It is the goal of these rules and guidelines to encourage and promote a very high degree of competitive racing at MBYC. Competitive racing can suffer by having too few classes, which tends to stifle the inherent capability or tastes of our membership and by having too many classes, which tends to dilute the number of competitors in each class. As new boats come into being and older classes pass from popularity and the character of the sport of sailboat racing changes, a method of changing the composition of MBYC one-design racing is required. However, this method should be deliberate and orderly to provide a tryout period for new classes and to provide time for members to dispose of older class boats without undue financial loss.
To race, look for the “bay series” on the calendar, usually on Sunday. Sign-up on the bulletin board just outside the Galley door by finding the sign-up sheet for your boat class, be sure to sign your name and insert your boat number. Take a look at the race course maps links below, there will be print-outs of these maps just beneath the sign-up sheets.
