2017 Double Nickel Regatta Information and Registration Links

"A SAYRA Junior Championship Series Qualifying Event"

Hobcaw YC will host a free Youth Practice on Friday afternoon 1 - 4 PM before the HYC Open regatta.  There will be a short rules discussion of the Racing Rules of Sailing Part 2.  This section addresses when boats meet and the obligation of each boat with respect to the other boat.  Afterward the boats will proceed to the water for practice starts, mark rounding and coaching.  This is an opportunity to sail in the venue before the racing starts on Saturday.  This is a salt water river venue for the SAYRA Youth Championship.  You will get a chance to see and experience the current that will be present during this event.

REGATTA NOTE for the HOBCAW MEMBERSHIP:  As in all years past, the club docks for Regatta Weekend are reserved for the numerous race committee boats it requires to run the regatta. Additionally, our boatyard will be closed Regatta Weekend beginning on Friday, July7th until Sunday night, July 9th.  If you are NOT a volunteer boat for the regatta, please DO NOT TIE YOUR BOAT TO THE DOCK for anything other than loading or unloading of passengers. Once a year, we ask your consideration not to launch and retrieve your motorboat at the club if you were not volunteering as a race committee boat and crew. Even if all the boats are out and the ramp is unused, the parking can’t take the volume of normal member use with trailers.

Just a quick reminder to all the members who have boat parking slips at the club boatyard and grassy knoll area. Our annual regatta is in July, and with limited space on the grounds for parking on July 7,8 and 9th we will once again ask for your support by moving your boat and trailers.

If you are not directly involved with the regatta as a chase boat / committee boat or a competitor in the regatta, We are asking, if at all possible, to please remove your boat & trailer from the grounds. From Thursday to Sunday (they can return on Monday.)This will free up some much needed room for parking over the weekend. We appreciate your help.

Thanks so much,

Bobby Matthews
Vice Commodore and Regatta Chairman
