Looking for a new CBYA Secretary!

Categories:

Our CBYA Secretary, Ann Masson, has advised that she is planning to move to Valencia in the near future, and that she would like to step down as soon as possible, but certainly no later than the 2020 AGM, by which time she would have completed FIVE (5) years as our best-ever Secretary!

So we need to find a suitable replacement who:-

  1. Is a permanent resident.

  2. Has good spoken and written English.

  3. Is well organised.

  4. Is computer literate.

  5. Has a good attention to detail.

  6. Can speak some Spanish (not essential).

It is not an onerous task and the position can be filled by either a male of female CBYA member.

If anyone is interested in helping to further develop the CBYA by taking on this role, please send me an e-mail at info@cbya.org

Hugh Epsom

Chairman

Palma Vela – The crossed fingers didn’t work……

Categories:

Simply out sailed – out classed. But what a fun event. Our team of ‘weekend warriors’ weren’t at all phased to be mixing it with some of the world’s best sailors, but afraid we didn’t do well. Not making any excuses as we made a few mistakes, but with the ORC rating we were placed in Division 1 where our competitors were typically 40′ or more, meant it was tough mixing it with them over such short courses.

Why Not Register as an ISAF Sailor?

Categories:

Why Not Register as an ISAF Sailor?

The ISAF Sailor Classification Code exists as a service to provide events and classes with an international system of classification for sailors.

You can easily register HERE on the World Sailing website and then, once you are registered, you can apply for the ISAF Sailor Classification Code which documents your sailing cruising and racing qualifications and experience. This can then be accessed by yacht owners, and sailing event organisers, who are looking for racing and/or cruising crew.
