TIME TRIALLING AT RFBYC

The Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club winter time trialling season will commence on a date to be advised at the easing of Govt. restrictions related to the Covid-19 Coronavirus.  Once open, time trialling is available to all Members of all Clubs, power and sail. 

A nominated boat can compete in as many events during the season as they would like. Additional events such as State Teams Events and other WA yacht club invitational events will require seperate nominations and information for these will be sent as required.

Time trialling provides a wonderful opportunity to use your boat big or small on the river over the winter months. 

Time trialling is a test of accuracy rather than speed, and requires that you arrive at checkpoints located a known distance apart at precisely the right time, based on your nominated speed of between 5 and 15 knots.

 

A one point penalty is applied for every second that a boat is early or late at each checkpoint, so that the boat with the lowest number of points lost wins the event. Prizes are also awarded for results on handicap weekly and there are a number of perpetual trophies presented on Closing Day. 

 

It sounds simple but getting the prefect 'zero' score is deceptively difficult and you will find yourself developing your knowledge of the river and perfecting your boat handling skills to achieve it.

 

Events usually start at 2pm on Saturday and after completing the event, participants proceed to the Member's Bar for some well earned socialising, a bite to eat and announcement of results.

POWER PARTNERS PROGRAM

Each season we have had some wonderful Club Members who have generously provided corporate season partnership support to run the power yacht time trialling season. In addition to weekly prizes for Club consistency events and perpetual trophy prizes, corporate partners can support numerous Club events such as the Camp Quality Family Fun Day, Kylie Cup Invitational Time Trial, the 2020 State Time Trialling Team, with your support we will be able to sponsor a keelboat race day and a dinghy race day.

It is important that the sailing and power fleets are united and support one another and it is great to see that this spirit is alive and well at the Club. It is our aim to provide additional weekly participation prizes for those attending presentations after each time trial competition to encourage further involvement.

Please see the 2020 Power Partners Program Platinum, Gold and Silver tier benefits.

If you would like to become a 2020 Power Partner or would like to continue your ongoing partnership with the power yacht competition please let us know by emailing power@rfbyc.asn.au, we would love to have you on board!
