2023 – 2024 GFS RACE ENTRY

Before you race in either a Saturday or Twilight series race at GFS you will need to enter your yacht online through the TopYacht Race Entry System (TES).

Once registered you will be able to enter events at GFS and other clubs or regattas.  

 Each Series must be entered separately –

             Twilight Spring and Autumn,

             Saturday Spring and Autumn,

             Twilight Summer,

              Saturday Summer and

              Down Harbour Series

 Please only enter the series in which you intend to sail.

            To enter your yacht for 2023 – 2024 –   Go to – https://topyacht.com.au/db/kb2/1703  

A help page for the TopYacht entry process can be found here: How to Enter a Sailing Event using the TopYacht Entry System . If your boat has joint ownership please read this.


Persons on board

Each time you race you must enter a crew list. No crew list will result in your yacht being classed as DNS.

POB lists are required to be submitted before each race. If you are not able to submit your POB list before the race, due to special circumstances, you may submit your POB list up to 24 hours after the race finishes.

Results published will be provisional up until this time.

Initial set up is via the TopYacht entry link – https://topyacht.com.au/db/kb2/1703

Once you have added a crew list you can update your crew from the following link – http://tymob.net.au/mycrew.php?evid=1703&sn=????     ???? is your sail number

Crew lists are deleted at midnight every Monday. If you enter a crew list before then for the following week’s races this will also be deleted.
