Kestutis' Senior Project

Motion: Approve improvements of the Hunters as Kestutis Sinkunas' senior project. He will replace the plastic gudgeons with aluminum ones, replace the rudderhead cheeks with thicker cheeks, and install mast plates to keep the main sail slugs on the mast. Peter moved, Norm seconded, passed unanimously.

JY Racing

Motion: Excomm shall officially sanction the JY races starting retroactively April 1st until November 24, 2007. No official racing rating will be required of the skippers. The races will be held Thursday evenings starting at 1700 until sunset and all club JY15's will be reserved for the races during that time. Jennifer moved, Peter seconded, passed unanimously.

They will be conducted under the simplified racing rules listed below.

JY Racing Rules:

  • 1) Port keeps clear of starboard.
  • 2) Windward keeps clear of leeward.
  • 3) The boat astern keeps clear of the boat ahead.
  • 4) A boat Tacking or Jibing keeps clear of one that is not.
  • 5) Avoid collisions. Racing Rules are defensive to prevent collisions not offensive racing tactics.
  • 6) If you gain right of way or change course, give the other boat time to keep clear.
  • 7) The inside boat(s) at two boat lengths from the leeward mark is entitled to room to round the mark.
  • 8) A boat that is backing up or not racing keeps clear.
  • 9) If you have violated a rule, take a penalty. A penalty is to turn a 360 degree circle with at least 1 tack and 1 jibe.
  • 10) No protesting or yelling is allowed. If you are fouled, kindly ask the other boat to do their 360 degree circle.

Whether they do or not, the matter is over. After racing is concluded you may scream obscenities into your pillow about how you have been wronged.
