Site Changes for 2016

Face Lift
You may have noticed a few changes with the website lately. The RNYC Exec has been busy bringing you a better, more user-friendly experience. This includes a new face lift for the website that is designed to play nicely across all browsers and platforms – from laptops, tablets and smartphones. It’s also designed to show more content with each post. Since life on the water is so beautiful, we want to show off the rich content within each post! Photos and videos will be better showcased!

You’ll also notice we’ve revamped our Classifieds section, removing the old cumbersome plugin and replacing it with a new, more streamlined experience. Have something to post? Check it out here. Want to check out the listings? Check them here.

Race Qs – Race Week

For anyone looking to get a little more in-depth with their racing this week, Tom Hickey has kindly set up a regatta page on Race Qs. Click Here

Race QS is an iPhone or Android app that records sailing data with your phone and creates a 3D replay of your race online. The 3D replay will show your boat and any other boats who were recording in your area. You don’t need any special equipment to get started, just a GPS or a smart phone. Give it a test drive today and change the way you race.

One person on the boat needs to install the RaceEQ’s app and run it while racing. Links to specific iPhone and Android downloads can be found here

Here’s an example race from last year’s Race Week with Warlock, Bella J, Deja Vu, Shalloway and High Energy.

Skippers Wanted: Delivery to Azores

The Port of St. John’s is working with a couple from Quebec who are looking to have their boat delivered to the Azores in August. The vessel is called Cap Sud, a 38 foot vessel.

The man who runs the boat hurt his arm, and the owners want a skipper to deliver to the Azores – maybe 12 to 14 day sail. They’re willing to pay $75/day, and fly the selected skipper back from the Azores. They are willing to go anytime in August.

Interested parties should reach out to Diane Carignan
