Welcome to the
Rappahannock River Yacht Club
Here’s a link to Scott Adams’ gallery of photos taken at Saturday’s Annual Junior Regatta. Photos of various sizes and digital downloads can be purchased at very reasonable prices. He got some great shots in!
Our Junior Regatta was a tremendous success! Despite national-level events going on in other regions which took some of the potential competitors out of the area, we had attendees from RRYC, Premier Sailing, Fishing Bay, Indian Creek, Larchmont, Mill Creek and even Norfolk Yacht Club! A total of 41 boats and 46 sailors competed in the event!
The event started with a delay flag, while our PRO Jerry Latell went out into the river and performed some secret rituals to bring the wind. Apparently they were successful. The wind came and held steady, and blew our young sailors around for the duration of the event.
Special thanks to the many volunteers that stepped up and helped to organize, manage and staff the event. Everywhere I looked, I saw things running smoothly, people who looked like they knew what they were doing.
Here are the results for the event. Stay tuned and check back here for information on photos. We were fortunate to have Scott Adams of Richmond photographing the entire event (http://www.scottadamsrva.com) as well as our own Gary Hooper, who not only shot the event from the water, but also flew a drone over the Green Fleet during their final race. Can’t wait to see the footage from that!
We had a very successful Junior Regatta Planning Meeting on Saturday morning. It’s about the only thing that happened at the club on Saturday, since it rained all day. The volunteers (and volunTOLD) will be receiving a detailed email shortly on that. If you have not yet volunteered, we can still use you.
Also, there will be an amended SI being posted sometime this week. Minor changes in sequencing, I’m told.
The event is shaping up, and hopefully Mother Nature will take a break from throwing these weird storms at us, and conjure us up a gorgeous day with fair winds.
Just so you know, I am currently aware of an email issue specifically regarding email to AOL accounts. It is intermittent, but frustrating, that emails and forwards from RRYC to AOL accounts may or may not work. Here is a transcript of the conversation I had with our hosting provider this morning. It illustrates the issue a little bit, and hopefully it will be resolved soon:
There will be a Junior Regatta planning meeting on Sat June 27 at 9am. If you’re interested in volunteering for the Regatta, you’re welcome to attend. Not mandatory. You’re also encouraged to email Bob at email@example.com. we are especially in need of mark and rescue boats!
Here is the registration link, NOR and SI for the 2015 RRYC Junior Regatta which will be held at the club on Saturday July 25, 2015. Register by July 8 to guarantee a t-shirt at the event. If you’re reading this on social media, the NOR/SI is on the club website.
