THE YRA WELCOMES YOU TO THE 2014 RACING SEASON Welcome to the YRA’s 2014 Racing Season! As always, we’ve got racing opportunities for everyone, whether you sail a multihull, classic woody or one design boat, sail on the ocean or under PHRF in the Bay. For 2014, the YRA Racing Season offers four different racing options: • Party Circuit: includes our three marquee weekend regattas as well as the Westpoint Regatta. • YRA Series: a four-day series with one race day each month starting in May and running through September. • OYRA: nine fully crewed ocean races this year, and a division for shorthanded crews. • Wooden Boat Series: a full schedule of in-the-Bay racing for Bears, Birds, IODs, Folkboats and Knarrs. You can find information on the different racing series in this publication and on the YRA website at www.yra.org. The Racer Socials that we started in 2013 will continue. We’re planning on at least three this year with potential topics ranging from a USCG view of the Bay (and racers) to Bay Currents to Rigging. If you have a topic you think we should cover, please let us know. We encourage everyone to get a YRA membership and sign up to race. Your membership support and participation in the YRA goes to help us do everything we do. And we do a lot: ROXANNE FAIRBAIRN / WWW.roxshots.smugmug.com

• Administer the local PHRF database; more than 700 certificates were issued in 2013. • Coordinate with the U.S. Coast Guard to process event permits – more than 900 permits in 2013. • Maintain racing buoys in the Bay. • Host the US Sailing Area G Appeals Committee. • Advocate for sailing and racing in the Bay Area. • Offer great racing.

As always, we want to thank the YRA Member Yacht Clubs and their Race Committees that 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.

MLX allows the club racer or performance-oriented cruiser to upgrade their lines without breaking the bank. Innegra™-S, a high modulus polypropylene fiber, is used in Samson’s MLX. Blending Innegra™-S with Dyneema® results in a rope that bridges the gap in performance characteristics and price between traditional fibers like polyester and the high performance of HMPE, LCP and aramid fibers.

New Safety Requirements for U.S. Sailboat Racers As sailboat racers, we’ve traditionally been held to a higher standard than other recreational boaters when it comes to required safety equipment and boat construction standards. This is generally due to the conditions in which we race and the distances sailed far away from rescue services. The world standard for race boat equipment is the Offshore Special Regulations (OSRs) published by the International Sailing Federation, which describes the gear that we’re required to carry in races varying from day races around the buoys to circumnavigations in seven categories of severity. These requirements (and recommendations) used to be published in a thin, pocket-size volume that was a simple list of essential gear: the 1996 version consisted of about 16 pages covering four categories of racing. However, time has a way of making functional, simple documents into exceedingly comprehensive, complicated, and frequently less useful documents (as evidenced by tax laws, financial regulations, and pre-nuptial agreements). Thus, the OSRs expanded into a 200-page book which included seven categories, multihull requirements, many helpful recommendations, over a dozen appendices, and references to ISO standards which confounded many yacht owners, inspectors, and protest committees. One of the consequences of having a complicated set of rules is that compliance suffers. This was the case among the Bay Area organizing authorities for races in the Gulf of the Farallones: None of them used the OSRs for Category 2 races, and many used widely varying equipment requirements for what were essentially similar races. This all changed with the loss of the Sydney 38 Low Speed Chase in the OYRA Full Crew Farallones Race in 2012. In the aftermath of this tragedy, the Northern California Ocean Racing Council (NCORC) was created. The NCORC safety equipment working group attacked the issue of widely varying equipment requirements with the goal of creating a compact list of proven gear and yacht design criteria, specifically for races in the Gulf of the Farallones. After numerous meetings and public comment periods, the list of gear was made official for most of the races in 2013. How do you decide how comprehensive to make requirements? The two ends of the regulation spectrum might be represented by “I love the freedom of sailing, so don’t tell me what to do” and “Every life is precious; make sailing as safe as possible.” It becomes a balancing act between the cost of compliance, the track record of each incremental item, the ability for inspectors to determine compliance, the desire for organizing authorities to accept the requirements, and so forth. An extensive list of detailed requirements is worthless without compliance except, perhaps, in a court of law.

Page 28 •

Latitude 38

• 2014 YRA Calendar

The NCORC safety equipment working group came up with just under 50 items and construction standards for 2013 racing. Some of these items embraced newer technologies like VHF radios with Digital Selective Calling and inflatable life jackets with harnesses. However, most of the items were what we’ve raced with for 30 years: lifelines, cockpits that drain, bilge pumps, and Coast Guard required gear. It’s important to point out what’s missing from the NCORC Minimum Offshore Requirements (MOR): 1. It contains only required items, not recommended items. 2. It avoids references to other documents like ISO standards, which can be pricey and are frequently difficult for non-professionals to understand. 3. It has no requirements for how to operate your vessel, including when to wear life jackets or harnesses, leaving these issues to the Notice of Race or Sailing Instructions. With the NCORC MOR as the starting point, a US Sailing working group added two more categories: Ocean, for open ocean races, and Nearshore for races close to shore during daylight hours. The NCORC MOR became the Coastal requirements and completed what is now known as the US Sailing Safety Equipment Requirements or SERs. With only three categories (Ocean, Coastal, and Nearshore), there will be many races that fall between the categories. The working group realized this, and encourages organizing authorities to pull items from adjacent categories for the conditions of their particular events. For example, a race from San Francisco to Santa Barbara might want to add a life raft requirement to the Coastal category. Our goal has been to simplify and standardize racing equipment requirements, and, as a result, improve the safety of racing sailboats. We hope you agree. Your comments are always welcome at hawley.chuck@gmail.com. – Chuck Hawley, Chairman, US Sailing Safety at Sea Safety Equipment Working Group The working group team members were Chuck Hawley, Jim Quanci, Michael Andrews, Max Crittenden, Andy Newell, and Jim Antrim. OYRA entries are required to comply with the simplified and standardized Northern California Offshore Racing Council equipment requirements.

