2019 Notice of Race (Coming soon)
2019 Sailing Instructions
The popular CYCA Winter Series began in its current format in the 1949 and has increased over the years to become Australia’s largest ongoing series, with fleets averaging 140+ boats.
The CYCA Winter Series commences each year with the traditional Ladies Day, followed by the pointscore races and concluding with the final Ladies Day Race before many of the boats head north in the Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race.
The CYCA Winter Series 2019 includes nine pointscore races, which are book-ended by the increasingly popular opening and closing Ladies day non-pointscore races.
Every Sunday morning, crews can enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast and piping hot coffee from the Breakfast Club volunteers, or from the deck, before heading onto the water in one of the 12 proposed divisions.
An IRC division, limited to 12 entrants on a first come, first served basis, will be included again with a scratch start prior to the main pursuit divisions.
Boats shall only be eligible to enter the IRC division if they have participated in other CYCA IRC events in the past 24 months. Boats wishing to enter IRC should complete the online entry and will be accepted in order of receipt if the boat meets the above criteria.
Sydney Harbour is the best place to be on a Winter Sunday, but it’s equally pleasant back at the Clubhouse where the weekly prizegiving is held.
