Twilight Series 1 and 2
Twilight racing is extremely popular during the Summer season. The CYCSA offers two Wednesday Twilight Series – one pre-Christmas and one post-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 meal, presentations and prizes. Twilight Racing is a great opportunity to break up the working week and make some new friends.
From May through to August the CYCSA conducts the 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. Prize-giving happens on the patio 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 4 Short-handed Destination Race to Pt Vincent.
Highlights of the CYCSA racing calendar include the Yalumba Great Southern Regatta, the Premier’s Cup Regatta, and the Adelaide to Port Lincoln Race.
The fleet at the CYCSA comprises of the following divisions:
Division 1, Division 2, IRC, AMS
