Harbor 20 Ocean Race – Take Two!
Based on the success of the first Harbor 20 Fleet 1 Ocean Race (read about it here), another Ocean race has been scheduled for the Harbor 20s Fleet 1.
The Harbor 20 races will be held along with the Crew of Two and Double Dash races on Saturday, July 23rd. The Harbor 20’s will have their own start at 1300 hours. There are 2-4 short windward / leeward races scheduled and awards at 1800 at the SSYC clubhouse along with the Double Dash awards.
A & B’s will be combined into one class for this regatta. Between 2-4 races are planned.
The cost is $20 (does not include the tee-shirt advertised in the online registration).

Ocean racing in a Harbor 20 requires extra precautions and experience, especially if winds are strong or if there are large swells. The race will be cancelled if conditions warrant. Beginners are advised to have experienced crew if they plan on participating. Only Harbor 20s with positive floatation are recommended. A “assist boat” will be on the course following the fleet at all times to offer assistance. It is recommended all participants bring a portable VHF radio for communications with the RC and Assist Boat.
Not sure how to register for the H20 ocean race. I see the form for the around Catalina race
Go here https://www.regattanetwork.com/clubmgmt/applet_registration_form.php?regatta_id=3661 and select the Harbor 20 race from the “Select Your Registration” drop menu. And, select the Harbor 20 in the Class drop menu.
How do I know if my H20 has “positve floatation” (short of trying to sink it)
Stick your head into the transom area (where the electric motor is) and look forward toward the bow and you will see foam in all the spaces. If you see empty spaces instead of foam, you don’t have positive floatation.
