I am pleased to announce the introduction of a new Trophy for the 2010 Wednesday night non spinnaker summer series.
The trophy is the PJB Trophy which was donated to the Club last year by Mrs Bermingham and Colm. This trophy will be raced for over the 3 series and will be applicable to the non spinnaker IRC category only.
It will be awarded to the boat with the lowest cumulative score under the IRC system from the 3 HYC Wednesday night summer series (September mini series NOT included).
4 discards will be allowed on the basis of one discard from each of the three series and allowing for one additional discard to be taken in the 2nd or 3rd series.
The 1st discard will apply where there is a minimum of 4 races sailed in the series. Boats will only be allowed to avail of the second discard in the 2nd and 3rd series and where there is a minimum of 5 races sailed in the series.
I would like to thank Colm for allowing this Trophy to be competed for by the White Sails Class. I believe that this is a positive addition to the summer series.
