Wed Night Sailboat Race 5:30p
August 5 @ 5:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until September 30, 2020
Sailors from Oriental head out on the Neuse for the Wednesday Night Sail Race. Boats rendezvous at Oriental Marker #1 on each Wednesday for a relatively carefree race around the government marks. Just show up. It’s always a bad sign when sailboats are closer than 6 ft, so your social distancing is covered.
The race starts at 1730 GPS time . There is a warning horn at 1725 (usually) and again at the start. Which ever is more upwind, Garbacon or Adam’s Creek, is the weather mark, round the other as the leeward mark and finish at Oriental 1. VHF Channel 78 for communications. Questions?
