Marco Island Yacht Club Evening Boat Race
May 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In order to complete your entry for the Gulf Coast race series, you will be required to sign Marco Parks and Rec registration form. This should be your first priority when you arrive.
PFDs are also required and although we have life jackets to borrow, we can not guarantee a proper size.
Capsize recovery knowledge on small boats like the 420 is important, so I urge you to watch a video. Go to Club 420 Association web, click Resources, click Save It, and watch the capsize video.
Sailing gloves, close toe boat shoes, and sometimes a spray top are recommended.
Unless you tell me, we will assign the pairings to match experience levels for all.
After competing the registration form on Wednesday, second priority is to look at how our 420s are positioned on the beach, and how the boats are left after sailing, There will be a team effort in boat launch and retrieval so this will help in speeding up the process.
Marco Community Sailing Center is the first right turn as you come down the Jolly bridge to Marco.
Finally, look for weekly emails on Tuesdays to confirm racing or to announce cancellation due to weather or manpower issues.
