APRIL 1&2, 2017
Berkeley Yacht Club invites all monohulls meeting Northern California PHRF minimum requirements to participate in the 45th annual ROLLO WHEELER MEMORIAL REGATTA. There will be buoy races on Saturday using both fixed and temporary marks. There will be a pursuit race on Sunday. The Saturday races will be scored independently from the Sunday race
There will be two groups – The Wheeler group and the City of Berkeley group. There is a perpetual trophy for each group. Entrants will be assigned to a division within a group based on length and PHRF rating. The Wheeler group (larger boats) will race in the deeper waters of SF Bay. The City of Berkeley group (smaller boats) will race on the Olympic Circle, finishing their last race at Berkeley Yacht Club.
One Design divisions will be formed upon request from at least five yachts. There must be a consensus among these yachts regarding the applicable class rules. Inter-divisional scoring for the perpetual trophies will be via the class’s ODR (One Design Rating).
For the Sunday pursuit race, all entrants will be assigned start times based on their PHRF ratings. The order of actual finish will determine the winners.
- Entire regatta: $70.
- Saturday Only: $ 50.
- Sunday Only: $ 35.
Entrants are welcome to raft up at the BYC guest dock Friday and/or Saturday. There are also a few free berths available. For details, contact Club Manager at (510) 843-9292 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
