As you know I will be there and most likely Ken Haga will be too. Looks like Rick Adams has a schedule conflict and will not attend. Anyone considering this race that would like some info from a local you are welcome to contact me through this thread or pm.

To me the really great thing about this regatta is that you will be sailing to an island approx. 12 miles off shore and there are not too many places you can do that! It is an awsome experience for the first timers and never seems to get old regardless of how many time you have made the trek. I am hoping for a large turn out this year and hope to see all my sailing buddies I have met over the years and many new faces as well.

Hey guys. We are having an extra division of awards made. So, if you can put five boats together, you will have your own class! I would appreciate anyone who can give me a head count so that we can plan beer, chicken and food approprietly. Also, camping is permitted. Call or email me with any questions.
