LET’S GO RACING!
2018 SAILBOAT RACES
In Harbor Race: Friday, March 9rd, 2018 @ 11:00
Around Stocking Island Race: Sunday, March 11, 2018 @ 09:00
All sailors are invited to participate in the 38th annual sailboat races. This is a FUN event for ALL sailors. Even if you’ve never raced before, sign up for one or both races, and show off your sailing skills or team up with another boat.
There will be a Multihull Division and a Monohull Division. There will be several classes, each with their own start, within each Division. The number of classes will be determined by the number of entries, allowing similar boats to race against each other. All boats will be assigned a rating based upon the PHRF or NEMA handicap rating system, so everyone has a chance of winning! You do not need to have an established rating to participate. The race committee will assign a generous rating based upon sistership or similar hull designs and hull shape. Come and enjoy sailing on a beautiful day on the water in a friendly competition against your fellow sailors.
Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd within each class for each race. Overall awards will also be presented to the top performing monohull and multihull. An awards ceremony and post race party will be held after each race.
Early registration is encouraged so the race committee can determine ratings and assign classes. Entry fees are $15 per boat per race, or $25 for both races if entry is received by 3/1/18. After 3/1/18 entries are $15 per race. All entries should be received by 3/8/18. A skippers meeting will be held on Thursday, 3/8/18 at Volleyball Beach at 11:00AM. Course diagrams and sailing instructions are shown in the Notice of Race appearing elsewhere on this page and also are posted on the Regatta Notice Board on Volleyball Beach.
The Sailboat Racing Chairman is Glenn Gustafson on SV WINDARA. Race Entry forms are available on the right hand side of this page and on the Regatta Notice Board on Volleyball Beach. Entries should be submitted to Glenn Gustafson on SV WINDARA anchored off Monument Beach or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Glenn’s Bahamanian cell phone is 1-242-524-1042.
