The usual race to the island and back, and around Deer I. on Sunday

Camping at YC is rather primitive, but there is a bar, and lots of good food nearby. Let's just say that there's no great big YC building to get in the way of parking the boats and trailers.

Contact Dennis Furey, Commodore OSYC, commodore@osyc.com

Will there be a NOR and pre-registration? Looking forward to coming for the first time.

This race not only doesn't have an NOR, protests are not allowed...

This is the usual way of things. Please be advised that this notice is in NO WAY official, as the Commodore of the CCC is neither a member of nor on the board of OSYC.

So here's a sked for ya, if all goes as usual. OSYC reserves the right to diverge from this sked:

Get to OSYC on Friday. Set up your boat, b.s'ing with people all the while. Set up your tent or register at the hotel you're staying at. Hang out all Friday evening either at OSYC or at some local bar (some people do digress...)

Saturday morning, likely around 8ish, someone will arrive with breakfast foods and drinks. Registration will commence then. Please do the RC a favor and know your sail number and Portsmouth number. Entry fee is probably somewhere between 50-60 bux (that may change too).

Depending on weather, somewhere around 10-11 am on Sat, the first start will commence sending the slower rated boats to East Ship Island. Some 30 minutes later, the second start will commence sending the faster half of the fleet off to E. Ship.

When you get to East Ship, some 12ish miles away, you'll be finished either a bit offshore between a mark and a boat or between something on the island and a mark. It's a barrier island and the sand shifts, so this is definitely gonna vary. There will be food, drinks, etc. there at the island. While waiting for everyone to finish, you'll b.s. with folks out there, relax in the water, eat, drink, explore a bit.

Prolly around 2-3 pm, dependent on weather and the speed of the finishers, there will be a single start back to OSYC going on the same path you took out to the island.

Sat. night is hangout and party at OSYC or local restaurants/bars, more of the same.

Sunday am, around 9-10, there'll be a single start for the race round Deer Island which is just offshore. People will prolly all be finished around 1-2 pm and around 3 or so there will be awards.

People are welcome to hang at OSYC on Sunday night, doing some fun sailing and hanging out and leaving at leisure on Monday.

Just come on down and enjoy yourself. It will be fun.

Take Interstate 10 to Exit 50 in Mississippi.

Exit 50 exits to Washington St/609, go south, you'll cross a drawbridge, not long after is Hwy 90/Bienville Blvd.

Turn right/west on Hwy 90. Follow it till it ends at the bridge repair. There will be a stop sign and you have no choice but to turn left and dogleg onto a frontage road which is Porter Ave. There is an abandoned convenience store at the intersection.

Turn immediately right, or back to the west, onto Porter. It will meet the beach and make a hard 90' left turn. Right in that bend, next the bridge repair, is a small trailer with some boats around it. That is the temporary OSYC 'clubhouse'

Wow... an NOR... ain't THIS fancy! [Re: Joanna] #105890

Commodore_CCC well said. The race is a lot of fun. For those of you not familiar with OS, we are right next to Biloxi (the vegas of the south) or some similar monniker. You can sail, drink and lose money all in the same weekend! You are guaranteed to make friends and have a blast whatever your sailing level.

Hope to see you there

On Friday night within walking distance or a short ride into downtown Ocean Springs...

...to MOSAIC Tapas Bar, where they make the AWESOMEST handmade Mojitos on Earth...the food is good... it's a Hookah bar... and all of that is reasonably priced...

...at 8pm, Amae of the Sisters of Salome will be bellydancing and it's a good show!

Imagine that - to get prepared for the race on Sat you can spend Friday night drinking Mojitos and watching a bellydancer whilst puffing a hookah!

Namaste, y'all!
