Charity Regatta Cruisers

  • Sep 22, 2013 · 12:00 AM
  • Shoreline Yacht Club

The 27th annual Yacht Clubs of Long Beach Charity Regatta benefiting The Children's Clinic of Long Beach is September 22, 2013.

Shoreline Yacht Club is hosting the cruising class.  We are looking for boats that don't normally race to come out and have a little fun and 100% of the proceeds go to a good cause.  We've got an easy course laid out, and some big cruising boats that have already signed up to race!  If you know anybody who hasn't gotten their boat out of the slip in a while, this is a great opportunity for them! You don't have to be a member of a yacht club or have a PHRF certificate to participate!  If you'd like to crew on some of the big boats, sign up here or on our website and we do our best to get you on the water!  Crew are encouraged to make a donation to the Charity Regatta (see the NOR for details and the pledge sheet)

Here are all the details:
Charity Regatta Notice of Race 

SYC NOR Addendum

Sailing Instructions

Electronic Entry (for skippers)

Crew Wanted (want crew or want to crew?)

There is a burger bash afterwards at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club at around 3:30pm for participants.

The race starts at noon, but your skipper will probably expect you around 10am.  Details to follow.

    This was such a great opportunity. I couldn't have asked for more. Great people, good sails and winning the regatta was really awesome too! :)

    It was great to not only to be sailing but at the same tine contribute to a worthy cause! Also nice to touch base with some fellow sailors.

    Thank you Jason for posting this worthwhile event. It was great sailing for a cause in addition to the fun of the sport! Was invited on Dan's boat.

    Had a great sail on Bruce's Cat 34 (thanks Bruce) with the other Bruce and Michelle and Aaaaaarrrrlene. (that's how she said she pronounced it). We didn't win, but we had a grand time and Bruce was a great host. Also enjoyed the BBQ, but I had to leave early as I was on my motorcycle and didn't want to have "beer goggles" on my way back to Lakewood. Hope to see y'all again on the water, and big thanks to Jason for doing this MeetUp. Mike Griffin
    PS-I'm still looking for a ride (with or without a berth) to Buc-days.

    Hi Jason, I followed the address on the event and I'm at the shoreline yacht club house. Not sure if this I the right place though...

    Bowing out... got a ride on another boat.

  • Jason

    We got the boat back in the water yesterday, and our dock neighbor looks like he may be joining in the fun, so if you don't get on a racing boat we should be able to get you on the committee boat. Meet at the yacht club at 10am. Park in the pay parking lot, you are welcome to come to the club and see if we have parking passes, but I can't guarantee we will get any or enough, but will try!

    Have leg injury now, can't race, but make a great onshore cheering crew.

    Sorry it's been a while since I've organized a meetup. If you haven't already filled out the crew wanted form, please do so now. I don't have contact info for the people who RSVPed but did not fill out the form. We had some big boats cancel, so I'm contacting the skippers to find out how many we can safely take (Need to make sure they have enough PFDs on board).

      Hi Jason, I already filled out a form last week and haven't heard back yet. If you can please find me an assignment that would be great. If not let me know what I should do. Thanks for organizing this. I really hope to see you folks on Sunday !

      September 20, 2013

  • Jason

    If you were contacted by a skipper follow their instructions over mine

    September 20, 2013

  • Jason

    Yes angel we will put you on a boat. Everyone show up at 10am at the club. We will try and get parking passes but won't have an update on parking until tomorrow. Good news is our boat is in the water (just this afternoon!)

    I will post more details as it gets closer. We should be able to get parking passes for you and will include parking instructions. We are still looking for more boats--so if you know of anybody who hasn't been out of the slip in a while send them over!

    How and when will we be assigned a boat?

    September 11, 2013

  • Jason

    No guarantees who's boat you're getting on, but ours is big and can hold plenty. It just depends on who needs crew, no matter what you will have a good time, these are all good people which beautiful big cruising boats!

    Boating is a passion of mine... I enjoy being on the water but haven't been on water for a few years.
