5th Annual NHYC / SDYC Islands Race

March 3, 2014
The Sailing Instructions are now available (also see Amendment #1 and Amendment #2)


Great parties, an offshore overnight race taking us around our own beautiful Channel Islands Catalina and San Clemente, wind (if it will be windy anywhere it will be offshore in March), a course that will test various points of sail, class racing where possible, easy and understandable ratings (think Hot Rum series), US based race logistics, first to finish and first overall historic perpetual trophies rededicated by SDYC and NHYC to the Islands Race, dates that feed into our next races and a Saturday finish/party so we all have a Sunday to recover.
