The Wednesday night races were started by long time Chickamauga Sailing Club (CSC) members and the series is still the most popular at PYC.  They are now sponsored by the PYC PHRF Fleet.  See below for the link to the rules and the results.


Wednesday Night Racing Rules

2017 Rules -

1.  All Boats, Spinnaker and Non Spinnaker will be scored as one fleet with appropriate PHRF handicaps.

2.  All boats must declare that they are spinnaker or non spinnaker before the warning signal of the 1st race of the day and will be scored the same way for all races that day.

3.  In order for a race to elligible for scoring, there must be a minimum of 3 boats racing. 

4.  All boats will be handicapped using the average PHRF rating as published by U S Sailing with appropriate adjustments for Spinnaker, Non Spinnaker, or other equipment adjustments as set by the PHRF Rating Committee.

5.  Boats sailing non spinnaker with an over length whisker pole will be given an adjustment to thier base rating determined by the PYC PHRF Committee, with the exception of boats whose base rating assumes a class legal, over length pole.

6.  There will be a 2 hour time limit for for each race.  If no boat finishes within 2 hours, the race will be abandoned.
