2018 Slip to Ship Regatta

RULES - The regatta will be governed by the rules as defined in The Racing Rules of Sailing.

ENTRY and ELIGIBILITY - Open to multihull catamarans from 16-22 feet 

FORMAT - Two races on Saturday. Race One is from the waters in front of the Ocean Springs Yacht Club (OSYC), out to Ship Island.  After lunch and relaxation on the island, race two goes  back to where we started off at the OSYC.   A third race will be held on Sunday, typically around Deer Island but may change.  Detailed routes will be presented in the sailing instructions.   

Two classes, spinnaker and non-spinnaker. 

 FEES - The entry fee for all boats is $80 ($20 late fee).  Entries include breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, breakfast on Sunday, and two (2)  regatta t-shirts.  Saturday lunch is fried chicken and beverages on the island. Dinner will be a  BBQ w/ an OSYC club-wide member contributed potluck. We promise there will be enough food for the competitors, even if the wind is light.  Eat w/the club members downstairs, recount the regatta, hop in the pool, and enjoy the evening.  Additional shirts will be available for purchase.

Classes - To be determined based on registrations. There may be A and B fleets for sailors with different sailing abilities.  Compete with your peers! NOTE: It is YOUR decision to register for the A or the B fleet based on your sailing ability.   If you are routinely in the hunt for a trophy then you are not likely a B fleet sailor.  

FURTHER INFO - Contact the OSYC Fleet Captain, Joe Pocreva, at fleetcaptain@osyc.com 

NOTE: Competitors are encouraged to  familiarize themselves with the sailing instructions on-site, at the skippers meeting and the notice board. They will list what channel markers, etc to round. For you Slip to Ship Vets... it's going to be the same route, start and finish lines in same general vicinity.
