This event is intended for new members, sailors who are new to racing, and any racers other than the "top tier" of club racers.  Participants are encouraged to take on experienced sailors as crew.  The Regatta is open to club members only, and they must be current on their dues. Everyone skippering must have at least a crew rating.  Eligibility decisions related to "you're too experienced" shall be adjudicated by the Race Chair, but if you think you may qualify, you probably do.

The regatta will be governed by the rules as defined in the Racing Rules of Sailing 2013-2016, the rules of the sailboat classes participating, and the Sailing Instructions.  Co-skippering is allowed, but both skippers need to meet eligibility requirements. Any club-owned boat is eligible.

Registration

Everyone is encouraged to pre-register in order to ensure they have a spot in the regatta.  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 Fernando 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, the assignment will be first come/ first served for any unreserved gear. 


Prizes

Prizes will be awarded to all rookie skippers.


Club Rules

No alcohol or pets are allowed on the grounds. Children must be supervised at all times.
