Past Events

10 July - No protest was filed for last week's race.

6 July - The Potter's Cove Rendezvous was canceled due to the forecast.

6 July - The 2018-2020 South Bay Race Chart is now posted in the PHRF Racing page.

3 July - Thank you all who attended this evening’s Crew Rotation Race. Even Race Committee swapped tasks for the evening. The weather was a bit worrisome with T-Storms threatening, but the wind held until everyone made it in and there was a beautiful sunset to enjoy at the end.
Hopefully, you all enjoyed the evening as much as we did.
See you next week for continuation of the Summer Series.
Regards,
Cheryl Rienzo
JYC Fleet Captain/Race Committee Chairperson

18 June - The June Newsletter is posted now.

5 June - Last race for the Spring Series and talk about light air!  Fortunately RC shortened the course or we would still be out there.
After a damp and fairly windless evening on the water, Jamestown Yacht Club members and our Racers enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of Conanicut Yacht Club for our end of Spring series/Welcome to Summer get together. Thank you to the team at CYC who kept the dogs and burgers flowing! Also, thanks to Kate Shuhy for organizing the RSVPs!  Check out photos of the last race and the evening on our facebook page. See you next week for the first race of the summer series!

1 June - The application for the Joshua Wadsworth Leonard Scholarship is now available for download.  Application period is 1 June to 30 June.

30 May - Please note that the Draft 2018-2020 South Bay Race Chart currently available on the Sail Newport website does not include the correct 2018 JYC Courses. We are working with Sail Newport to correct. Pending the final published South Bay Chart, you are reminded to use the attached course summary. Regards,
Cheryl Rienzo
JYC Fleet Captain/Race Committee Chairperson

22 May - Racing was canceled due to really light winds.  Rain didn't help any.

15 May - Spring Race #2 canceled due to thunder storms.

8 May - Beautiful evening to start our season with great turn out for the first race….. That said, Race Committee is rusty after a winter off (at least I am).
A special thanks to Conanicut Marina for getting our dock box out on the pier for us in such short notice (today). That was a good start however, things got interesting after that.
First, I realized that I forgot the course board when I loaded our gear this morning. Then we pulled the clock out for the start and got about 2 minutes before the Class A warning when it died. We ended up using the stop watch on my phone.
From our view, the line was pretty square despite our dock start. Then as the C Fleet headed north from Z, we watched the fog roll in. Thanks to everyone for following our radio instructions for shortening course so we could get the finish in before we were truly socked in.
Hope you all enjoyed the first race anyway and made it back to your moorings/slips safely! See you out there next week.
(Reminder: it is once again a dock start).

7 May - The first race of the 2018 racing season is coming up this Tuesday.  Cheryl Rienzo has updated the race book which is posted on the website. As the 2018-2020 South Bay Racing Chart has not yet been posted, I have attached the revised courses as you will see them on that chart and as included in our Race Book. The 2015-2017 chart is not the same, so please do not use that for courses.
Also, due to the Volvo Ocean Race Newport Stop Over, the first 2 Tuesdays of our racing may see more traffic on the Bay than we normally would. Please stay alert for those not racing.
Lastly, for the first 2 Tuesday races we will be conducting dock starts. Race Committee will be on the CMS Fuel Dock for the starts as well as the normal finishes.
See you on the water!

7 Mar - The March Courier is posted.

1 Feb - Winter Dinner at Bay Voyage:  Teh winter dinner was a hge success.  A total of 43 JYC members gathered for dinner, conversation and good times at the Bay Voyage Inn.  Our esteemed Commodore won general approbation for delivering one of the shortest speeches in JYC history.  This was followed by a challenging trivia tournament dealing with nautical ephemera and local history.  The winners received hats and other highly valued prizes.  All in all, a great way to while away a winter's eve with friends and anticipate warm days to come.
Mary Giffin, Social Chair.

1 Jan - Happy New Year!
