YPRCC Spring Regatta

yprccWith real Virginia Spring weather finally arriving just in time for our Spring Regatta it is an excellent time to start your racing season if haven’t yet.  We will have PHRF Spinnaker,  PHRF Non-Spinnaker and Typhoon classes.  Boats without valid PHRF rating certificates are welcome and will have a rating assigned by the Fleet Captain.  The Typhoons will be joining the regatta for the first time fresh off their National Championship.  PRO Gary Hooper has assembled an excellent Race Committee team which hopefully includes a seasoned weather management professional (a competent weather manager would obtain sunny,  low humidity, 75 degree temperatures with 10-12 knt winds from the SE.)   We have a social planned for after racing on the RRYC porch with drinks, munchies and awards.    NOR, SIs and Entry form are below.
