Winter boat storage

Winter storage is being handled under a separate contract this year. Please fill out an off-season Sunfish Storage Agreement and forward it to Vice Commodore George Shuster.

Entry:

  • Skippers may introduce themselves and race one day without Racing Fee being charged.
  • There is no Racing Entry Fee charged for the New Year's Day Regatta.
  • All fees must be paid, storage contracts executed, boat hulls, spars and gear labeled, and winter-storage EYC dock sticker received, before the boat or gear may be stored at EYC, and before the skipper may race.
  • Awards will be made to the top finishers for the Season, as well as for the individual Series.

Registration and Skipper’s Responsibilities: Each participant must register with the Race Committee and sign a Waiver Form before racing. Each skipper will accept responsibility for his or her own safety during racing and for deciding whether or not to race. Skippers will realize that winter sailing presents hazards of exposure, and will dress appropriately for weather and water temperatures and will be prepared for immersion. All skippers are required to wear life jackets while on the water. Wet/dry suits are highly recommended.

Rules: International Sailing Federation The Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020 (RRS), US Sailing Association prescriptions, Sunfish Class Rules, this Notice of Race, and the posted Sailing Instructions will govern the racing.  RRS Rule 44.2 is changed.
