Orcas Island Yacht Club is pleased to invite you to participate in the third annual race around Orcas Island. Held on the longest Saturday of the year, the race presents intriguing navigational challenges set against splendid scenic beauty and tall, forested bluffs of the largest island in the San Juans. We look forward to you joining us!
This year's race will be a Pursuit Race with the start directly north of the flag pole on Shaw Island across from the Orcas Island ferry landing. The direction of the race will be chosen by competitors the week before the race.
Given current social distancing guidelines, we are planning on
PHRF "shorthanded" (single/double-handed) and PHRF
"household" (crewed) entries. Racers will be expected
to adhere to Washington State social distancing
guidelines. Classes may be added or modified based on racer interest
and evolving social distancing guidelines.
