You are invited to join the St. Croix Sailing Club for our annual Dave O’Donnell Memorial Regatta and Spring Picnic!
Saturday, June 1st at 11:00 hrs
The Dave O’Donnell Memorial Regatta heralds the beginning of the SCSC sailing season and honors the legacy of our late Principal Race Officer, Dave O’Donnell. Dave served the club for almost 30 years, and was an enthusiastic supporter of the sport of sailing.
Due to the high river level and no-wake zone, the Dave O’Donnell Memorial Regatta has been canceled. However, the Spring Picnic will go on!
The Spring Picnic will be held at the O’Donnell’s house starting around 3pm on 6/1/2019. Dinner will be served starting around 4pm. All are welcome to join us and talk about sailing!
Event Format: Two races will be held on Saturday, June 1st at 11:00 hrs. This event is open to the general public! Everyone who would like to try out racing is welcome to participate. You are even welcome to bring your own boat!
Divisions: There will be a Jib/Main fleet (non-spinnaker), and two additional PHRF fleets: Division 1: Jib/Main Division 2: High PHRF Division 3: Low PHRF Note that boats may declare non-spinnaker for the series by announcing to the Race Committee prior to the first warning signal of the day. Non-spinnaker boats are not required to sail in Division 1.
