Spring Harbor Races

CORA Skippers

Join us for the Spring Harbor races on Sunday, April 2nd and Saturday 8th, and tune up your boat and your crew for the upcoming Charleston Race Week.  We are planning on running windward/leeward buoy courses, in a similar format to CRW, with an offset mark at the windward mark, and a gate at the leeward rounding.  Courses will be announced over VHF channel 73, so make sure you have a functioning radio on board.  We will run 3-4 short races each day, starting about 11:00, to give you as much practice as possible.  Our Committee Boat will be M/V Kismet on Sunday, and S/V Fate on Saturday.  We plan on setting up near Middle Ground on Sunday, and will make determination on Saturday based on where the Melges 24 Nationals are set up, so tune in to channel 73 early.  For the Spring Harbor races, we will combine B and C fleets into one fleet, which we will designate as N Fleet for this series only.  So we will start A, N and D Fleets for the Spring Harbor series.  These races will be socred PHRF Time-on-Time.  Please contact Rear Commodore Andy Guhl at aguhl@comcast.net with any questions or comments.  See you on the start line!
