Q. I’ve noticed that on my certificate I have a CYOA Division listed, but that division is not always the one that I compete under. Sometimes, I compete against a group of yachts, but at another regatta, I’m in a different division. Why is that?
A. Divisions are provided as guidelines to Organizing Authorities; each regatta may, based on their individual traditions or due to a lack of entrants, place competitors in different divisions, so you may not compete against the same yachts from event to event.
