Thank you for your input.

It has been brought to our attention that the BBYRA name is being used in an email scam. The scam is requesting that members of BBYRA purchase either gift certificates or send a check to a vendor. BBYRA will never solicit payments of this nature at any time.                       Posted 10/01/2019

PLEASE make sure your BBYRA emails are not going into your junk/spam folders.  With every system update things like this can mysteriously change and you will not be getting your updates.
 Thank you

The South Florida sailboat racing community lost a great competitor, Friday, January 14th.  The Skipper of Sunquest, Wilfredo Parades.  He was a passionate sailor and racer ... He will be dearly missed.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Biscayne Bay Yacht Racing Association, we invite you to join our sailing season starting September 1, 2021, through August 31, 2022.

Entry Forms

New for the 2021-2022 season ... we are offering a 10% early registration through August 20th.  We have opened registrations to PHRF and Multihulls to the Handicap Fleets; and Beach Cats to the One Design Fleets.  Handicap ORC, PHRF, and Multihulls must have a current ratings certificate.   3 boats are required to have a class.  Please welcome all new members.

We do not accept credit card payments on-line.  Select the form you need (Handicap or One Design), save it to you computer, fill in the blanks, and email to  If paying by check, please mail to BBYRA. 

Its important to have certificates and ratings within the current calendar year, so US Sailing will renew certificates in the new year when they are available, on or about January 10, 2022. 

The renewal fee for 2022 is $100 payable to US Sailing, and current certificate holders will be contacted with instructions on renewal. Those who need a new certificate can apply at this link:

 ORC makes adjustments to their database on an annual basis and those adjustments are across the board for all boats.  If you are racing with an older certificate, then your numbers are not current with everyone else.  ORC is a great rating system but needs to be current to be fair to all.

MYC has cancelled January 16th BBYRA OD #5

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

Unfortunately, MYC is canceling tomorrow’s race.  Weatherunderground shows sustained winds at 29 with thunderstorms.  Other sites show about the same with lightning in the storm cells. 

So for the safety of bodies and boats we are canceling tomorrows race. 

Best regards,  Donita  MYC PRO
