The Townsville Yacht Club hosts a regular racing calendar for yachts each year. Competition for the Commodore's Cup takes place between late February and late October and consists of a combination of offshore and inshore racing. Races are held in the cooler months which is also outside of cyclone season. TYC Sailing Committee put together a race calendar showing both the the race schedule and types for races planned, with approximately 20 races held during the year that are points for the coveted Commodore's Cup.
The season traditionally ends on the last Saturday in October with a race to Herald Island, that is attended by racing, cruising, sail and motor boats to celebrate a successful year. With vessels anchored overnight, a BBQ is held on the beach before the return trip home on Sunday.
All vessels participating in the TYC Sailing Season are required to register for the season and nominate for each race they intend to particpate in. This can be done a 'bulk nomination' and the beginning of the season (for those that know they will be attempting every race) or as a 'race by race' nomination to allow skippers some flexiblity.
The TYC Sailing Committee is utilising the Race Management system SailSys beginning from the 2020 Sailing Season. Instructions for Skippers to set up a SailSys account and enter the Sailing Season races in the SailSys system can be downloaded from the following link SailSys for Skippers
