2017 Image RayAll sailors are invited to participate in the 37th 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. See Regatta website: georgetowncruisingregatta.com.

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 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 rating based upon sistership or similar hull designs and hull shape. Come and enjoy sailing on a beautiful day on the water to compete 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 the In Harbour Race at 15:30 at Two Turtles and after the Round Island Race at 15:30 at Peace and Plenty.

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 2/20/17. After 2/20/17 entries are $15 per race. All entries should be received by 2/26/17. A skippers meeting will be held at 11AM on Sunday, 2/26/17 at Volleyball Beach. Course diagrams and sailing instructions will be available on 2/24/17 at Regatta Registration and at the Skippers meeting and on the website.
