2013 Fleet Captain's Welcome Note

Welcome racers to the 2013 racing season! It’s been a very long winter and I’m sure you’re all ready to get out there on the water!
I want to thank all the skippers who attended this year’s Rules and Tactics Night (Skippers Meeting) and who provided much information on their thoughts and input into the 2013 season.
Some changes which everyone should be aware of this year:
We are attempting to have a committee boat sitting on the start line every race to take time. Because of this we are asking everyone wishing to race pay a fee of $20.00 which many of have already. Thank you!
 We will also be attempting to have two start times, pending number of boats racing and course being raced. White Sail division will have a start time of 6:45pm and Spinnaker division will have a start time of 7:00pm. Skippers meeting will be at 6:30pm.
 There have been some changes to the 2013 DYC rules including when to do a penalty. The 2min has been taken out due to safety concerns but “First reasonable opportunity” has been clarified.
The 2013 DYC PHRF ratings will be posted on the website and have been revised post Skippers Meeting. I also would like to thank everyone on their thoughts about how our ratings fare among the fleet.
I would also like to remind everyone to show sportsmanship and respect for another on the water. Sailing should be a fun and relaxing sport. We’re only racing for bragging rights and that cold beer waiting on the dock!
Let the 2013 season begin!
Al Marcino
2013 Fleet Captain
