$15.00 per boat—Each Entrant Receives a Budweiser Commemorative T-ShirtRACE

One size fits all.

This race is for everyone (cruisers, racers, novices, old salts, young salts, men, and women). This is a single handers race and only one person per boat. This will be a short race for fun, challenge, and perhaps a different perspective on sailing. Each boat starts individually with a Bermuda start based on handicap. If you do not have a handicap we will provide you with one. Anything and everything can be used on the boat with the exception of your engine. This includes, jib’s larger than what you are rated for, spinnaker, cruising chutes, staysails, bloopers, autopilots, etc. What ever you feel comfortable with you can use (or try to use).LIABILITY

Officials of the race and all persons directly and indirectly connected with the operation of the regatta shall be exempt from any liability for loss, damage, negligence, harm or injury suffered by a participant, vessels, or equipment which may occur during the Single Handers Regatta.
