Racing–MacKaye Harbor Rendezvous

Racing schedule

10am - Departure

5pm - Finish

6pm - Happy Hour

Mackaye Harbor is located at the bottom of Lopez Island and has a very nice anchorage - 20

feet deep in sand and mud. Once we get to the anchorage, we raft up for Happy Hour then break

up the raft and re-anchor for the night.

The sailboats can participate in a Pursuit Race. Every boat starts at their given time based on

their handicap. (One can be calculated for you if you do not have one.) The slowest boat starts

first and the fastest last. Theoretically, we should all arrive at the same time. If not, the first boat

wins, etc. Sunday’s return sail will be in the same order. This is intended to be a ‘fun’ race - not

a fully crewed race. This event is scheduled on a date and time that the tide is with us to help all

of us get their in the best time possible.

Power boats may join in for the weekend as a cruised destination (or part of one) or they may

design their own race - predicted log?
