Primary Race Officer:
The Lady Skipper is part of the Cannon/Billado Series.
For the LCYC Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions, Courses, and on-line Race Registration see http://lcyc.info/racing. To be scored you must register and have a current PHRF rating.
The race features a single race, mostly or totally in the broad lake, using LCYC racing marks, government marks, or both. There are over 90 course options, grouped by wind direction; these course options are listed in the race documents in the LCYC website noted above.
The Lady Skipper race, created in 1973 by William Brown III and Chuck Bowen, requires a lady to skipper the yacht from start to finish.
The race is open to any boat skippered by a woman. There are both JAM and Spinnaker Divisions.
There is a skippers’ meeting at the clubhouse the morning of the race. However, the Racing Rules of Sailing prohibit on-shore changes to the Sailing Instructions, so if you cannot make the meeting just look for the race committee boat to view the displayed course number. The RC boat monitors Ch 72 if you have any questions not covered by race documents.
There are Spinnaker and JAM class trophies for this race. Boats contesting in this race will be scored for the Lady Skipper as well as for the Cannon/Billado Series.
If you would like to come to LCYC before the race, we have a few guest moorings available by reservation; or you could anchor in Sled Runner cove north of the club or off Allen Hill to the south. In either case, please make advance arrangements with the club stewards for a mooring reservation, tie up space for your dinghy, or possible pickup at your anchorage by a club member. During club operating hours (1100 to 2100 weekdays, 0900 to 2100 weekends & holidays) the clubhouse phone number is 802-985-3372 and the stewards monitor Ch 12.
