« on: November 30, 2017, 01:47:02 PM »
Our first race of 2018 will be in 2017--the RYC midwinters December 3rd race.   The rules and races for that qualify are below.   Lots of opportunities to race throughout the year.  Please join us.

2018 Season Championship—Matt Boroughf Trophy
Northern California Ultimate 20 Fleet

The Season Championship is to recognize those skippers, crew, and boats that consistently participate in races held in Northern California or other races recognized for promoting and supporting the Ultimate 20 class in the region.   The Matt Boroughf Trophy for the Season Championship will reward those skippers who score the best in races where two or more U20s under a High Score Averaged Scoring System.   This system places more emphasis on those races with a higher number of participants; however, any race with two or more boats will be scored.   

The following races will be considered as part of the series:

•   RYC Midwinters (each race day will be scored separately)
•   Three Bridge Fiasco (SSS)
•   Big Daddy (RYC)
•   San Diego NOODS
•   Don Won Regatta (TYC)
•   Around the Rocks (SSS)

Other races may be added by notification to the Fleet Captain that two or more Northern California boats are registered to participate and the race is held on the west coast.  This year’s North Americans held at Lake Norman and are not part of the 2018 Season Championship.

2.   Owners must be registered as 2018 U20 Class Members.

5.   Owners that sail in at least three events will be considered eligible.
6.   To qualify for the season championship trophy, an owner must sail in at least eight events either from the list above or as added during
         the season.  If an event is canceled after boats are registered, the number of events required for qualification will be reduced.
7.   Boats will be only scored against other eligible boats during the season.
8.   The Championships will be determined by using the High Point Averaged Scoring System (see below).
9.   A change in the rules may be made during the year by unanimous consent by the boats in the series.   
10.   If there is a tie, the tie will be broken by the better scoring boat at the events where the two boats were directly competing.

Big Daddy Regatta at RYC is next up on March 10-11.   Mark racing on Saturday and pursuit race on Sunday around the islands.  RYC fleet is all in so come up or down and enjoy some great "winter" sailing.   If you need assistance in any way, let us know.

Four U 20s raced in the mark races on Saturday at RYC Big Daddy Regatta.  Winds were light but three races got off.  Team Udecide had the right mojo and scored bullets in all races, followed by Team Uhoo! and then Uagain.   

Sunday's pursuit race was delayed by dense fog for two hours.  Ship traffic was sounding off horns all around the fleet.  Once the fog cleared there was a great spinnaker run to Alcatraz with two U20s in the lead and then the wind died and the rest of the race was a battle with the currents.  No boats finished by the time limit, though Team Breakaway sailed the entire course arriving to cheers at the club house at 1830.
