Time Trial for Powerboats and Yachts Under Power

Time Trial for Powerboats and Yachts Under Power

The RYCT Cruising Committee is planning a Time Trial on 26 November 2023 for powerboats and yachts under power (coinciding with our annual cruise to Richardson’s Beach for a BYO BBQ).

The format is simple. The Cruising Committee will present a route around buoys in the Derwent, all within a few miles of the club. You and your crew will estimate the time it will take you to complete the circuit and your average speed.

Each boat will start from off Castray Esplanade at 1-minute intervals, in order of slowest nominated speed to fastest, and finish back at Castray having rounded a series of turning marks from near Government House to near Droughty Point. The crew which finishes at the time closest to their estimated time will receive a handsome prize!

Entry is via the online entry on the website and will cost you the princely sum of $20

Prizes are courtesy of our event sponsor Boat Sales Tasmania.

Come for an hour or the whole day and enjoy a family-friendly pre-Christmas catch-up. BYO food, drink, tables, chairs and sunscreen. Some of the Club’s portable BBQ’s will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own.

We look forward to seeing you there.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact David Bowker, Matt Pilkington or Nick Hutton.
