Harbor 20 Invitational Mariners Club Regatta

The Balboa Bay Club is bringing racing back to their Club, starting with a Harbor 20 Regatta.

This Regatta is open to all Harbor 20 Sailboats. They are encouraging all Fleet One Members to help them kickoff their first race season. All other Harbor 20 Fleets and sailors are welcome as well.

They are also looking a few Corinthian Spirited Harbor 20 owners who would be willing to have a BBC member race with you. Please contact Scotty Porter the club PRO at (949) 279-7575 or email scottyporternewport@gmail.com, if you can help out and have a BBC member crew for you.

Races will be conducted in the harbor directly in front of BBC. They have adequate docking for many boats before and after the race. The course will start and finish at BBC. The course will be as close to windward as possible towards “Z” mark then down to Lido Island Turning Basin and back. They will be creative, fun, medium courses to allow for two to three races.

Download the NORs here.

Entry Forms and Sailing Instructions will be available after July 14th at the Club Member Relations email Memberrelations@balboabayclub.com or at the Dock Master’s Office dockmaster@balboabayclub.com.

They are asking for a $30 entry fee. Entries must be completed by 1100 on race day.

    Dan O’Sullivan and I are sailing–hope to see you out there. I know this can’t be an official race because the Bay Club isn’t affiliated with US Sailing, but it sounds like fun anyway. (I’ll let the Bay Club know they need to join US Sailing if they want to have official races in the future.)

    We at the bay club are just starting at this. The bay club has a rich history of boating, and we are trying to bring some of it back with our new Mariners Club (club within a club) and are holding a couple events this summer.. We have no intentions to be a sanctioned yacht club, but we are pursuing US Sailing status for events like this. I would say this first event is a “quasi official” fun event with food and drink back at the bay club. So please join us, Btw, you don’t have to have a BBC member on your boat. It can be your own crew. Call me with any questions. 949.702.1900.
