September 2018

Board Bash - 9/22/2018 - CANCELLED

As Hurricane Florence approaches we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2018 Board Bash Regatta. When Peninsula Yacht Club made the understandable decision to move their event from this weekend to "our" weekend the 22nd and 23rd, the conflicts were obvious. We regret that we were unable to find a reasonable solution and look forward to hosting the event in September of 2019. Entry fees will be refunded asap.


Thank you to all who had signed-up to sail, to PRO Ken Gorni and his crew,  and to all of the volunteers who were ready to get busy. We hope to see you all at next year's event.  There is the possibility that it will be a Sunfish-Sanctioned Regional Event.
