Invitational means You’re invited

Some people asked how they could be invited after seeing the poster. Invitational means we are inviting sailors from other local yacht clubs to attend as well as local PT sailors. The name stems from a desire to share our particular location and style of racing with boats from other areas. If this idea grows, we will grow the event in future years. This year we will have some boats from Sequim and Port Ludlow. Please be on our best, most hospitable behavior!

Registration

Registration will be at the Skipper’s meeting. There is no registration fee for PTSA members if you RSVP by Thursday, June 24th. Non – PTSA members and late arrivals will be hit up for $10.

We need to know how much beer and pizza to purchase. Please use the online registration form at the end of this article or e-mail me with your boat name, phrf rating if we don’t have it, boat description and approximate number of crew who will be at the D dock party.

Skipper’s Meeting

9 A.M. Skipper’s meeting and informal registration will be at the Compass Rose on the water side deck at the Maritime Center. You can purchase coffee and goodies at the Aldrich’s Galley.

We will announce the start time of the first race at the skipper’s meeting, but it will be between 11A.M. and Noon depending upon weather (wind).

D Dock Party

Beer by donation and Pizza and other goodies provided by Stig and Steve at a D dock awards party immediately following the races (rain or shine).

Regatta Format

Special thanks to Myron Gauger and David Burrows for putting together a race committee

We hope to do three races of 1 to 1 1/2 hours duration. There will be awards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and a special race committee award. This is essentially a reiteration of our Friday evening format, but we have made an effort to invite boats from other areas.
