Using the website & Top Yacht:
I have received a number of calls saying the website race entry system was not working. Upon looking into it, it seems that it is a search engine issue. As with a lot of sites, they seem to work best using Google Chrome so we suggest you use this as your preferred search engine until I can talk with Top Yacht.
Please can you get your registration in by 11th November using the below link? We will send out the SI’s for the sail past on Friday the 12th. This year we will also hold a social race prior to the Sail Past and SI’s for these will also be sent out Friday 12th. It will be a fleet start from the tower.
MemberPoint App: Reminder
If you have not already done so, please load the MemberPoint app onto your mobile devices. This is the main tool for communicating with members, especially for racing. It is also how you will do your crew sign-on get results, enter races, and more (see also the article in the week’s ebreeze).
If you are unfamiliar with the app please visit https://www.rmys.com.au/sail-pass/
New RMYS Pursuit Course list: REMINDER
Work has been put into the pursuit courses to provide different courses for the Spinnaker and Non-Spinnaker fleets. The below link will take you to the new list.
What are the changes: Each course has 2 options; a Non-spinnaker and a Spinnaker fleet option. The spinnaker fleet option is longer. Both fleets will be sailing in the same direction. Courses denoted with the s = Spinnaker fleet course. The RO will display the course on the start box as the Number ONLY, so it’s up to the skipper and crew to know which fleet they are in.
So, if the RO decides to set course 1 this will be displayed on the box. The spinnaker fleet must sail the 1s course.
