I’ve been pretty lax about updating the website, but for all who stumble through here, the 2014 Fort Stevenson Regatta is still happening. Here’s the tentative details.
Social & Rules Refresher: Friday, August 22, 7:00 pm: De Trobian Marina
Skippers Meeting: Saturday, August 23, 9:00 am: De Trobian Marina
Race Start: Saturday, August 23, Noon, Mouth of De Trobian Bay
Garrison Beach Party: Saturday Night, De Trobian Marina
Race Format and Important Details…
We’ll once again be looking at a two-race series with a course length somewhere close to 8-10 miles. It will be a timed race with finishes adjusted by PHRF handicaps. We expect there to be some transient space available in both the De Trobian and Garrison Bay Marinas, but it will not be gratis this year. Those who want to stay in the park should make arrangements through the Fort Stevenson office – (701) 337-5576.
The Garrison Beach Party…
It will once again be the Saturday entertainment for those who stick around. Tickets and food will be extra, I will try to have a few bracelets available for sale on the docks for those interested.
Kite Sailors Welcome…
We’ve had couple Kite Sailors reach out and express interest in joining our little event, and all we can say is awsome! The more the merrier. We’ll be working with some of the Kite Sailors in the in the coming weeks to create a race event or exhibition area in conjunction with the regatta. If you’re interested, sign up through the Enter the Regatta link and we’ll make sure your contact info gets filtered to the right folks.
