INTRODUCTION:

The Fellowship Cup was created in 2007, a combined effort of the Castaway’s Sailing Club and the Palm Beach Sailing Club, to encourage more offshore sailors to get out to race in a friendly competition between the two clubs.  The racing is not restricted to club members.  All sailors regardless of affiliation and skill level are encouraged to participate.  The Fellowship Cup consists of three series of race events, which are held throughout the year.  Each Series is contested and scored independently for individual prizes. The “Fellowship Cup” is a perpetual trophy, which is awarded to the club whose member boats accumulate the most points for the three series combined.  Fellowship Cup points are awarded for each finishing yacht.  This year additional points will be awarded to clubs for participation of racers in after race- raft ups.

Three different series consisting of nine (9) race dates will run throughout the year.  Each Series is made up of three (3) events (usually held one Saturday/Sunday/month).  Each event may consist of multiple races based on current weather and wind conditions.  Races are scored toward individual and Fellowship Cup awards.  Courses will be determined by the Race Committee depending on the conditions on race day.

There are three separate fleets:  PHRF (spinnaker), JAM (jib and main), and Multi-hull.  Each class will compete for class trophies and be scored separately.  On December 9, 2011, at a special dinner event, all three of the series awards will be given to individual classes and the Fellowship Cup will be awarded to the winning club.
