Prince Henry Race Updates for 2018

Prince Henry Race

An updated Sailing Instruction is posted on the Twenty Hundred Club Race Page for the 2018 Prince Henry the Navigator race on Saturday 25 August.  Thanks to the work of a committee lead by Tom Charlton, the SI has been updated as summarized below:

  • Clarifies starting requirements on furling headsails
  • Clarifies requirement on 1st leg to sail
  • Explicitly defines a leg may only be sailed twice – each direction is considered the same leg (e.g. a to b, then b to a constitutes sailing the leg twice)
  • Clarifies which side a mark may be passed on

Competitors are requested to check the preliminary scratch sheet and email shop@twentyhundredclub.org on any of the following

Thye scratch sheet will be posted by 1700 Friday 24 August.

2018 Block Island Results

Block Island results are now posted – Block Island Race Results.  A challenging race out to Block Island with many having a “wet and wild” ride as the storms blew through. Thanks to Rear Commodore Lisa Hammond the BBQ by the Oar was a great success. The weather cooperated nicely for the race back from BI.

Spring Race to Kick Off 2018 Season!

We are just a few days away from our first race for the 2018 season! The NOR and SI are also available for download here:   http://twentyhundredclub.org/race-page/. We have 40 boats currently registered for the Around Aquidneck Island race this Saturday. Please take a moment to review the preliminary scratch sheet. The scratch sheet will be finalized late Friday.

  • Are you in the correct class, or do you want to shift between Spinnaker & Cruising Class?
  • Is your PHRF value correct?
  • Did something come up and you are no longer racing that event?

Entrants should review and send corrections to shop@twentyhundredclub.org

Competitors are requested to check in at the RC before their start Saturday. This was not explicitly mentioned in the SI, although the RC will be flying Lima.

Don’t forget that the Cuttyhunk Race is coming up fast on July 7th with a preliminary scratch sheet posted.

A big thank you to Quantum Sails for their continued support of our racing (and post racing!). I hope to see everyone at Tiverton Yacht Club following racing on Saturday.

Marcus Cochran,
Commodore

Two more AAC attempts yesterday October 20th

There were two more attempts yesterday, but neither boat could get around the course fast enough to unseat Tamanoa from the top spot.  Full results at this link

We have our second AAC rounding

Today, Gregg, Marcus and the Tamanoa team went around the island and set a solid corrected time of 3:43:41, enough to assume the mantle of “Fastest Rounding” so far this Fall.  Seems likely there will be more before the end of the year.  Please note that Gregg reports that the waterway under the Sakonnet bridge is still open, but closure looks to be scheduled for October 23rd.  This could change according to the demolition schedule.  Check with competent authority like DEM, the Tiverton Harbor Master or RIDOT if it might impact your AAC plans.  Full results are at this link.
