MYC to Begin Racing - Rules Modified for COVID-19

Diane Kampf (admin) 0 1813

As you may know, the MYC Board has been working on adjustments to our racing program to comply with the Governor's Reopening Massachusetts plan. We are now ready to start racing this Sunday, May 31st at 1:30pm. Gary Werden has graciously volunteered to serve as PRO during this transition period and the Sailing Instructions will be modified based on the attached addendum.


Some highlights:

- All races will be pursuit races.

- Safety boat coverage will be limited. Racers who are uncomfortable with the conditions and/or the rescue assistance capacity SHOULD NOT RACE. Remember RRS Rule 4.  

- The PRO, in consultation with the RC Chair or a Board Member, will determine whether conditions are suitable for racing based on the available rescue capacity.

- The RRS definition of Keep Clear is amended to: A boat keeps clear of a right-of-way boat when she maintains six feet between boats.

- All racers must wear PFDs on the water at all times and carry a whistle.  

Please continue to wear a mask (or a neck gaiter, buff, or other suitable device to cover your mouth and nose) in areas on shore and on the docks.  

We hope to see you on the water.

The Club is starting to reopen more as the Governor announces the re-opening phases for Massachusetts. We are still not holding club sponsored activities, but the docks are in, the moorings are in, the restrooms are open and the place is almost all cleaned up. We still need people to volunteer to do some painting and other tasks to spruce up the buildings,  The club is available for limited personal use and we are working on getting racing started with modified rules.

We will continue to monitor the CDC and Governor Baker's recommendation and guidelines and will make a decision on a new date as soon as we an.  Hope to see you on the water soon!

The Gate is Repaired

You may recall that near the end of last year, a truck knocked down the post at the end of our gate. Well. lo and behold. we were able to get it not only fixed, but widened! It would be easier now for us to get in and out with a trailer attached to the car and for the trucks to get in and out without hitting the post. Thanks Rear Commodore Don Williams for finding a person who would come and make quick work of the repair.
