All fixed keel, multihull and centerboard sailboats are invited to participate in this event. There
will be no flying sails allowed. This is a LOW KEY, LOW STRESS event. If a keelboat does not maintain a
PHRF rating for this series, one will be assigned. Centerboard boats will compete in a modified and arbitrary
handicap system. Complaints may not be accepted. Entry fee is $20 for the Series or $5 for each individual
race. Prizes will be awarded and will be commensurate with the total entry fees collected.
All boats must report to the committee boat before each race. This is to ensure
that we have your entry correct. You will also be advised of your class, course and order of start.
: The races will be governed by the current Racing Rules of Sailing and the prescriptions of US Sailing,
except as modified by these instructions. Protests will be frowned upon, may not be heard, and decisions by the
protest committee will be final and not subject to appeal. The 360 rule is in effect.
: It is the responsibility of the skipper to provide for the safety of the crew and to have proper safety
equipment and to sail in a safe and prudent manner. We share the Gig Harbor waters with other boats, including
kayaks, dragon boats and stand up paddle boards. Use extra caution to maintain a safe distance from small
personal powered craft that often do not understand the nuances of sailing and sail racing.
