Racing at CYC — Getting Started

CYC offers Class and Handicap racing from June to October. Races are open to keelboats helmed by CYC members. Membership application forms can be found here.

1. PHRF-NS Handicap

Boats racing in handicap fleets must have a current PHRF-NS handicap from Sail Nova Scotia.

  1. If you do not have a valid Sail NS handicap you can obtain one by filling out and submitting this online form.
  2. If you have a Sail NS handicap you must review it and ensure all the information on which it is based is accurate and up to date. You can search for your boat by name here.
  3. If the information needs to be updated you can do so here.
2. Registration Form and Proof of Insurance

Boat owners must submit a registration form and proof of $1M liability insurance to CYC before racing.

These can be emailed to cycscoring@gmail.com or dropped off at the bar.

3. Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions.

Review the NOR and SI for information on starting, finishing, courses, fleet splits, and other club rules and procedures.

Keep an eye on the Unofficial Notice Board for updates and special courses.
