2024 Season Nominations Now Open

Nominations are now open for the 2024 Power Time Trialling Season at RFBYC.

You can nominate here: https://client.revolutionise.com.au/rfbyc/events/view/232239/
If you have any issues with the process, please email [email protected] and we will be happy to assist.

Time trialling provides a wonderful opportunity to use your boat big or small on the river over the winter months.

Time trialling is a test of accuracy rather than speed, and requires that you arrive at checkpoints located a known distance apart at precisely the right time, based on your nominated speed of between 5 and 15 knots.

A one point penalty is applied for every second that a boat is early or late at each checkpoint, so that the boat with the lowest number of points lost wins the event. Prizes are also awarded for results on handicap weekly and there are a number of perpetual trophies presented on Closing Day.

It sounds simple but getting the perfect 'zero' score is deceptively difficult and you will find yourself developing your knowledge of the river and perfecting your boat handling skills to achieve it.

Events usually start at 2pm on Saturday and after completing the event, participants proceed to the Member's Bar for some well earned socialising, a bite to eat and announcement of results.

If you’re curious but unsure what is involved we have experienced time triallers who would be happy to host you on their boat to show you the process
