5 Clubs Regatta

First TOMs Class Racing – 5 Clubs Regatta Calpe – 16th Nov 2019

Categories:

The CBYA has entered TOM28 yachts into the 5 Clubs Regatta at Calpe on numerous occasions in the past, but due to the unfavourable TOM28 ORC rating, we have to race in the ORC-B class, and have never been able to compete against the bigger yachts. The best results have always been achieved in very light winds conditions with flat seas – we once managed to finish 5th!

Altea 5 Clubs – Sunday 20th October

The Altea 5 Clubs was a regatta of two halves for TrickyD. A downwind run to the Calpe fish farm, with TrickyD and her crew enjoying the 20 knot plus winds.

After rounding the fish farm, and sailing close-hauled on our homeward leg, we were hit by 35 knots of wind gusting to 45 knots.  After reefing down, we decided to retire.

Crewing a TOM in the 5 Clubs Regatta Calpe on Sunday 19 May

Categories:

The Rumbo Solidario and 5 Clubs Regatta took place at the Real Club Náutico Calpe (RCNC) on Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 May 2019.

Due to the shortage of CBYA member-owned yachts, and CBYA crew positions, we again entered a TOM 28 in the 5 Clubs Regatta on the Sunday. The crew comprised Paul Smithard, Andy Symons, Mike Cross and “yours truly” on the helm.

The TOM 28 rating puts us in ORC-B, which means that we have to sail the longer 16 km course down to the Albir fish-farm, back up to Calpe bay, then out to sea before rounding the final mark and returning to the finish line.

Jim Mack crewed on another TOM 28 entered by Angie Roper for RCNC. We decided that, since our rating was unlikely to allow us to get a podium result, we would concentrate on racing Angie and Jim!
