SYSCO 2021 Match Race : SYSCO

About Event

DESCRIPTION: This year SYSCO will be introducing Match Racing for the onedesign
fleets. This involves two boats of equal class racing against each on a
specific course. It’s like the America’s Cup but in Cal-20s or Merit-25s. If there
are more than two boats in the fleet wanting to race, there will be a series of
round-robin match races to determine the winner. Sounds like fun and it’s a
great way to improve your boat handling skills! Because Match Racing is new
to many SYSCO sailors, we will be having 2 seminars and 1 practice Match
Race before the event. The seminars will be run by Craig Daniels and Dierk
Polzin on May 19 and 26 – time and place (or possible Zoom seminar) to be
determined later. The practice race will be held on a Saturday, July 10. There
will be on-the-water coaches and judges helping out. The actual Match Racing
event will be held on Saturday, July 17 and 24. There are a number of online
videos that help you prepare for match racing. You may wish to start with
Dave Perry’s welcome and go from there. Click on

ELIGIBILITY AND INSTRUCTIONS: Match Racing will open to all SYSCO and
OCSA members in one-design fleets. Races will be governed by the Match Racing
Rules of Sailing, OCSA General Sailing Instructions, and supplemental sailing
instructions posted on the OCSA Event Notice Board. Match Racing seminars
highlighting rules and tactics will be run May 19 and 26, time and place TBD.
