CIYC Sunday JAM Series is Starting on July 23rd

The City Island Yacht Club cordially invites all cruisers, day sailors, and racers alike, to come out for a series of relaxed Sunday jib and main races. The races will be short, approximately one hour, and the courses will be triangles. No windward–leeward courses and no spinnakers. Also, no poling out jibs or genoas with spinnaker poles or whisker poles. Non-racers and racers are encouraged to bring family members, sailors, and non-sailors.

DATES: July 23, August 6, August 20, September 10
LOCATION: Approx 1/2 mile north-northwest of buoy 46A
START TIME: 4:00 p.m.

There will be a long start line with plenty of room for everyone to start. The start line will be between a white mark and the yellow flag on the Race Committee boat. You will not be able to miss it. The committee boat will monitor VHF channel 71. Results will be announced on the CIYC porch after the race. Boats will be scored PHRF, time on distance, and racing boats will be scored separately from cruising boats. If you don’t have a PHRF certificate, we’ll figure out what your rating should be. There is no entry fee. If there is a NOAA small craft advisory in effect as of 10:00 a.m. on the day of the race, the race will not be held. If you want to come out, contact Jim Dennis at or 914-714-2195.
