The YRA reminds us that the Great Vallejo Race is coming up on May 6-7. Entries close on Wednesday, May 3. "We expect 7 feet of water at low tide in the Vallejo Yacht Club harbor, so most boats should be able to get in and out without any difficulties. We have also moved the finish line on Sunday to deeper water, just south of the Richmond Bridge, off Paradise Cay. The party Saturday Night at VYC will be one to remember. There is a Captain Ron-themed party this year, with a Best Captain Ron costume contest, Mount Gay Rum mai tais, and live music including a steel drum and the Darrel Edwards Heavy Weather Band. Have a friend who doesn not race but loves to sail? Bring them along in our new Cruising Division!" Register on Jibeset.
The SSS Singlehanded Farallones Race on May 20 is now accepting entries. See Jibeset to register.
