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. The divisions assigned by the CYOA Technical Committee are provided as guidelines to Organizing Authorities; each regatta may, based on their individual traditions or numbers of entries, place competitors in different divisions, so you may not compete against the same yachts in the same class in all events.
