There are Feeder and Exit races Friday and Sunday respectively, and both round the marks PHRF and separate Cruising Pursuit race on Saturday. ( Word has it that a challenge will be issued between clubs for the most boats participating.) Couple this racing with a (SCOO) Low Country Boil on Saturday night and a (NSA) Bloody Mary Breakfast before Sunday’s Exit race Racing, partying, music: What’s not to like?

Volunteers Needed for:
– Mark Boat crews for both PHRF and Cruising races
– Starter/Finisher for the Cruising Pursuit Race
