Everyone did an excellent job in the regatta.  The wind conditions and results were not where we had hoped, but everyone was focused and we improved with each race.
The last two races, Playstation was the first boat off the line and in the last race, Cush was mid-fleet and finished two seconds behind Ishkoodah (a boat that should beat us by minutes). The participation in the regatta and in this year’s big boat program overall has been fantastic.
Here’s to continued Big Boat Sailing in the future!

Welcome to Junior Big Boat Sailing 2018
The Junior Big Boat Sailing (JBBS) season is fast approaching. It will be an exciting year with new sailors and returning sailors. The program is different this year so please review this document and all emails carefully.
JBBS Racing – For Novice and Experienced Sailors
JBBS is an opportunity to learn boat handling, sail trim and navigation. Sailors will participate in the Wednesday night club series races, starting on 6/24.  Sailors may have the opportunity to race in the Dorade Regatta, the overnight Beach Point Regatta, and BRYC PHRF JBBS Regatta. Participation by a sailor in regattas will be dependent on the sailor’s attendance in practices, individual sailing skills, sailing experience, overall attitude and parent volunteerism.  Sailors who want to race in these regattas are required to take the one day Safety at Sea Program, held at Larchmont Yacht Club, and the successfully completion of the on-line Seamanship Test and the Navigation Program, offered at Black Rock. Also available to members of this group is the opportunity to take the JSA Navigation Test given at Riverside Yacht Club. The results of this test are potential recognition and awards by the JSA and BRYC.  BRYC member Tom Black has volunteered to teach the navigation class. We are extremely fortunate to have such an experienced person available to help out. Navigation skills are something you’ll be very happy to have when you are out sailing and the power dies and your GPS goes dark. They will also help you ace your geometry class!
Parents – We need you to volunteer to bring bottles of water for practices, car-pool sailors to each event and for ad hoc requests.  Your help is very much appreciated and is critical to the success of the JBBS program.
