Racing Rules Trivia Night

With racing season near, LYC’s Racing Rules Trivia Night presented sailors challenging situations in the Lightship Classroom on April 24th. The event drew more than 30 sailors, mostly from the Wednesday night PHRF racing fleet. As the virtual PRO (Principal Race Officer) LYC member Henrik Pederson presented 25 questions with diagrams to various teams, testing their knowledge of sailboat racing rules. Questions varied in difficulty from naming the preparatory signal flag to naming the appropriate rules for obscure situations at the starting line. In a pub style atmosphere food and beverage were provided as well. Congratulations to Nitzan Levy and Team Sailors NYC for getting the most correct answers! Its always comforting to know that someone knows the rules out on the water!

Nitzan Levy and Team Sailors NYC enjoying their victory!
