Twenty Hundred Club
Welcome to 2021! Registration is open for all Twenty Hundred Club 2021 races. A new format Notice of Race covering all 2021 races is posted on the race page. Similar to last year, the best deal is the Membership + 5 Race Package for $110 which is a $90 savings over races purchased separately. There are two additional race opportunities that are free to members, but you need to register after paying 2021 dues. These include the Bridge Fiasco on 22 May and the Around Aquidneck Challenge which may be sailed anytime between 15 April through 31 December.
Sailing Instructions for the 2021 races are also being updated and expected to be posted in February. Stay tuned for an update on the Spring Shore Party. We expect a different format due to the ongoing pandemic.
Sailing Instructions for the Fall Race Around Prudence Island are posted on the race page at this link. The scratch sheet will be set to final on Friday evening. We have confirmed that two TF10 Foiling Trimarans will be racing this year. The Trimarans have the first start at 1000. Plan to get some great videos as these two sail quickly over the horizon!
The Prince Henry NOR has been updated to correct a typo on the date. 23 August is the correct date. The Prince Henry Sailing Instructions are also posted. This now includes an optional field for wind speed and direction in the race log that will be used to describe race conditions as seen by boats so an article may be created for publishing in various sailing and local periodicals.
Final Block Island race results are also posted.
I just reviewed the weather which has slightly improved (gusts down to 25), but tides and sea state remain constant.
Participation became a dominant factor. We only have 3 spin boats and 1 cruising class boat that are willing to race. It looks like we can get 10 boats for July 25 (equally split between spin/non-spin). I apologize for stepping on the Solo-Twin race.
The NOR, SI and web site will be updated shortly to show the date change.
I appreciate all the input received.
An automatic reminder will be sent one week before where you may update your availability (racing or not), PHRF rating and Spinnaker or Cruising class.
Nick Bowen, Commodore

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 …
