Screwpile Headquarters February 26, 2014.
This year we are adding a Strictly Cruising Class to the Screwpile. This announcement was overlooked in our last Latest News Column. Racing for the SCC will be Saturday as part of our Distance Race and Sunday, a different type of course that works best and produces fun for the participants.
You do not have to have a rating certificate nor belong to a club. We will assign ratings for the boats. You are required to have the USCG safety approved equipment for your size of boat.
Our goal is to introduce more people to sailing and one of the tried and true ways is friendly competition. The saying “If one sail boat is all alone in the area they are cruising if two are close buy they are racing” on the navigation bar above click on Entry Form notice for the SCC the fee is $99.00
You are more than welcome to attend our party Friday night under the tent we encourage you to so. Yes you will be give a bow number for your boat at the registration Thursday night from 5PM-PM at the Holiday Inn Solomon’s . At registration you will be given the hard copy of the Sailing Instructions, bow numbers a commemorative event flag, the famous Red Mount Gay Rum Hats and other “swag” courtesy of our sponsors. Please if you have any questions send me a email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301−862−3100. We have been working to add this for the two and a half years, waited till we got it right. This is a regatta run by sailors for sailors.
If you cannot sail with us this year you are still most welcome to the parties for sailors by sailors. Please come and join the fun.
