Race Calendar – All Events in Date Order
This regatta is ideal for sailors and crews who want to get regatta experience with friendship and fun at its core.
Boat will be their home for the week. Itinerary and daily races are organized by us, the hosts. The week will start with a Welcome Party, our reunion of old friends and an introduction of the new ones.
A day typically starts with a skipper’s briefing for some and coffee / breakfast and a morning swim for the others. We will have at least one race a day before arriving to our overnight destination.
As ever, we will fit in as much swimming, snorkelling, sundowners, socialising and dining ashore as we can.
A high point of the week will be our traditional Gourmet night on Thursday when everyone can rate each crew’s best dish (there’s a prize) and sing, dance and make music (live, if there’s enough talent).
