We have four days of racing scheduled with the CBRA (Classic Boat Racing Association) of the San Francisco YRA. Based on a fleet vote at the recent Spring Meeting it was decided that the Folkboat fleet would not participate in the previously scheduled CBRA #1 race May 6th at Southampton due to adverse tides. The fleet will also not be racing in CBRA #5 on Saturday, September 2nd as this is the day after the International Regatta when we will be busy returning boats to their home marina. As a result, the Folkboat fleet will only be participating in the following CBRA races:
CBRA #2, May 13th, Circle, SFYC
CBRA #3, June 10th, City Front, GGYC
CBRA #4, August 6th, Central Bay, CYC
CBRA #6, September 30th, City Front, StFYC
The cost for these four days of racing is $160.00 plus $50.00 annual YRA membership.
Unfortunately there is not currently a link available on the YRA web site to sign up for the CBRA races. We will let you know when this becomes available. There is still plenty of time as our first CBRA race is not until May 13th. Please note that the actual number of the CBRA race dates may change once the schedule is posted on the YRA web site as we are canceling the race scheduled for May 6th. The actual dates of the four days that the Folkboats will participate should not change.
The NOR for the CBRA races is available here.
SAUSALITO YC INVITATIONAL
The Folkboat fleet will be racing three days as part of the Sausalito Yacht Club Invitational:
SYC Inv. #1, Saturday, April 8th, Alcatraz
SYC Inv. #2, Saturday, August 19th, Alcatraz
SYC Inv. #3, Saturday, September 9th, Alcatraz or Knox

The cost of the three days of SYC races is $120.00.
In addition to the above series, there will be several individual regattas that will count towards the 2017 Folkboat Season Championship. These will all require separate registration:
Resin Regatta, April 29-30, San Francisco Yacht Club, Berkeley Circle
Woodies Regatta, June 23-25, St. Francis Yacht Club, City Front
Moseley Regatta, August 5, Tiburon Yacht Club, North Bay
Links to register for these regattas will be sent out as they become available.
Reminder: The races between April 8th and the end of the Woodies Regatta on June 25th will be used for the qualification for the 2017 SF Cup International Regatta. Dependent on weather, there should be 17-18 races by this point in our season. It was agreed that we would again allow for one throwout per five races, so if all goes according to plan there should be three throwouts by the end of June.
