When do you have to renew your CBYA membership?

Categories:

As you may be aware, the CBYA introduced a robust accounting system last year in order to help better manage our subscriptions and finances as membership continues to grow each year. We now have around 300 members!

As a result, people can now join the club at any time of the year, and pay their next year’s subscription on the anniversary date of their joining. Whereas, in the past, our membership year ran from January to December.

TOMs “Ladder” Competition – collect points to win prizes!

TOMs “Ladder” Competition – collect points to win prizes!

We are starting a new TOMs program for 2018.  This is  to increase participation, improve skills, encourage everyone to have the opportunity to skipper (not just the approved CBYA skippers), include different levels of experience, and encourage team work. But mainly – this should be FUN! 

Initially we will use white sails only, with a crew of 3-5.  We propose three days each month, two Thursdays and one Saturday over  three months. We can increase  frequency  if requested.

Every crew member will accumulate individual points during each event, and you will sail with different crew each time.  The best score of twelve races will be collected, the rest discarded. So the more you sail, the more low scores you can discard!
