Typhoon Fall 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 mid-series dinner and end of season dinner which includes Prizegiving.  Members also usually socialize informally after each evening's racing.

Eligibility
All models of Cape Dory Typhoon who have completed the 2022 Typhoon Racing Entry Form (see Button under Race Documents)
If you have already submitted an entry form this year there is no need to submit another for this Fall Series
