Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge July 17 — 20, 2014
For 20 years SCREWPILE has been a racers’ favorite regatta.
It is held every July, in the middle of the summer, and at
Solomons Island, on the middle of the Bay.
For this, the 21st year of SPLC, there are three significant changes made in response to racers’ comments:
• SPLC has moved to a weekend date — the event opens on Thursday, July 17, with Check-in and Skippers Meeting at regatta headquarters Holiday Inn Solomons. Racing, parties, and awards will be Friday, July 18 thru Sunday, July 20.
• The SPLC format has changed to include a Distance Race for all fleets on Saturday, July 19. Fleets may sail different specific distances, but all will finish in the Patuxent River off downtown Solomons.
• For the first time, SPLC includes a Strictly Cruis¬ing Class, which will race only on Saturday (Distance Race) and Sunday for a reduced entry fee. SCC boats do not have to have a rat¬ing cer¬tifi¬cate or belong to a club. SPLC will assign rat¬ings for the boats. SCC boats are required to have the USCG safety approved equip¬ment for the size of boat.
