Series Championship is determined for the Wednesday evening series, Saturday series and Club Champion (Robbie Robertson and the 2 Earl Forshner regatta races)
Championship is determined by the ISAF low point system for the schedualed races Using this system points are awarded 0.75 for 1st, 2 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, etc... with the number of entrants plus 1 for DNF, DNS, DNC, etc.... One drop is allowed meaning the best races for each boat are used.
In the event of a tie the boat that finishes ahead in the last race sailed by both boats wins the tie breaker.
In memory of Robbie Robertson BHYC dedicates this July race to Robbie Robertson.
Robbie was a founding member of BHYC and a former commodore. Along with daughter Meredith and son-in-law Terry they sailed Nuada out of BHYC for ten years. Our annual pursuit race and fund raising event was renamed in honour of Robbie after his passing. We miss Robbie and hope that somewhere he is still cooking, sailing and smiling.
Earl Forshner Regatta
Earle sailed with his wife Donna and they had a blue Parks 23 that was named “Knot too Old”. They were great positive influences at the club and always smiling. While returning from a cruise Earl was knocked off Knot Too Old and could not be recovered in time. The Earl Forshner trophy is awarded to the boat that comes 9th (or closest to 9th from BHYC) in memory of Earl and to remind fellow sailors of the safety issues on the water. The 9th position was chosen to represent this as this is the position Donna says they always finished in. In most years Donna provides a piece of safety equipment to be raffled off to a race participant and a life jacket to be awarded to the 9th place finisher. This is the hardest trophy to win.
