* The first EC12 regatta was a great success with 11 sailors participating in a great day of racing. Top three finisher were 1st place : Bruce Walton 2nd place: Don Ouimette 3rd place: Al Dion Click below for the score sheet and results EC12 July 2017 Scores Some Drone Pics (click to enlarge...)
Each race day will be governed by the current (2017-2020) Racing Rules of Sailing with Appendix E, the AMYA By-Laws, and the EC12 class rules. Scoring will be with the low point system. If we have greater than 14-15 sailors, the Odd/Even racing system may be used.
It would be very helpful if you could send an email within a week or so prior to the race with your sail numbers to let us know you are coming to help us anticipate the numbers and setup score sheets.
Both venues have good rest rooms and Bethany has a pavilion and picnic tables.
Both venues do not have docks so you need to wade into the water to launch your boat. Most of us use water shoes during the warm months and boots in the cooler weather. We would like to pack in as much race time as we can in the day, so the finish times proposed below can be adjusted base on what the longer distance travelers would need to get home.
