Other charter arrangement details will be provided in the forthcoming Notice of Race. For planning purposes only, please let us know here if you intend to enter and/or charter a boat.

4.2   All boats may be subject to equipment inspections by the official Class Measurer or a delegate to verify compliance with Section III of the Harbor 20 Class Association Bylaws, Rules and Specifications.

For entrants who do not bring their own sails or do not wish to use the sails that come with a chartered boat, arrangements have been made with Elliot/Pattison Sails and Ullman Sails to provide new, Fleet 1 compliant mainsails and jibs for a rental fee.
