Spring, Summer & Winter 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). The Winter Series commences on 1 May, 2016 and courses etc are located in updated NCYC Sailing Handbook 2015 -16 which can be obtained from the Club or Administration.
Earlier issues of the Handbook have been issued with an Amendment No. 2 & 3. These have now been updated by the below Amendment No. 4 Link.

This reduction in fees is effective immediately, it will be available for the duration of the Winter Series and will also apply for one week following the final week of the Winter Series (ending 3/7/2016) allowing an extra period of time for participating yachts to make plans to either stay here at NCYC or head home to their respective clubs.
Club Marine Twilight Series
NCYC’s Club Marine Twilight Series is run on Wednesday afternoons in Summer. The start times vary dependent 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.
