The PHRF fleet is made up of new and old racers and boats of all types and sizes. Participants need to register with the club prior to events, and maintain a vaild handicap certificate with the PHRF – Pacific Handicap Racing Fleet. The fleet participates in regattas around the region, long distance and overnight races, and competitive racing with other clubs. If you would like to get started, contact the club, or feel free to come down to the club after racing on Wednesday nights, introduce yourself and strike up some conversation as there are plenty of opportunities for crew members and new boats alike.
Wednesdays after racing the club is open to members, guests, and crew members with a valid BYC crew card for some apres racing fun, story swapping, libations and a buffet dinner served by club volunteer Bob Kehoe a.k.a. “Cookie”.
