The annual event hosted by IRYC is scheduled for Feb 2nd & 3rd sailing out Kelly Park in the Banana River south of the 528 Causeway.
IRYC Fleet Captain Mike Nulf has announced that the Dragon Point racing for 2019 will be split into three series, Winter, Summer and Fall. In conjunction with this change, series scoring will incorporate low score throw-outs to better accommodate boats that miss a single event during the series.
Previously announced race dates remain mostly unchanged, however an additional date has been added in October for both the Co-Ed and then Women’s fleet as the regularly scheduled Fleet 87 regatta was moved to July this year. The Women’s series race schedule for July will also likely be rescheduled pending review.
2019 IRYC Dragon Point Registration Form is now available. Fill it out and drop it off at the RC boat during January’s event or risk not being scored.
News announced by District 10’s new governor Robby Brown, distributed by Fleet 87’s Captain Peter Fischel, forwarded by his email tech wizard John Tworkowski:
“This year we (Melbourne’s Fleet 87) are trading dates with Miami so they can use our October date as a pre worlds event.”
The annual J/24 Fleet 87 regatta, normally scheduled in October, will instead by held on July 20th & 21st this year.

Scoring System: ISAF Low Point
PHRF Triangle Races will be held on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. There will be three races altogether, each run and scored independently, with prizes for each race. Scoring will be PHRF Time on Time. You may participate in one, two or all three races. These races do not count towards the Big Boat Regatta winner, meaning if you can not make the races on Friday, it will not hurt your scoring for the weekend regatta.
