Friday Night Jazz - Club ABYC! - Raft Up Reservations Needed
Spring is here and the ABYC calendar is mighty full. But, there is always room for a relaxing evening with friends at the Club. 

This Friday drop on by to Club ABYC ! The bar opens at 5:00. An incredible Potato Bar with toppings of bacon, sour cream, butter, onions, and cheese and a few other tidbits will be served at 6:00 for the bargain price of $10.

Rob Covacevish will provide live jazz from 6:30 through 9:30. Not a bad way to spend a Friday night! 

Also note, per Jon Robinson, that we are very short on people registering for the Friday night BBQ for Raft-up . This is one of Jon's favorite events of the year and he wants to make sure that everyone is planning on attending. His exact quotes, "Remember ABYC is the place to be!"

Racing Rule Quiz #54
About 15 seconds before the start four boats are approaching the starting line on starboard in a large fleet. The black flag has been displayed and rule 30.4 is in effect.

With 10 seconds to the start W (Yellow), now less than one boat length from the line, bears away and sails parallel to and just below the starting line. MW (Blue) bears away to avoid a collision, causing ML (Green) to also bear away to avoid a collision, which results in minor contact between ML (Green) and L (Red). L (Red) hails protest.

When the class flag is removed W (Yellow) heads up, starts. All boats start and finish the race, no boats do penalty turns.

Review rules 2, 11, 14, 64.1(a) and see if you can sort out the relevant facts, conclusions and decision.

The answer will be in the May Sou'Wester. Have fun...
