It is easy and simple to participate in AYC racing events - in general you will need to:

  1. Accept a liability waiver
  2. Verify that you have insurance 

In order to participate in club buoy and distances races you will need to pay a one-time registration fee of $100. If you would like to be scored you will also need to be a current PHRF-Northwest member and have a valid 2016 rating for your boat.  

Your PHRF-NW membership is required if you want to be scored as it provides you with a handicap rating which the club can use to correct your elapsed times relative to the performance potential of your boat.  For additional information about PHRF-Northwest, please refer to the following website.   Your can also contact our local club PHRF handicapper, Colin Emsley for additional information.

In order to participate in the following events you will need to complete a separate on-line registration process:

  • Foul Weather Race [Feb 20, 2016)
  • Tulip Cup Regatta [April 2-3, 2016]
