BROAD BAY SAILING ASSOCIATION

Little Creek Sailing Association


Little Creek Sailing Association (LCSA) is a collection of BBSA members and crew who race out of Little Creek in Norfolk.  Each year, the group runs a series of Wednesday night races during the summer months in the Chesapeake Bay just off the entrance jetty to Little Creek.   Go to the Documents page for race documents including Notice of Race (with details on how to register) and Sailing Instructions.

New members can register using the JOIN US link. Be sure to select LCSA as an additional membership.  Existing BBSA members, who have already renewed, should log-in and select the MembersOnlyStore from the Members pull-down menu at the top of the page to pay their LCSA membership dues.

    Team:

    The BBSA Board of Directors, in an abundance of caution, has moved our 2020 season start date to Wednesday, April 15, 2020.  As an aside, Willoughby will be starting their racing season April 16, 2020.

    We will still have 5 series consisting of 5 races each, we just pushed the dates to the right. Please find below the new schedule.  If you already signed up for a date to be Race Committee (except for the first two canceled dates), your dates did not change.  Chris and I who signed up for the first two Race Committee Positions (Kaleidoscope, Wharf Rat) will need to pick another time.  The website, Notice of Race, and the Sailing Instructions are being updated to reflect the changes.

    As we all know, these are fluid times, and developing situations on the ground may require another reschedule.  About all I can say is “keep on keeping on”, or as we said in the Navy, “Standby to Standby”.  I appreciate everyone’s understanding during these trying times.

    Point of order, there are no officially sanctioned events under the BBSA/LCSA umbrella prior to 15 April 2020.  That being said and understood, individual boats can sail wherever and whenever they like.

    Appendix A

    A8 SERIES TIES

    A8.1 If there is a series score tie between two or more boats, each boat’s race scores shall be listed in order of best to worst, and at the first point(s) where there is a difference the tie shall be broken in favor of the boat(s) with the best score(s). No excluded scores shall be used.

    A8.2 If a tie still remains between two or more boats, they shall be ranked in order of their scores in the last race. Any remaining ties shall be broken by using the tied boats’ scores in the next-to-last race and so on until all ties are broken. These scores shall be used even if some of them are excluded scores.
