Thanks to all for a fun day and Tiverton YC for RC and BBQ support!
The Twenty Hundred Club will hold its 2019 annual business meeting at IYRS, 449 Thames Street, Newport on Tuesday 5 November at 7pm. Pizza and refreshments will be served. Attendees are kindly requested to RSVP by clicking the following link email@example.com to open a pre-formatted message with your email reply. Your participation is a great help to the board and to the quality of our racing and social program — hope to see you there!
We can use their parking lot (we will have passes to give out) and the meeting will be held in the John Mecray Aquidneck Mill Building on the fourth floor in the Edward W. Kane and James Gubelmann IYRS Maritime Library. We thought this would be a perfect location for such a historic sailing club since this is the only library of its kind in Rhode Island, its collection includes marine-related books, periodicals, historic yachting trophies, nautical artwork, and other artifacts related to Newport’s and New England’s maritime heritage. More information about the IYRS campus can be found here: https://www.iyrs.edu/about/
The 2019 Season is summarized with the following results links:
The new system should improve scratch sheet accuracy and provide race results in a more timely manner. The 2018 Block Island race results are scored using the new system and may be viewed at this link.
We’ve prepared an update to our race summary document. This PDF is suitable to forward around to fellow racers and friends who might be considering joining the club and our racing program. We really do offer a wonderfully unique and interesting season of races and a quick read will reaffirm that! Thanks for your continuing support.

Next Saturday, June 27th, commences the Twenty Hundred Club racing season with the Around Aquidneck Island regatta. Held in partnership with Tiverton Yacht Club, this race is an almost complete circumnavigation of Aquidneck Island, beginning at Hog Island, racing out in the sound, up the Sakonnet and finishing just short of the Tiverton Boat Basin. The day wraps up with an award ceremony and BBQ at TYC, along with the annual hors d’oeuvres contest (prizes!). Berthing is available for competitors.
The NOR and SI are available for download here: http://twentyhundredclub.org/race-page/
Competitors are requested to check in at the RC boat before their start Saturday.

Now is the time to register for this year’s Twenty Hundred Club racing! We are hosting six unique events in the bay this season. First is the Around Aquidneck Race, co-sponsored with Tiverton YC, on June 27th. The course runs from Hog Island south and around Aquidneck, up the Sakonnet with a beautiful finish off of Tiverton. Postrace is hosted by TYC. After that we are bringing back a perennial favorite after a hiatus of a few years — the Cuttyhunk Race. Scheduled for July 11th, the course is from Rose Island to Cuttyhunk. August has two events on the calendar – the Block Island Race and the Prince Henry Race. The Block Island race weekend this year is August 8-10. The outbound leg runs on the 8th, from Rose Island to New Harbor entrance; Sunday is a layday and the return race is the 10th going from New Harbor back to Rose Island. Prince Henry runs August 29th. This unique navigation race has no peer in the region, a true test of both sailing fast and using the environment and your navigation skills to rack up the most corrected miles in a specified time. Multiple start points in the bay ease the logistics challenge with all competitors finishing at Wickford Harbor. The Fall Race Around Prudence, September 19th, wraps up the scheduled races, starting and finishing off of Pine Hill Point. A postrace event is in the works. Running throughout the year is the Around Aquidneck Challenge. Back in its second year, this event is continuing to gain interest. Competitors circumnavigate Aquidneck Island in the fastest corrected time. You select the date and time of your attempt, start/finish point and even the direction of rounding. Tiverton Boat Basin is a no-race zone, allowing either a pause for food and refreshments or a more strategic break for different winds and currents. Boats may extend this pause for up to 24 hours. As unique as the Prince Henry Race, the Around Aquidneck Challenge requires a broad range of skills to log a competitive time.
All of this comes still comes as a great package deal for $110. Use this link to obtain membership and register for the races: https://twentyhundredclub.org/shop/dues-membership-swag/31-2015-membership-race-package.html Individual races and membership remain available in the store as well.
All NORs and SIs are available here http://twentyhundredclub.org/race-page/
Lastly, the Around Aquidneck Race with TYC is just a few weeks away. If you are planning on racing it, please note we advanced the start time slightly to help produce favorable currents both down the bay and up to Tiverton. Refer to the SI for more details. And don’t forget the hors d’oeuvres contest. Be sure to bring something to share for everyone while downing your favorite Dark and Stormy, Margarita, or Painkiller. Your entry doesn’t have to be fancy but there will be prizes!
Thanks and see you on the water.

As I looked out across the frozen Sakonnet River this morning I thought about the fact that in four short months we will be sailing in the first Twenty Hundred Club event of the season. Tiverton Yacht Club has once again stepped up to the plate and will be hosting the annual Twenty Hundred Club Around Aquidneck Island Race. This race will be held on June 27th and will be followed by a social event at the Tiverton Yacht Club. The traditional hors d’oeuvres contest will be held. BBQ and refreshments will be served.
This summer the Cuttyhunk Race returns. On July 11 after a three year absence the Twenty Hundred Club will reestablish the Cuttyhunk Race. Starting in Newport this race was always a favorite. The Block Island Race will be held August 8-10 followed by the Prince Henry Race on August 29. The final race of the season will be Fall Race around Prudence Island on September 19. This year the Fall Race will be hosted by Quonset Davisville Navy Yacht Club and will also be followed by a social event. Further details will be forthcoming.
The Twenty Hundred Spring Shore Party will be held on April 11 at the Bristol Yacht Club. After the fantastic meal that once again will be provided by Daves Marketplace we will proceed with nominations and elections of your executive board. We will end the evening with the presentation of awards from the 2014 season. Please log into the Twenty Hundred Club website to purchase tickets prior to April 1.
The annual business meeting of the Twenty Hundred Club was held in December. At this meeting a membership dues increase of $20 was proposed and implemented for the 2015 season. This increase in dues was due to the increased cost of insurance for the club. With the return of the Cuttyhunk Race and the continuation of the Around Aquidneck Challenge, club membership continues to be a bargain. In addition to our 5 Primary races we will continue to post results from the Aquidneck Island Challenge as they are reported. For those of you not familiar with the Aquidneck Island Challenge, last season we began posting Aquidneck Island circumnavigation times. This challenge can be completed at a time of your choosing and as often as you like. Unlike the Around Jamestown Record Race there is no per attempt fee and entry is included with your Twenty Hundred Club membership.
Lastly, this season we will be experimenting with the use of RaceQs. Participants are encouraged to use Race Qs at www.raceqs.com to self-report your race. A free account for your boat is required. A free iOS or Android app is required. RaceQs will be available to upload data and view a participant replay for each race.
I look forward to seeing all of you at the Spring Shore Party.
