25 June - JYC Racing
After a very cold spring with lots of fog, here we are into the 2nd week of JYC summer racing with some more wild weather which had us cancelling a race! Hopefully, you all stayed safe in port for the evening. With the weather and water temps warming up, here’s hoping for some good racing. Class splits are set for the summer and if the first race is an indication, everyone is out sailing with us.
Notable upcoming events include our break in the summer series for the Crew Rotation Race on August 4th. I am also trying to organize the Racing Social for that evening. More to follow via email and our JYC website.
A summary of the 2015 Race Circular changes is available at the JYC website attached as the last page to the Race Circular. Please check it out.
Many thanks to our Race Committee volunteers. Without you, we couldn’t conduct the races!
See you all on the water!
9 June - No racing tonight due to fog so since this was the last night of the Spring Series the final results are posted.
2 June - Will it warm up soon! Another cold evening out on the race course.
19 May - Racing canceled due to FOG!
12 May - So the first race of the 2015 season is under our belt. It
was great to have 14 boats out after our very cold & delayed spring. It was also
lovely to have beautiful sunshine for the evening.
So for those who came out, we hope you enjoyed the evening. For those who have made it yet, we're looking forward to seeing you out on the water.
A few reminders to all our racers:
- Please stay clear of the starting line if it is not your class' start. This is for safety as well as courtesy to your fellow racers.
- Please do not recross the finish line, after your finish. In accordance with our race circular, you may be protested for hindering the race committee's ability to see other finishes.
Thank you for your attention to this.
See you out there next week.

22 April - JYC Racing
Hopefully, you are all thawing out and finally getting ready for our first Spring Series start on May 12th! While I can’t do anything about our weather, I can promise a good time on the water, which is what we’re all about.
Our evening at Wickford Yacht Club’s Commodore’s Cocktail party brought out some new ideas which I plan to address at the Skipper’s meeting. Our meeting will be held April 28th at the Jamestown Firehouse at 7:00pm. I’m looking forward to seeing our interested racers and discuss some possible new events.
If you are not able to sail with us this season, come join race committee. Please contact me at 401.782.7271 if you would like to join us. No experience necessary as your training will be on the water and there is always good fun (and snacks!) to be had. So whether you’ll be racing or joining the RC, we hope to see you all out there.
See you at the Skipper’s meeting.

7 April - Logan Ray is the recipient of the Joshua Leonard Sailing Scholarship this year. Logan is a 3rd grader at the Jamestown Melrose School.
2 April - This was the second Movie Night at the Jamestown Library. Those attending really enjoyed the movie "Morning Light".
12 February - Our first movie night was a great dry-run. We ended up watching Maidentrip because I didn't get Morning Light in the mail soon enough. I brought other sailing movies and we all voted very democratically :) The room is turn-key and the equipment there was nice. It got very chilly in the room so I need to solve that for next time, but otherwise it's a great spot for simple, free events like this. Sarah Molinari
6 February - The February Courier is now posted.
