Spring & Summer Short Ocean Pointscores

The Spring and Summer Short Ocean Pointscore (SOPs) are conducted on Sunday afternoons. They consist of windward leeward courses, some of which start and finish in the Harbour and some of which start and finish offshore.  Full details regarding start times (which vary with daylight savings), courses etc are located in NCYC’s Sailing Handbook which can be obtained from the Club or Administration.

Club Marine Twilight Series

NCYC’s Club Marine Twilight Series is run on Wednesday afternoons in Summer. The start times vary dependant on daylight savings and also whether a scratch start or pursuit start is scheduled. Entrants can elect to sail spinnaker or non-spinnaker and are handicapped accordingly.

The Club Marine Twilight Series provides a great opportunity to get people new to sailing out on the water and build their skills, and presents a great social environment in which to enjoy sailing.
