I was recently disappointed to hear that there may still be RPNYC boats sailing in Fleet and Championship Racing whose crew do not meet the membership requirements of the Sailing Instructions.
As a simple guide:
- Rum Racing and Special Racing – No specific Membership Requirements
- Any Fleet or Championship Racing – 80% of the Crew should be RPNYC Senior members or members of an affiliated club
There are other more detailed requirements for variation to this – please refer to the NoR section 5.5
Annual Membership costs less than a bottle of wine a week! Remind your Ocean Sports Grads they can get discounted membership for their first year. All membership options and the club rules can be found here
