Islander 36 Association
2010 Racing Schedule

Here's your 2010 Racing Schedule from Fleet Captains/Race Chair Tom & David Newton. So far it's similar to the 2009 schedule and it's got something for everyone, but refinements are likely before racing starts in 2010, so check back when 2010 arrives.

This year we propose a twelve race, three throw-out series for the Season's Championship series. This will allow a boat to miss one 2-race day and one single race day and still be in the hunt.

We also propose a second race series, The All Sails Cup (not to be confused with the Dr. Charles Ormand Cup). This is a three race, no throwout, series with spinnakers allowed. These three Spinnaker races will include races the association won't count for the Season Championship but which we are included in the annual ODCA entry fee. These three races include the race going to Vallejo, the "Long" race of the season 2nd Half Opener and the last race of the Corinthian YC Season Closer, the "crazy eight" race.

Now is a good time tosign up for racing in 2010! Talk to the 2009 racers or Fleet Captains Tom & David Newton below. Start lining up a crew. Ask Tom or David for help in making your season entry if you haven't done it before. Here's a link to the YRA Sign-Up.

We'd like all past and a few new racers out there. If you haven't been measured, call our Measurer Kris Youngberg, (415-828-1833) to schedule your boat measurement so you can get a Measurement Certificate. It's an easy process, just call Kris at the above number (or email kris.youngberg@gmail) to get started. You can check out the requirements and process at Racer Certification

As an added incentive to get an islander & come race with us, we've got a Promotional program to boot!

It's a good idea to read (and reread!) the structure and Sailing Instructions for the YRA One Design Class Association (ODCA) series. A link is: ODCA Instructions..

Below our official Islander schedule you will find a list of other fun regattas you may want to consider. A link to the YRA web page for more information is provided.

Saturday, arrive by early afternoon for a fun race, with the cruisers as spectators - racers are invited to come for the day. Then dinner at Encinal Yacht Club, and finally, a Sunday breakfast at Oakland YC to finish it off.

These races are sponsored and conducted by individual yacht clubs under the general rules of the YRA. The Islander Association simply has scheduled a start for Islanders in their races and assumes no liability for race events. It is the responsibility of each individual owner to decide if his or her boat and crew are suitable for a given event, and whether to participate, start or continue to race in any event.
