THIS WEEKEND: MARTIN 242 NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP
This coming weekend, OIYC will be host to 27 Martin 242s arriving to compete on West Sound in the 2019 North American Championships. This is the largest one-design regatta in the Pacific Northwest and has attracted competitors from California, Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo, and inland BC--not to mention the nine local boats on Orcas and in Bellingham. With this many boats on the starting line and a relatively short course, there's bound to be lots of excitement.
OIYC members and the public are invited to come out and watch between 10-4:30 on Saturday and 10-3 on Sunday. Two spectator boats will be available and each is capable of taking approximately 8-10 people out at a time. They will be departing from the OIYC dock approximately every hour and a shoreside coordinator will be available to assist. Parking is available at the club. Racing will be on West Sound.
We highly recommend going out with these spectator boats instead of your own boat. However, should you choose to come out on your own boat, please read the spectator guidelines and a full competitors list. Please respect the no wake zone and endeavor to not cast a wind shadow on the race course or otherwise influence the racing results. You may contact the two spectator boats on VHF channel 68 and monitor racing communications on channel 67. Note that the course illustration depicts the top of the graphic as windward--not necessarily North.
REMINDER: No reciprocal dock space will be available from Thursday, 6/27 through Sunday, 6/30.
