Sail the Sea of Cortez in the annual Tucson Sailing Club Fall Regatta from October 27 to 29, 2017. Tucson Sailing Club fall regatta

The Fall Regatta is an open water race around the islands in the large bay outside the anchorage and Marina at San Carlos.

Whether your boat is made for speed, or padded for comfort, and whether you’re new to racing or an ocean racing veteran, you will have a great time racing with the Club. All are invited to participate.

Courses charts will be distributed at the Captain’s meeting: Low and Spin Fleets will race the same course as last May. That seems to be the consensus of those surveyed. The First annual Fall Regatta Race to Pilar trophy will be up for grabs on Saturday. First to the Pilar finish leg will be at the Pilar mark on the leg prior to the finishing leg. No handicap adjusts. Pure speed to the mark. Cruising fleet will have the same course as last May but will be tacking to the first mark.

Registration for Tucson Sailing Club Fall Regatta:
  • Early registration, Club members – $55 USD
  • Early registration, Non-members – $65 USD
  • Late registration – $65 or $75 USD

Race package includes: one dinner ticket and race t-shirt. Remember to order more for your crew.
