This Friday and Saturday are Eastward Ho and the race back home. The format has changed slightly this year from what he have done previously:
Friday 8/28 – 6pm first start. This will be a standard race with our normal 2 division start. We’ll finish in New Buffalo and likely gather for a socially distanced post-race cocktail in the pavilion there. 1 boat from NB has already committed to sail down Friday to race back with us and there may be 2 more joining us.
Saturday 8/29 – Race with the New Buffalo Sail Fleet. First start is at 10am MC time/11am NB time. Similar races to ours. They set a couple buoys and we will race around those.
Saturday 8/29 – Race home from NB. This will be a pursuit race. Each boat will get its own start time based on PHRF. Slowest boat according to PHRF starts first. The first boat will start at 2pm MC time.
As usual, I will send out more detailed information the night before the race. Please let me know if you are planning to participate.
