Following is the Notice of Race (NOR) for the Mark Albury Memorial Regatta. Mark Albury was a Past Commodore of the Miami Yacht Club (1974) and this race was first held in his honor in 1991. It is a race for multihulls, as Commodore Albury was a noted innovator in catamaran racing. In the annual Miami to Key Largo Race, the Mark Albury Perpetual Trophy is presented to the first beach catamaran to cross the finish line with the best corrected time.
The Registration Form (RF) and Sailing Instructions (SI) can be found using the following link: http://www.miamiyachtclub.net/regattas/markalbury/race.htm.
The RF and SI are under NAVIGATE on the left side of the Race Page. There are a number of charts for the courses at the end of the SI, which take time to bring the SI up for your review. You may copy the RF, fill it out, and submit it to the Office in order to enter the race. The Office’s telephone number and email address can be found below at the end of the NOR. If you have any further questions, contact Jaan Roots or Donita Leavitt (see below for email addresses).
