2019 Annual Meeting 7pm on 5 November at IYRS in Newport

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 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:

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 on any of the following

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