The Club competes in the 5 Clubs Spring and Autumn series of regattas.
Races are split into a Spring series (January to April) and an Autumn series (September to December). All yachts taking part must be minimum length of 9 metres and require a rating certificate. CBYA members’ yachts ratings are sponsored by the Association. To ensure interest in the races, three categories have been created – ORC-A, ORC-B, and ORC – C. These depend on the individual rating of each yacht, which is used for the handicapping system.
These races are run under the ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS 2013-2016), the pre-registration of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation, the Technical Regulations 2010 and annexes, and the Security Regulation ORC ISAF
If you would like to take part you must be a fully paid-up member of the CBYA and have an annually renewable card called a Licencia Federativa which provides insurance cover. These are available from any Club Náutico. See more details at https://cbya.org/licensia-federativa-2016-details/
