Join the KYC Cruising Challenge
Make a triangle by visiting any 3 Yacht Clubs, not your own. In this example, we leave KYC and visit RYC, RCYC (or GKYC) and finally AHYC. To earn points you can visit the clubs in any order you choose, over any number of days to make a "triangle". Competitions will be within your club and between clubs.
The Cruising Challenge is designed to foster social interactions between all our clubs and to encourage our members to sail beyond their local waters.
All 3 points of the triangle must be Yacht Clubs. Your home club cannot be one of the points. Note that only Yacht Clubs are valid destinations. Marina receipts will not be accepted.
Timing and Triangle Definition
The competition runs from May through October of each year. Your three visits can take place over any period. Receipts/stamps must be provided to show the YC was patronized, however, no two triangles can share a common piece of documentation. In other words, visits to KYC, AHYC, RYC, GKYC and RCYC cannot be arranged into 2 triangles unless there are 2 receipts from two of them on different dates. Cruisers can send scanned or photographed receipts to [email protected].
Cards similar to the one shown will be available to cruisers at the Launch Shack, but any receipt bearing the name of a Yacht Club can also count as documentation. For each triangle created, 3 unique receipts or stamped/signed card must be presented. The signee must be an officer of the club or launch driver which MUST be noted on the Title line. Clubs participating in the Bayshore Cruising Challenge will have a unique stamp provided by KYC. Receipts need not be signed or stamped so long as they are imprinted with the name of the Yacht Club. Reciepts can be for any Yacht Club purchase - Ice, Mooring, Bar, Restaurant or Ships Store etc. Either receipts or cards must be dated during the competition time frame for each year (May through October).
Awarded to the vessel that completes highest quantity of verified triangles.
Longest Triangle Distance
Awarded to the vessel whose submitted and verified triangle encompasses the longest distance. Distance will be calculated by the cruising committee using the shortest distance between receipt locations that does not cross land or other non-navigable obstacles regardless of vessel’s actual route. Boating HD will be the tool used to calculate distance.
Bayshore Traveling Trophy
Awarded to the Yacht Club in the Bay Area with the most cumulative triangles among their membership. All submissions need accompanying receipts following the same rules as above.
