Ocean Springs Yacht Club plans to host the 35th annual Slip to Ship regatta "Tradition" on Memorial day weekend come hell or oily water. We at OSYC are keeping a good eye on the oil spill and we are hoping the worst case scenario for the regatta is that we may not be able to sail out to Ship Island as scheduled. If this is the case we plan on having an alternate race course for Saturday but there will be racing, a raffle, camaraderie, beer, chicken, live music and tall tales of regattas past.
You can register on line at our website www.osyc.com
under sailboat racing. The late registration fee has been waived and a full refund is available if we are unable to hold the regatta due to the oil. Keep in mind that the oil sheen is miles off shore and no one will be asked to sail their boat in oil. Early on line registration is very important tool in planning a successful regatta so please register as soon as possible.
The date of the race is Memorial Day weekend (May 29th and 30th) and anyone who can stick around to Monday we may just throw in another day of buoy racing. See the NOR on the OSYC website for more details.
