HYC frostbiting aims to offer great racing and friendly competition during the winter, from November through March.
Our number one priority is to keep our sailors, mark boat drivers, and RC safe. The PRO has the final authority to decide whether racing shall take place on a given day.
Our goal is to promote fair and rule-abiding sailing and to provide a platform for training and developing racing skills at all levels.
Sailors are encouraged to sail clean and fast. Aggressive and risky sailing is discouraged because of the cold temperatures, which often aggravate a maneuver gone wrong.
Any bullying towards the RC, mark boats, or fellow sailors will not be tolerated.
Anyone failing to observe Rule 2 - FAIR SAILING or Rule 69 - MISCONDUCT will not be scored for the day.
We are gearing up for another Frostbiting season at Huguenot Yacht Club, and you are invited to join us! So here's a brief description of what we do and a link to the registration page. Those who have been with us before, thanks for coming back. We have grown because of you! Welcome to those who have heard about us and think this is the year to join in!
What we do: We race ILCA 7, 6, and 4 / Lasers Standard, Radial, and 4.7s.
When we do it: Pretty much every Sunday from early November to early April.
Who we are: Some young and some perpetually young. Some are new to racing Lasers, and some constantly updating their skills. Some are quite fast already, and some are still dialing it in. And we are all good people! Competitive with and supportive of one another.
To sign up, for pricing: https://theclubspot.com/regatta/0c0gMIpmR8
To charter a boat if you need one: Request for Laser Charter
When to sign up: NOW!!! Like in Yesterday type of Now! Because Huguenot Yacht Club is dredging its marina this year, we have a limited number of spaces on the dock. Signing up soon means you're sure to get a spot.
Racing Lasers or ILCA sailing dinghies, we race up to 6 races most Sundays over two seasons - a Fall/Winter Series and a Winter/Spring Series - sandwiched between a Halloween Practice Day and something of a distance race - the Execution Rocks Race Out and Return (E.R.R.O.R) - which all adds up to around 22 days of racing from late Fall to early Spring; all in a fairly protected bay of Long Island Sound; all managed by a PRO and Race Committee and supported by a couple of whalers and Ribcraft if you get into trouble. And all this happens ...
Huguenot Yacht Club has a clubhouse to change in, a restaurant and bar, and an outdoor porch on which to eat and drink and generally chat it up after the races. We will use Glen Island Yacht Club to store and launch your boat.
And your registration means you are a Winter Member, which means you have an account that all your drinks and food go on and that you have all the other privileges that membership provides.
So press the Clubspot link to learn more and to register.
Again, that's here: https://theclubspot.com/regatta/0c0gMIpmR8
