The RSYs received a filtered wave of materiel from all of the outlying FREs around the hub.
The process established through the RSYs allowed units to bring excess found-on-installation class IX to the yard and drop it off.
In the CMRE's case, most of the items being processed from the RSYs were going to either Sierra Army Depot in California, Tobyhanna Army Depot in Pennsylvania, or Kuwait.
The RSYs would then quickly ship the item via strategic air, or truck if it was on the local FOB, and deliver it to the SSA where the requesting unit would pick it up.
The RSYs provided a central location to send excess equipment.
Through a constant daily relationship, the RSYs redirected billions of dollars' worth of equipment to the RPAT yards to be returned to the United States.
Between December 2011 and December 2014, the RSYs processed more than 25,000 TEUs of equipment and produced more than 960,000 materiel release orders in SARSS.
The race started in a light but steady south-easterly breeze of 8-10 knots, with RSYS
race officer David Reid setting a short course of 14 nautical miles in view of the expected continuation of light winds during the afternoon.
Team racing resumed in 2001 when the CYCA defeated the RSYS, while the Squadron reclaimed the trophy in 2002 and 2003.
For those who consider their seniority a barrier to sailing One Design day boats, the final day's racing for the Kopsen Trophy was enlivened by the presence of Sir James Hardie sailing Foolhardy as the 2nd boat in the RSYS team.
RSYS teams finished second overall in the regatta just finishing 3.
Conditions for each regatta have been perfectly planned with RPAYC being very light, the CYCA a medium day and the final day at RSYS testing everyone's knowledge and technique.
