Fall Race and Raft-Up

Fall Race
and Raft-Up

Saturday, September 16, 2017

Let’s kick off the fall sailing season with a great day of sailing and socializing on the water! The classes expected for this race are Spinnaker A, Spinnaker B, Non-Spinnaker and Bee Fleet. (Four or more boats make a fleet. We may combine fleets of fewer boats.?) Pack your lunch cooler. Because, weather permitting, after the race we will raft up with the committee boat, enjoy lunch and hand out awards.

If you want to participate in the day’s festivities but you or your boat are not a “racer” then we encourage you to sail with our “Bee” fleet. Click here to see what the Bee fleet is all about. If you don’t have a boat and aren’t normal crew already for a captain, then register as crew and we will all do our best to get crew on boats. If you are going to sail in the Bee fleet and want a ride-along coach, contact the Race Director.


It is very important that boats get registered online as soon as possible so that we can make sure we have a Portsmouth rating prior to the race. On race day all captains and crew will need to complete final registration which includes signing a waiver and release of liability and emergency contact form for everyone that will be involved on the water.


Everyone participating in the raft up should bring fenders for both sides of your boat and plenty of dock lines to secure your boat bow and stern to adjacent boats. Click here for instructions on how to raft up. You can never have enough fenders or dock lines, so bring extras if you have them

Continental Breakfast
