Sydney 38 NSW Championships

5 & 6 November 2016

One Design – One Passion

S38 NSW States Bulletin #4

Sailing Instructions now available!

The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, Newport, NSW

We now have the SIs published for the 2016 S38 OD NSW Championships and an Amendment to the NORs.
The key changes are:
  • NOR’s amended to allow Bow Prodders to remain in place for this regatta only (see NOR amendment #1)
  • SIs – Timing of Weigh In and Briefing on 5 November and increased max number of races on Saturday to 4 to allow for potential of bad weather on the Sunday.
If you haven’t entered it is not too late. Entries close 28 October 2016!  Click the NOR//SI/Entry link below. Note Entry Fee to be paid direct to the S38 OD Class Association. See NOR 6.1.

We appear to be heading to eight committed entries – the best we have had for the NSW States for a number of years!

The regatta will be conducted as a Grade 1 event and in strict compliance with the Sydney 38 One Design Class Rules. So now is the time to get any sails you might want to use that haven’t been measured or registered with a “class button” sorted.See link below to contact Jo Beashel, our Class Administrator. Also you need to get your paper work ready. This includes (refer NOR 5.2):

  • Owner Declaration
  • Crew and Sail Declaration (note: requires you submit crew ISAF grade – guide to ISAF Grades on RPAYC Regatta site).
See link below to get copies of these forms.
As the regatta will be held within Pittwater (Saturday) and Broken Bay (Sunday) we are able to have the event run as a Category 7 under Australian Sailing Special Regulations Equipment Compliance plus a few extra things – see NOR 4.3 and the last page of the NOR.

Key Dates
Friday 28th of October ’16 – Entries Close and Crew and Sail Declaration Close Off
Tuesday 1st of November ’16 – Close off date for Late Entries ($500 + Late Entry Charge of $50)
Friday 4th of November ’16 (15:00 to 19:30) – compliance checks, registrations weigh in and welcome drinks (18:30)

Sunday 6th of November ’16 – day two of racing, in Broken Bay (11:00 start), weather permitting, followed by drinks and prize giving

Hopefully, not only will we have some great racing, but a great opportunity for crews to get their boats into OD trim in preparation for the 2017 S38 OD Internationals. The S38 OD Internationals, will be held from 3 to 5 March 2017 as part of the Sydney Harbour Regatta out of Middle Harbour Yacht Club.
