Sunday Racing Series
The PPYC Sunday Racing Series will be Sundays, June through September. The series will offer both buoy and distance races. Participants meet on deck at 1:30 for a short meeting to prepare for the start.
Any one-design fleets that have two or more boats at the start line can run in the buoy races.
Buoy races will be short windward-leeward courses that use a race committee and inflatable marks.
Distance races will be pursuit races similar to our Wednesday Night races. The distance course will be either the D Course or the Wednesday Night Course, depending on the wind. When the committee boat is used for a start line, the distance races will use the committee boat start line for a windward start and round the weather mark to port before sailing their course. Otherwise, distance races will start at the same no-wake markers we use for Wednesday Night races.
Starting times are here: D Course Starting Times, WN Course Starting Times.
Course descriptions and diagrams are here: Sunday Race Series Courses D and Wednesday Night.
PPYC members who are interested in learning to sail as crew on a racing boat are encouraged to show up between 1:00 and 1:30 p.m. We will help you find a ride. It would be helpful to us if you could add your name and contact information to our Our Crew Available Directory. Learn more about that at this link: Crew Needed / Crew Available.
Join us this summer for some great weekend racing!
