THE YRA WELCOMES YOU TO THE 2011 RACING SEASON

For 2011, the YRA Racing Season consists of three weekend regattas, a six race day series, two ocean circuits and a wooden boat series. HDA and ODCA will participate in the six race day series, and the Party Circuit series has the three weekend regattas. OYRA has its regular full season, along with a new ‘Daylight Series’, which consists of four shorter ocean races that start later and end earlier. The woodies have their traditional Bay races for Bears, Birds, Folkboats, IODs and Knarrs. You can find out more information on the different racing series right here in this publication and on the YRA website at www.yra.org. We encourage everyone to get a YRA membership and sign up to race. Your membership support and participation in the YRA helps us do everything we do. And we do a lot! Besides offering great racing, remember that the YRA administers the local PHRF. More than 700 boats received certificates in 2010 through the YRA, which makes us one of the most active sailing areas in the country. We also serve as the local liaison to the U.S. Coast Guard, handle the coordinating and processing of more than 850 marine events, maintain racing buoys, and host the US Sailing Area G Appeals Committee, just to name a few of the things that keep us busy. In all we do, the YRA acts as an advocate for sailing on the Bay. As always, we want to thank the YRA member Yacht Clubs and their Race Committees who are sponsoring this year’s YRA races. We couldn’t do it without you and your support. We know each YRA skipper and crew thanks you as well. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with all the latest YRA news. You can find us on Twitter at YRAofSFBay and on Facebook at the YRA of SF Bay page! Get those entries in, get your boats and crews prepared, and get out to the start line for every race you’re scheduled to sail. Fair winds to all, Gerry Brown, YRA Chair Laura Paul-Muñoz, YRA Executive Director Yacht Racing Association of San Francisco Bay 1070 Marina Village Pkwy., #202-G Alameda, CA 94501 Phone (415) 771-9500 • Fax (415) 276-2378 info@yra.org • www.yra.org Gerry Brown Page 6 •

CREW LIST

PETER LYONS/WWW.LYONSIMAGING.COM

Are you having trouble finding crew? Are you having trouble finding rides? Did you know that the Latitude 38 Crew List can help you accomplish both? Our Crew List has been a staple for Bay Area sailors for the past three decades, and is an extremely effective way to find crew and rides. Technological advances have meant that instead of coming out twice a year in issues of Latitude 38, the Crew List is available all the time, online, for free at www.latitude38.com. Click on the ‘Crew List & Party’ menu item, and you’ll have instant access to hundreds of skippers looking for crew or hundreds of crew looking for rides. You can sign up for one or both lists. You’ll find specifics on our Crew List Parties in the same place. The parties are tailor made for people who value face-to-face introductions to potential skippers or crew in a neutral location. And besides, they’re a lot of fun! So, if you find yourself in need of a new ride or new crew in 2011, you know where to go: www.latitude38.com. Save the dates! Spring Crew List Party: Wednesday, March 9, 6-9 p.m., Golden Gate YC, San Francisco Mexico-Only Crew List Party: Wednesday, September 7, 6-9 p.m., Encinal YC, Alameda

It’s not written in any rule book, but, since sailboat racing is a recreational sport, we think the number one rule should be to have fun. Beyond that, some basic guidelines help prevent collisions and ensure that racing is both fun and fair. Below is an outline of the ten basic rules which cover most racing situations. For completeness and total accuracy, refer to Racing Rules of Sailing 2009-2012, published by US Sailing. See www.ussailing.org/rules for details. 1. If boats are on the same tack, and overlapped, the windward boat must keep clear of the boat to leeward. 2. Port tack keep clear of starboard tack. 3. If boats are on the same tack, a boat clear astern must keep clear of a boat clear ahead. 4. When tacking or jibing, keep clear of boats on a tack. 5. Avoid collisions. If you have the right of way and hit the other boat, causing serious damage, you both will be penalized. 6. Don’t obstruct. Don’t make it hard for the ‘keep clear’ boat to do so. (No hunting allowed.) 7. Sail the course prescribed. You have to round the marks in the directions specified in the sailing instructions and can’t touch a mark. 8. Proper Course (same tack, within two hull lengths). If the leeward boat came from astern, leeward boat shall not sail above its own proper course during the overlap. (Remember that windward boat still has to keep clear, even if windward is forced above what it believes is windward’s proper course.) 9. Give room at marks and obstructions to yachts overlapped on the inside, except: a. When the overlap did not exist before the lead boat reaches the three-boatlength zone. b. To ‘bargers’ at the start except to avoid collision (then protest).

