2013-14 Log Racing Schedule

 BYC will host three club races in this upcoming year.  The dates are listed below.  These races will be BYC-only “Friendly” competitions to encourage broader participation and help racers prepare for the IPBA-sanctioned races and, most notably, BYC’s own Heavy Weather race in February.  Each event will include a “skull session” in the week prior to the race to meet with other racers and to share notes on race planning.  Also, as Log Racing is a Social Event, there will be a club-hosted dinner following each race to share race experiences (real and perceived) and to recognize the top finishes.  Race details will be provided here and by email roughly three weeks in advance of each race.

The races below are sanctioned by the International Power Boat Association and hosted by many of the Grand Fourteen Yacht Clubs and are great opportunities to visit the other clubs and their local waters and to enjoy a great two or three days of social events in addition to the race itself.  Race information can be found at http://www.ipbalogracing.org/comingevents/default.htm.  BYC will generally have skull sessions the week prior to each race to support race preparations.  Specific dates and times will be provided by the Regatta Chair for Power.
