This year we are introducing the Sailpast Cup Race at 12pm, open to all KYC fleets, where a winner will be scored by handicap.
The KYC fleet will assemble at 11:00 am for the Skippers’ meeting, held by the Commodore’s vessel.
Detailed instructions for the Sailpast course and order of the fleet will be given at the Skippers’ Meeting. If you are not taking past in the 'Sailpast Cup' Race but plan to sailpast please speak with the manager when you arrive.
Every effort will be made to sail in line-ahead formation, on a beam reach, with the order of the fleet arranged by faster vessels being grouped ahead of slower vessels.
Sailors may salute the Commodore’s vessel by luffing their jibs for five seconds, then sheeting in and clearing the area for the following boat.
Paddlers may salute by hand or with a nod.
When all boats have saluted and the Commodore’s vessel has weighed anchor, the fleet will return to the KYC dock, to enjoy tea and biscuits and an assortment of desserts and snacks.
Note that there will be a ebb tide for the event, with an 5 foot low tide at 5:00 pm at Point Atkinson.
There is a marathon taking place on the same day, and Cornwall Ave will be closed, please adjust your travel and parking plans accordingly.
