As Autumn gets into gear and the less hardy look to laying up their boats for another winter the Cruisers and Racers have the Cruiser Class Autumn Series as a final hurrah before the season end.
This year’s series is going to be different to previous years with a mixture of longer ands shorter races spread over 6 weeks starting on Sunday 24th October, The first two races (24th and 31st October) will be longer, starting at 09:30 with a time limit of 15:30 so make sure you allow for being on the water for most of the day. In a break from previous years these two races will start from the MYC Club line with courses from the 2021 MYC Cruiser Class Course Sheet.
November’s races (7th, 14th, 21st & 28th) will be shorter in-river events starting at 09:30 and finishing from a Committee Boat.
No matter what sort of Cruising or Racing Yacht you sail there is a class for you to enjoy racing as long as your boat complies with ORC Cat 4 requirements and the MYC Minimum Equipment Level. We intend to run 3 classes: Class 1 for boats with a 2021 IRC Rating, Class 2 for the less serious racers using the RYA NHC handicap system and Class 3 for the more cruising boats with no spinnakers also using RYA NHC Handicaps.
Visitors can be allocated a free mooring for the duration of the series and should contact the MYC Office for more information
