On June 12 we have a special event: the resurrection of the PRSA Distance Race! This one-day, one-race regatta will pit all boats in all classes against one another in a distance race around government marks on the Potomac. Portsmouth Yard Stick scoring will be used to determine the fastest PRSA boat on the course. The NOR iand SIs with course options are posted below. Organize your crew and get ready for the fun!
The PRSA Fall Series starts this Sunday! Now is the time to make sure that you have your crew organized, that you have paid your PRSA dues, and that you have signed up for (or already fulfilled) your PRSA race committee obligations. Remember to review the Sunday Series NOR and Sailing Instructions as well. I look forward to seeing you on the water on Sunday!
The 2015 PRSA President’s Cup Regatta, sponsored by Annapolis Performance Sailing, will be held September 19 & 20 at Washington Sailing Marina, continuing the long tradition of competitive one-design racing started by the President’s Cup in 1934. The regatta will be sailed on the Potomac River on two courses. One-person dinghies (Lasers, El Toros, Penguins) will race on Saturday in the cove near Washington Sailing Marina (WSM) or off of the power plant just south of WSM. Other classes (Albacores, Buccaneers, Catamarans, Flying Scots, Lightnings, I-20s, etc.) will race Saturday and Sunday on the north course between Hains Point and Gravelly Point (with the Capitol and national monuments as a backdrop). Register now for the 2015 President’s Cup and view the NOR and other race information. Registration fees increase after September 12, so make sure to register and pay online before September 12 to save yourself a bit of cash!
Special thanks to Annapolis Performance Sailing for sponsoring the regatta and providing some additional prizes. This year we will also have a spectator boat – the schooner American Spirit – thanks to the generosity of DC Sail and the National Maritime Heritage Foundation! Make sure to tell your friends and family about this fantastic opportunity to view the sailing from the water on Sunday, Sept. 20.
