“Sail against the clock” is an easy and simple challenge: record your elapse time sailing on the 3 nm course. You can try and beat the clock throughout the season, any day and as often as you wish. You can participate solo, with your family or other crew, white sail or with spinnaker.

Start the timer when the skipper exits the 1 boat-length circle around mark 32 and stop it when the skipper re-enters the 1 boat-length circle of mark 32. All marks are rounded by sailing within one boat length of the mark.

Enter your elapsed time in this form, with weather : your rank, corrected time versus your boat’s handicap will display in PCYC website. Results will also be available in a spreadsheet, allowing statistics over the season, versus weather conditions and other factors.

This challenge is only governed by your motivation for improvement There are no race committee or protest or busy start line. Sail against the clock, gain experience with your boat and your crew, practice maneuvers in variable sailing conditions and have fun!

Prizes are awarded at the end of the season.
