                                                                                       The Plym Yacht Club hosts several events such as the                                                                                        Friday Night Series (I and II), the Keith Hyde (for fully                                                                                       crewed yachts) and Danny Sargent (or two handed yachts)                                                                                       Memorial Race (Long Distance Race), the Plym Yacht Club                                                                                        Regatta, the Plymouth Inshore Points Series and Saturday                                                                                        Afternoon Autumn Series (specifically aimed at cruisers in                                                                                         NHC Divisions A, B and C). The races generally take place                                                                                        in Plymouth Sound, utilizing various buoys as markers to be                                                                                       challenging as the bay is somewhat sheltered, and at times                                                                                       there+is a dying incoming sea breeze that is heading in a                                                                                        different direcion from the upcoming evening breeze off                                                                                        the land. Tidal considerations also confuse the issue                                                                                        further. Most of the  fleet nsists of Portsmouth Yardstick                                                                                       Divisions FastA, PYA, PYB, and PYC but there are also                                                                                       other classes if enough boats present themselves, eg. IRC                                                                                        or Ballad etc., in  the order of six boats +. and the p split                                                                                       varies depending on entry, but can peak at around 17 - 20                                                                                       boats in a class during popular times ! In September                                                                                        afternoon aimed at cruisers that want to improve their                                                                                       sailing by taking part in gentle racing. Don't worry if                                                                                         you've never raced before, this series is for you. A NEW class has been introduced, “THE WHITE SAIL CLASS”. This class is for the cruising fraternity to gently race without all the hassle of full blown racers. They race ONLY under main and jib/genoa and spinnakers or cruising shutes are BANNED. The handicaps will be based on the Port Handicap for their boat. If this class takes off we may expand it to cover other events in the year.
