Though racing a boat and crewing are encouraged!!!
For those that want the short version / explanation, well it is a sail boat race up Lake Travis to about Lake Way then back to AYC on Saturday ending with a big shrimp boil and beach party AYC close to the docks. On Sunday we race again and have a trophy presentation at the end of the day 4 ish on Sunday.
In the past the race was up to Logo Vista with a camp out / party and sail back the next day, but with lower lake levels, The party at AYC has proven more beneficial.
Anyway if you have a boat, think about registering and sailing in the race. IF you do not find some one that does. The race will be scored on you boats PHRF Rating. See link for rating info. You will need it to register http://offshore.ussailing.org/Assets/Offshore/PHRF/High+Low+Mean+PHRF+Handicaps.pdf
