Registration

All participants are encouraged to pre-register in order to ensure they have a spot in the regatta. If people register after all places are filled, they may be waitlisted. Registration will be available the morning of the regatta if there are boats still available.

To pre-register, email Fernando Leon, Racing Chair, with your name, and also the name of your sailing partner. If you register without a partner, you should let Paul know your preference as to being skipper, co-skipper, or crew, and you will be added to a list of those with partners needed. Once a team is registered, they can choose a sail and hull number to reserve. If no sail or hull is selected by race day, they will be assigned one.


Prizes

The team sailing the highest-placed boat using a club hull and club sails will have their names engraved on the Dan Rice Plaque which hangs inside the boathouse. Prizes will also be awarded to the top 3 skippers and crew.


Club Rules

No alcohol or pets are allowed on the grounds.
