MOST RACERS WANT TO STAY CLOSE TO GORDON PASS in case of inclement weather coming up fast. Last year we started off GP and it worked out very well. No storms last year.

Start: All Boats start together.

Start Call: Patrick Evans will call the start times from his ship-to-shore.

Start Location:  At the mouth of Gordon Pass just West of the short green marker.

Turn: At Naples Pier and sail back to just West of the Gordon Pass short green marker.

End: Please call in your ending time to Patrick over ship-to-shore (72) if a close finish and you finish ahead of Sundance.

PHRF: Fastest boat wins. If two or more boats have spinnakers please feel free to fly them.

Any changes will be emailed to you on the Friday prior to race date or stated by ship-to-shore close to race starting time. Course suggestions are welcome.

If the weather is good we may enjoy two races.

Last summer A few boats dropped anchor off Keewaydin and swam.
