Classic Wooden Boat Regatta

September 27 @ 11:00am

| $79.00

Participate in the National Sailing Hall of Fame Classic Wooden Boat Regatta. They have invited the Woodwinds’ to participate in the race in the “Spirit of Tradition Class” for the first time, as they have made this a new category/class.

The course is approximately 5.4 NM and takes place in the Severn River. It is a 3 lap race with pursuit style race. Each boat has a rating, and by the rating they will get a start time. The pursuit style race challenges the competitors to sail through the other race boats to win the regatta. This will be an amazing trip for photography (hint B&W or sepia tone) of these old, gorgeous boats.

They expect to have upwards of 21 classic wooden sailing boats. The smallest boat is 18′, MORGAINE a home built gem, sailed by Kristen White. The largest is WITCHCRAFT, owned by Dave Butler, the oldest is ELF, owned by Rick Carrion. Of course the Sandbaggers, BULL & BEAR will be participating. And every rig of sailing vessel will be represented- ketches, yawls, catboats and all other types of rigs. Many of the boats will be displayed on Saturday (the Rendezvous) are available for boarding at the NSHOF docks in downtown Annapolis.

The winners from last year are posted on the web site, www.nshof.org. The link to the Classic Rendezvous & Regatta is on the right side of the page, under “on site programs”.

This is going to be a fun, challenging race! Join the crew!
