2018 GYA 420 Championship Aug. 4-5

To all GYA Members:

PCYC will host the 2018 GYA 420 Championship Aug. 4-5.  We need your help recruiting sailors for this event. Our goal is to get as many boats as we can out on the water. Registration is set up through Regatta Network and ready for sailors to register. The earlier the better…

According to the GYA Regulations:

  • Entrants (skippers and crew) shall be members of a GYA Club
  • The maximum age of skippers and crew shall not have reached their 19th birthday during the calendar year of competition
  • Each skipper and crew must have reached their twelfth birthday by the date of participation in this event

This year we will offer a trap/spin clinic on Friday, August 3rd. Charles Higgins, Tulane Head Sailing Coach, has graciously agreed to coach this clinic. Assuming 10 boats register for the clinic, the cost will be $40/boat ($20/sailor). We would like to see more than 10 boats and will provide more coaches as needed. Charles has also offered to coach during the event. If anyone is interested, please let me know. The cost will depend on the number of sailors requesting coaching.

So…get your sailor, get a c420, and get his/her crew registered today! The NOR will be up soon. See you in the Pass!
