The Royal Motor Yacht Club of Broken Bay has launched a brand-new yacht racing series to celebrate the coming summer.
Called the Broken Bay Island Series (BBIS) it’s a three-race event centred around RMYC’s long running Three Islands race and including two more events that will incorporate at least two island turns and be sailed on a Saturday.
The concept of the BBIS is to provide typical club racing yachts a full series that’s not too demanding on free time and really delivers on the fun of racing in a sizeable fleet with spinnakers.
The attraction of the annual RMYC Three Island race has always been the navigational challenge of tides and shallows quite apart from variable winds and some semi-open water.
RMYC Sailing Master, James Hill says the main aim of the BBIS is to deliver on those same challenges over a three-race series that’s a bit different to normal around-the buoys regattas.
Race Coordinator, Steve Lucas says previously the 3-lslands race was part of a local club series, however the BBIS reaches out to include boats and club teams from anywhere from the Central coast, Sydney Harbour and south to Port Hacking. “We really want more clubs to get involved and berthing is available for visiting competitors at our top class marina in Newport, Pittwater,” says Lucas.
RPAYC will be joining the Series and encourages owners to fly the RPAYC Flag.
