The CHOC Regatta is not considered a Fleet 1 Race. It is conducted at the same time as the BYC Sunkist Series Race #1 (which is considered a Harbor 20 Class Fleet 1 Race). Eligibility in the Fleet Race requires membership in the Harbor 20 Class Association. Participation in the CHOC Regatta does not require membership, so all are encouraged to enter and participate since it is a fun event and for such a great cause.
For those competitive racers that plan to buy new sails during this year’s purchase window, I am interested in a suit of used sails (main 2 years old, jib 1 year old) that is in very good to excellent condition but may no longer be race competitive. I’m a long-time, long distance class member that uses my boat primarily for family daysailing so brand new sails are not necessary for me. Prefer clean sails without stains and soil. Prefer jib with U/V protection. Need main and jib battens as well. Will require shipping to the East Coast. Recent photos welcome.

Color is Toast. Cover is three years old but has only been used half of one season and is in very good condition. I moved my boat to a more open mooring and felt the cover had too much windage so I haven’t been using it.
$375 including shipping from the East Coast.
