Next BBYRA Board Meeting

The next BBYRA BOARD meeting will be Wednesday, March 10th, 2021. If you have something you wish to submit for this meeting please prepare it in writing and mail to  BBYRA P. O. Box 331492, Miami, Florida 33233-1492.  OR you can email your document to info@bbyra.net .  It must be received the Friday before.
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



On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Biscayne Bay Yacht Racing Association, we invite you to join our
‘New Social Distancing’
sailing season starting September 1, 2020, through August 31, 2021.

Entry Forms

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 info@bbyra.net.  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, 2021. 

The renewal fee for 2021 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: https://form.jotform.com/72144318847157.

 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.


Please check the PDF Calendar for the latest updates in RED due to Covid-19

We have makeup dates in 2021 and are planning on providing a complete BBYRA series to all registered members.
