Ready To Race?
Here is the preliminary 2019 racing calendar for the Chesapeake Bay. As we write this, we’re still missing some important dates for CBYRA regions 1-3, as well as the CBYRA Green Book, yet many race dates have been published on club websites and elsewhere, so here’s our preliminary list for larger events.
Know that we at SpinSheet are the messengers, not the schedulers, so these dates are subject to change and revision. Don’t shoot the messenger! But do shoot us news anytime to [email protected], as we can and will update this list quickly.
We will include significant dinghy events as they come in as well--we recommend keeping your eye on websites such as that of Severn Sailing Association. We’ve also included a couple of far-flung favorites for Chesapeake sailors, such as the first on our list! CBYRA-sanctioned events are in bold-face:
