Racing on Tuesday, August 13th was cancelled due to poor weather conditions.
Greetings to All 2013 Ensign National Championship Guests!
Toms River Yacht Club and Fleet 63 are honored to be your hosts for the 2013 Ensign Nationals. This will be a record 5th time we have hosted, and we look forward to having you all again! Toms River Yacht Club takes great pride in its regatta management, and has held many regional and national events.
Hurricane Sandy has left an imprint on the sailing community and the bay, but TRYC is up and running and has a great event planned!
Some new things since you were here last:
TRYC now has two hoists that are Ensign capable. Please indicate on the entry form if you have a built in lifting ring . We would like to determine if we need a second frame and slings.
Also, our new pool will be open this summer for the enjoyment of your family and shore-side team, and we are hopeful it will accentuate the socials.
Credit card services will also be available.
I strongly recommend everyone get their housing early, as damage from Sandy has resulted in higher demand on rentals and hotels for the upcoming summer. We have blocks of rooms reserved, and we are also looking to provide some team housing with club members on a limited, first-come-first-serve basis.
Thanks so much for coming, and if I can be of any service let me know.
On a square starting line, on a race course where every boat must tack at least once, boats starting at either end of the starting line will travel the same distance to the weather mark. Certainly, strategy and tactics come into play if the weather mark is skewed to the left or right, but the distance is the same...
