North Sails Y88 Owners Champs

North Sails Y88 Owners Champs
17th November 2018

Venue: Bucklands Beach Yacht Club

The Owners Champs is a chance for the non pro skippers to pit themselves and crew against each other at the start of the summer season.

The Y88 event and fleet sponsor North Sails are continuing to build on the coaching side and will offering up their team to crew on boats, provide on the water coaching and post race debrief accompanied by drone footage (weather permitting)

Always well run by the BBYC with a fleet of 10-15 boats jousting in the waters surrounding Northern leading.

Based on feedback from the time poor in 2017 we are continuing with a one day regatta. We are modifying this year by asking crews to plan for Saturday but reserve Sunday as a weather reserve day.

No matter whether we race Saturday or Sunday you can bet there will be a full on gathering at club BBYC on Saturday night.

Overnight guests are welcome to berth in the marina for free Fri, Sat and Sunday night.

We will also have a Restricted Division for those sailors who wish to be a part of the event but perhaps enjoy a lower octane race track. This event within event is also a great step into the Young 88 racing fleet.

Lack of crew a problem? No worries we help to source able bodies of all shapes and sizes. Go to the links on the event web page below to advertise for crew or to check out crew available.

So dust off the good racing sails, pull the crew out of winter retirement, and get the barnacles scrubbed off, its time to go racing!
