Typhoon Spring Series

Event Information

Event Description
All Cape Dory Typhoon owners and crew are welcome to come and compete in this six week series of Wednesday evening races. All Typhoon models (weekender, daysailor, open) compete as one class, without spinnakers, in a series of short races comprising Olympic triangles and windward/leeward legs at the discretion of the PRO.  We aim to have 3 races per evening.
The series will be scored in accordance with Section 9 of the RRYC Ty Fleet Rules.   The Series is also highly sociable with a Kick-off Evening with cocktails and a review of the Rules of Racing, a mid-series dinner and end of season dinner which includes Prizegiving.  Members also usually socialize informally after each evening's racing.
Only one registration is required for both the "Spring & Fall" Series.
