How It Works

How does the Jacques Adam River Challenge Work?

Read the SI

Make sure to read the Sailing Instruction first.


  • Based on the information available on this site, determine if you should compete;
  • Register as a Boat Owner/skipper. This allows you to receive communications from the Regatta Chairs as well as update your information;
  • Download, complete and return the Release Form (if not already registered to race with  NSC and BYC);
  • Register your Boat. This allows the Regatta Chairs to ensure that your boat is eligible and to verify your PHRF handicaps if required;

Register an attempt

  • Check the weather forecast, prepare your boat and crew and Register an Attempt. This lets the Regatta Chairs and others know that you will be out on water;


  • Race the course you have selected. Be sure to record your times in your log and take some photos along the way. If you have a GPS recording your tracks, even better;


  • Edit your Attempt from the List of Registered Attempts. You will need to be logged in to see your previous attempts. Add a note indicating which course the attempt is for. Add a finish time, photos, GPS tracks and perhaps some comments to share with your fellow competitors;
  • See how you did in the Open and PHRF categories by checking List of Registered Attempts. If you were really good, you may even show up in the Top 3 Boats on the Home Page;

Spread the word!
