Consider entering your boat in the Race!

The race is a wonderful experience: you compete among the best, enjoy the camaraderie of your crew, and arrive at a welcoming, beautiful destination. Typically 20-25% of the fleet are under the command of “first-time” skippers. These skippers report a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction having prepared their boat and crew to compete, and successfully completing the race.
To help you with the planning and preparation the organizing committee has established the Ambassador Program. First time participants can request assignment of an Ambassador to guide them through the entry process. The Ambassadors are CCA/RBYC members who have prepared their own boats for this race. They understand what it takes to compete and are enthusiastic to share their insights.
