2014 YRA Annual Meeting - A Festive Start to the Holiday Season

The YRALIS held its 2014 Annual Meeting last Sunday in the beautiful Schaefer Room at Larchmont YC.  The lovely holiday decorations and the glittering trophies added a special ambiance to the room.  Add in the jovial award-winners and their friends and family, plus some time for pre-meeting refreshments and the scene at LYC was in full celebration mode.  Dawn Riley, Executive Director, Oakcliff Sailing Center, wowed the crowd with her take on recent activity on Leg 2 of the Volvo Ocean Race.  Even though most of the audience was familiar with the mishap to Team Vestas Wind forcing them to cease racing, you could hear a pin drop as Dawn spoke of what actually happened.  Thank you, Dawn, for your, as always, entertaining and informative presentation.

Minimum Equipment and Safety Recommendations of the YRA of Long Island Sound

It is the purpose of these recommendations to establish a uniform minimum equipment and accommodation standard for yacht racing on Long Island Sound. These recommendations are intended to supplement rather than replace government requirements and the Racing Rules of Sailing. The responsibility for providing and maintaining a safe and seaworthy vessel rests entirely on the owner.

LETS HAVE SOME FUN WITH THE FAMILY

 

 

Do you remember the days when sailing was a family affair? Do you remember when it was OK to camp out on the boat during Block Island Race Week? DO you remember when getting two races in on a single day was a very big deal?  Do you remember when spouses and kids were a normal part of the crew? Do you remember then it was OK to ask the crew to chip in for housing or, heaven forbid, buy their own drink bracelets….When the subject of growing our sport comes up in conversation (and it frequently does), I always think back to when I, along with a dozen teenage friends, fell in love with big-boat sailing. We all loved being on water, but we also loved the social scene when the sailing day was over.  Not one of us would ever miss an event.  MORE

DOUBLE-HANDED RACING

More and more races are sponsoring Double-Handed divisions for both short and long distance races. And with each boat only needing two people we could theoretically grow the number of entrants many fold. Stamford Yacht Club even has a weekend regatta just for us. My advice to anyone considering double-handing is to give it a try. You may get hooked just like I did.

2014 YRALIS PHRF and One-Design Championships


PHRF Championships

A Weekend of Great Racing at the 2014 YRA PHRF and One-Design Champs

 

Who says there is no wind on Long Island Sound in August? The YRA 2014 PHRF and One-Design Championships totally put an end to that myth on August 2-3. The winds on Saturday reached to about 18-20 knots, with higher gusts. One Viper turtled, another Viper lost a man overboard (quickly recovered). It was wild and wooly, and a very wet ride. So when the racers came on land after racing, you might think they'd be tired, injured, maybe even quiet. NOT this group. They headed first for the bar and grabbed a table and the war stories began.  Isn't wind wonderful? The party was a happy place. On Sunday the winds diminished somewhat and by around 3 pm Mother Nature started thinking of packing it in. All circles got in enough racers so there was one throw out.
