk over our sailing/racing program.  You will want to be there for that.

But we especially need race committee volunteers to begin signing up now.  Not only is this an opportunity to earn volunteer hours credit for 2019, it is a wonderful day on the water with friends, and a terrific service to our sailors.
