Mahone Bay Opener!
JUNE 24, 13:30 @CYC
If you have a sailboat, you’re invited to race!
The Chester Yacht Club is kicking the doors open for a One Day Racing Event to encourage sailors curious about racing — or folks who used to race and are thinking about coming out to uncoil the main sheet and call the crew. You will be met with a hearty welcome from our seasoned CYC racers and are guaranteed some fun and friendly competition.
Do I need to be a member of CYC or any other Yacht Club?
- No, you can enter this one-day event as long as you complete registration, upload your insurance documents and PHRF certificate — then digitally sign the Disclaimer of Liability.
- If you do not have a valid Sail Nova Scotia handicap, you can obtain one by filling out and submitting this online form.
- If you have a Sail Nova Scotia handicap, you must review it to ensure all the information it is based on is accurate and current.
- If the information needs to be updated, you can do so here.
- Register here: Free For All
Why is CYC doing this?
- We want to encourage growth in the racing fleet in the Mahone Bay area. We understand that Chester Race Week may be too big of a commitment for some racers and we wanted to lower the barrier to participating in handicap racing.
What will the racing be like?
- Final details are still in progress. Plans are to have A Fleet, B Fleet, and White Sails starts on a distance course. Racing will be approximately 2.5 hours.
Is there a fee?
- Nope! The best things in life are free!
