Results for this past weekend’s Cuttyhunk race are now posted here: Cuttyhunk Race Results Great weather and an excellent turnout this year! Next event is Block Island in four weekends!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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/

- Membership & Race Entry done online via the Shop (no change)
- Scratch Sheet automatically populated online using Shop orders (introduced in 2018)
- Automatic personalized email reminder sent 7 days before a race. The email contains a link directing the Skipper to a page where
- Race participation is confirmed, or withdraw from race
- Option to change Class (Spinnaker/Cruising)
- Option to update PHRF value
- Scratch sheet set to final the day before the race , locking it from further changes
- New scoring system built into website publishes finish results in near real time through the use of a phone on the finish boat – final results will be posted shortly after the committee boat docks and finish times are verified
- Race Results include additional columns for time behind the previous boat finishing and time behind the first boat finished. An option is provided to display results without the Twenty Hundred Club penalty.
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.

Seems likely there will be more before the end of the year. Please note that Gregg reports that the waterway under the Sakonnet bridge …
