the Sunfish Class sent out an email blast for the upcoming Harkers Island Sunfish Regatta (July 15-17) in North Carolina. I’ve seen pics and such for the event before – it looks like a neat and fun weekend!
If you’ve been thinking about making it down to North Carolina for a Harkers Island Regatta, this would be a good year to hit the road for our 15th annual running and extended party weekend July 15-17. Checkout a short aerial video clip. More details about the regatta and Harkers Island are on the MOBYC website. The three-day event kicks-off Friday noon with a practice sail around the island and dinner party with crab races, blender sports bar and a one-man Caribbean loop jam band. Saturday is the 10+ mile race around the island followed by a low-country boil dinner complete with steamed clam appetizers, video replay of race highlights, rum cake dessert contest, awards and complimentary Gosling’s Dark & Stormy bar. Sunday winds up with short course racing and Sunfish/boating gear prizes. All proceeds to benefit local NC youth sailing programs. Camping and some housing available in addition to inexpensive hotels. NOR is posted on the class website. Expecting to break the 60 boat barrier this year.
