Wednesday Night Sail

July 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Sailing on the waters outside Oriental, NC.

Information courtesy of Towndock.net.

Sailors from (and near) Oriental head out on the Neuse for the Wednesday Night Sail Race. Boats rendezvous at Oriental Marker #1SC on each Wednesday for a relatively carefree race around the government marks. Just show up. The race does the “normal” US Sailing countdown. Just like a real race. This allows those new to racing an opportunity to learn and practice the start sequence.

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 78a for communications. Social at the Tiki Bar after the race. Questions? Contact Joe Valinoti – joesail1@gmail.com.
