Fall Race competitors: Please note today’s start is delayed two hours. The first warning will occur at 1200.
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:
- 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.
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.

As mentioned in yesterday’s email, members of the board and other interested parties met last night to resolve concerns regarding mark rounding continuity in the Prince Henry race.