10. Acknowledge your fouls and protest those who don’t. A free rule book comes with US Sailing membership. See www.ussailing.org. Page 42 •

MINIMUM EQUIPMENT LIST The following equipment shall be required for all yachts racing in YRA events. 1. USCG-approved life jackets for each member of the crew. If the ‘Y’ flag is displayed, USCGapproved life jackets shall be worn while racing. 2. One horseshoe life ring or 18-inch diameter USCG-approved ring buoy. 3. USCG-approved (or equivalent) fire extinguisher as required by USCG rules, readily accessible. 4. One manually-operated bilge pump. 5. One suitable anchor and cable. 6. Fog horn. 7. Marine compass. 8. Suitable charts for piloting. Please be aware that boats must comply with the ISAF Offshore Special Regulations, including OYRA Prescriptions, for Category 2 Monohulls (the OYRA MEL) to participate in YRA Ocean Races. Sailors entering the OYRA Season, or any individual OYRA Race, must submit a Boat/Crew Information and Statement of Compliance Sheet by 5:00 p.m. the Thursday before each ocean race. You can download the Boat/Crew Information and Statement of Compliance Sheet from the YRA website at www.yra.org/OYRA/ocean_safety.html. Contestants are reminded that conditions on San Francisco Bay are quite unpredictable, and winds in excess of 30 knots are not uncommon. The US Sailing rules state: “It shall be the sole responsibility of each yacht to decide whether or not to start or continue the race.” We would further remind all sailors that, as provided in US Sailing rules: “Every yacht shall render all possible assistance to any vessel or person in peril, when in a position to do so.” We will trust that all contestants will do everything in their power to make our sport of yacht racing as safe as it has been in the past.

Note that 406 EPIRBs are required equipment on OYRA races, SSS ocean races, and some other ocean races!

Of all the safety equipment on your boat, your VHF radio is probably the most effective and essential. Because VHF uses common frequencies, it’s important to remember a few rules of marine radio etiquette: • Radio checks, which should be performed at least every time you leave your slip, should always be conducted on channel 9, never on channel 16. • Before hailing another station on channel 16, listen for at least one minute before keying your mic, so as not to “step” on radio traffic that’s already underway. • Speak slowly and pause for at least a minute between hailing attempts. • Always start on the “low” power setting. • Don’t use the radio if you have nonemergency traffic that can be accomplished with a mobile phone.

We sometimes forget certain basic steps in our pre-race preparations, items that should be double-checked before heading out on the race course. It’s a bummer to start with the wrong division, sail a great race around the wrong mark, stray into a restricted area, or get the time of the current change wrong. Take a few minutes before each race to look at this list and make sure you’ve checked each item for your next race!

2011 YRA PARTY CIRCUIT Three great race weekends with a division for EVERYONE!

Starting this year, the three weekend races in the Party Circuit Series are stand-alone Regattas, with Division Champions awarded for each regatta, rather than an overall Series Champion. This change allows us to adjust the fleet breakdowns for each regatta, so that we can maximize the competition. For Vallejo especially, this means that we will no longer have to split up similar boats into different fleets because one boat signed up for the series and another boat didn’t. There will be six divisions for each regatta: PHRF, Sportboat, One Design, Multihull, Shorthanded and Non-Spinnaker. We’ll then divide up each division into as many fleets as are needed to create good racing. The racing format is staying the same, since we believe we shouldn’t fix what isn’t broken. Saturday’s race will always feature a long distance race. There will be a party at the hosting Yacht Club Saturday night, and Sunday will feature a shorter race that gets everyone home in time for dinner. You still get all three Regattas for only $150, plus you can race in the Summer Sailstice regatta for only $5 more, a total savings of more than $100. It’s the best racing value on the Bay. You can also sign up for the YRA Spring/Summer Series (HDA and ODCA) and add the PC Series for a grand total of only $180 – that gives you 12 race days at $15 a race. We’re pretty sure that’s hard to beat! The dates for the 2011 YRA Party Circuit are: • April 30 – The Great Vallejo Race 1, Party Saturday night at the Vallejo Yacht Club. • May 1 – The Great Vallejo Race 2. • June 18 – The YRA Spring 3/Summer Sailstice (bonus regatta, small additional fee required). • July 23 – The YRA 2nd Half Opener, Party Saturday night at the Encinal Yacht Club. • July 24 – The YRA 2nd Half Opener, Escape to/from Alcatraz Race. • September 24 – The YRA Season Closer, Party Saturday night at the Corinthian Yacht Club. • September 25 – The YRA Season Closer, The Crazy 8 Race.

YACHTING YOUTH

SUMMER SAILING PROGRAM Check out our updated and improved program!

Looking for a new way to entertain your kids this year? Look no further than the Bay Area’s dozens of junior sailing programs. Many offer scholarships, and with rare exception, you don’t need to have your own boat. Unless noted below, club membership is not necessary. High school sailing for students in grades 9-12 takes place around Northern California in the Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association. If your high school doesn’t have a team – or enough students to field a team – don’t fret. Most programs allow students from several schools to form a single team.

SAN FRANCISCO BAY These current charts show direction and speed of the tidal current for each hour of current at the San Francisco Bay entrance. The charts depict the flow of tidal currents under normal weather conditions. Strong winds and freshets, however, bring about non-tidal currents which may modify considerably the speeds and directions shown in the charts. USE OF CHARTS The chart to be used for any specific time is determined by obtaining the difference between the desired time and the time of the nearest Maximum Flood or Maximum Ebb for the Golden Gate. The chart with the title that agrees most nearly with this difference is the one to be used. The numbers before or after the arrows indicate the 'tropic speed' of the current in knots. To deter mine the actual speed of the current for a particular day and hour, this tropic speed is multiplied by the factor given in the table to the right, 'Factors for Correcting Speeds'. To find the correct 'predicted speed' as listed in the table, see 'Weekend Currents' on pages 98 (JanuaryJune) and 104 (July-December). The charts on this page and those that follow are from the National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
