Back by popular demand, we will be holding the 2nd Annual PRSA Rookie Regatta this coming Sunday! This one-day regatta has two purposes:
- To encourage skippers and crews to bring new people on board, hopefully sparking an interest in racing and in sailing with PRSA; and
- To encourage PRSA crews to take a turn at the helm to learn about driving, build team rapport on their boats, and perhaps even spark an interest in becoming a full time owner and driver!
The racing on May 10 will be scored separately from the PRSA Spring Series. The scores will not count towards a boat’s Spring Series scoring. Instead, we will recognize all of the new crew and skippers at the regatta and provide a few racing awards for each class based on the day’s results. For this regatta, a high-point scoring system will be used. There will be point bonuses for bringing new sailors aboard, for having crew instead of the regular skipper drive, and more.
Please review the Sailing Instructions for the “Rookie Regatta” (below) and work on your boat’s lineup for the day. Each boat should also fill out a Bonus Sheet and turn it in to the scorers after the racing. Hard copies of these forms will be available Sunday as well.
We encourage you to invite new people out to sail with you, or to turn the helm over to one of your regular crew! The racing will be followed by the standard post-race BYO BBQ, so remember to bring a little something for the grill and some beverages as well.
