Event Information

Description
Description

An event for everyone… Over the previous years we have seen grandparents racing with grandkids, moms and dads racing with brothers and sisters, pets, friends and strangers all getting together for two great days of camping, sailing, eating. and dancing. No experience, no problem, we can usually place you with someone who does. No boat, no problem, we have plenty that you can rent. This event is for all boat types, big and small.

 

Registration Fees / Sailor: Jr (under 18) - $15; Adult - $25

Boat Rentals: Opti - $20; Laser - $25; FJ/420 - $35

Once you are registered, you will receive an invoice that you can pay online for the event.
