The Phil Hoffmann Travel Twilight Series
Twilight racing is extremely popular during the Summer season. The CYCSA offers two Wednesday Twilight Series – one before Christmas and one after Christmas. The Twilight Series is a great opportunity for novice racers and casual sailors to experience the thrill of competing in a large fleet. No spinnakers are allowed in this series, thus alleviating the need for experienced crew on board. Races start around 6pm and the evening culminates with a gourmet BBQ, presentations and prizes. Twilight Racing is a great opportunity to break up the working week and make some new friends.
Port River Marine Winter Series
From May through to August the CYCSA conducts the Port River Marine Winter Series. This series runs parallel with a Combined Winter Series held in conjunction with the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron. Typically the combined Winter Series fleet sees 35+ boats out on the water every second Sunday. Race days typically start with a cooked breakfast on the club patio, followed by prize-giving after the race.
The Short-handed Series is run on sporadic Saturdays from May – August. Conducted as a Category 6 series it is open to boats crewed by two able persons 18 years and over. In 2012 the Racing Association introduced a Category 3 Short-handed Destination race to Pt Vincent.