Racers entering an ocean race or an ocean series must comply with the specific OYRA Minimum Equipment Requirements, including the requirement for a 406 EPIRB or PLB. No Note that 406 EPIRBs or PLBs are required equiplater than the Thurs- ment on OYRA races and many other ocean races! day before EACH race sailors must complete the online Crew & Boat registration form through www.jibeset.net. Please refer to www.yra.org/OYRA/ocean_safety.html for more information on ocean racing requirements. 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. Please see page 28 for information on recent developments in offshore safety requirements.

WOMEN’S CIRCUIT The events on this page constitute Latitude 38’s unofficial Women’s Circuit. We challenge women sailors to take the helm and create their own series of events from this list. You don’t need to finish first to win, and you don’t need to do all the races on the list either! Just send proof of your participation in as many events as you can to chris@latitude38.com, or fax it to (415) 383-5816, by November 10, 2014, and you could be crowned Latitude’s ‘Queen of the Women’s Circuit’. Deb Fehr, the 2013 Queen of the Women’s Circuit and a member of IYC, raced her Santana 22 Meli’ki in IYC’s Sadie Hawkins Race in February, OYC’s Rites of Spring in March, EYC’s Gracie & George Regatta in August and IYC’s Jack & Jill + 1 in November, after which her fellow sailors enthusiastically nominated her for the honor!

Jim Quanci, after placing 1st Overall in the 2012 Singlehanded TransPac in his Cal 40 Green Buffalo says: "13 days from San Francisco to Hawaii alone, 10 of those days flying the spinnaker in winds up to 32 knots without a round up or a wrap. My Alpha Spectra autopilot drove the whole way – and then drove the boat another 16 days taking us home. What more can one ask for? I just love my Alpha Spectra autopilot."

BAMA

RULES Latitude 38’s Basic Racing Guidelines 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 2013-2016, published by US Sailing. See www.ussailing.org/rules for details.

Bay Area Multihull Association

35th Annual

Double Handed Farallones Race

1. Port tack keep clear of starboard tack.

March 22

JAN ROLETTO

Bay Area Multihull Association • Competitive Racing • BAMA Cup Series • Web Based Crew List

2. If boats are on the same tack, and overlapped, the windward boat must keep clear of the boat to leeward. 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 damage or injury, 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 the windward boat still has to keep clear, even if windward is forced above what it believes is windward’s proper course. Leeward still has right of way.) 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. When approaching a windward mark on opposite tack. c. At a starting mark surrounded by navigable water. That is, you don’t have to let a barger in at the start except to avoid collision (then protest). 10. Acknowledge your fouls and protest those who don’t.

2014 YRA PARTY CIRCUIT Three great regattas plus a bonus race! Welcome to the eighth year of the YRA PC Series! This great series gives you three weekend regattas plus an additional race day in July. The PC Series consists of the three marquee YRA events – the Great Vallejo Race, sponsored by Vallejo Yacht Club; the 2nd Half Opener, sponsored by Encinal Yacht Club; and the Season Closer, sponsored by Corinthian Yacht Club. Each weekend regatta features a long distance race on Saturday, a party at the hosting club Saturday night and a shorter race on Sunday. The new Westpoint Regatta, hosted by Sequoia Yacht Club, is a one-race day.

WWW.NORCALSAILING.COM

There will be six main divisions for each regatta: PHRF, Sportboat, One Design, Multihull, Shorthanded and NonSpinnaker. We’ll then divide up each division into as many fleets as needed to create good racing. The three weekend regattas plus the new Westpoint Regatta only cost $180 when you sign up for the entire series. We think the PC Series is the best racing value on the Bay! If you were to sign up for each race individually, it would cost you almost $300.

The dates for the 2014 YRA Party Circuit are: • May 3 – The Great Vallejo Race 1, party Saturday night at Vallejo Yacht Club • May 4 – The Great Vallejo Race 2 • July 5 – The Westpoint Regatta • August 2 – The YRA 2nd Half Opener, party Saturday night at Encinal Yacht Club • August 3 – The YRA 2nd Half Opener • September 27 – The YRA Season Closer, party Saturday night at Corinthian Yacht Club • September 28 – The YRA Season Closer Sign up online at www.yra.org or call the YRA office for more information at (415) 771-9500.

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 determine 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 96-97. 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.

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.
