Summer 2008 JYC Cruise Report


On Wednesday, we had a very relaxing informal cruising meeting outside, at the Trattoria.  

The ideas talked about were the following;

June 21/22.

Midsummer weekend cruise/race to Block Island.      

Informal "race" as you go over.  Leg 1.   As you past due east of the green bouy just east of Clingstone, record your time, and then as you cross a line running southeast from Point Judith light, record your time.  

Leg 2.  Start is the finish time of leg one, and then record finish time as you round the entrance buoy to Great Salt pond, Block Island.

We'll use PHRF - or assign ratings, and work out a leg 1, leg 2 and combined winner over there.

I can do this date, and am happy to organize it.

July 11/12

On the JYC calendar - we have this date posted also for a Block Island cruise.   I cannot do this date - so would need someone else to take the lead here.  If the desire to do another location instead, then , of course, that’s fine!

any ideas or suggestions - please contact me, and we can see what develops.

Annual cruise.

The calendar dates are 19th - 27th July.

2 options are suggested.

Option 1.   The CYC cruise is the same week, and there is an offer by CYC to combine it with JYC- .
Its being organized by Chris Powell, and cruising with Chris will be the Calabrettas, Buckleys, Knights and Brins .
