Foul Weather Race/Cruise

The Girts Rekevics Memorial Foul Weather Race/Cruise (February 25, 2017) is open to all yachts that have completed the registration process using the Anacortes Yacht Club on-line registration system.  The event is designed to support two types of participants - racers & cruisers; both of which need to register for this event.

For the cruisers the event consists of a trip from Anacortes to Friday Harbor departing at around 9:30am in the morning.  Boats registering under the cruiser category are not scored or timed and are not eligible for the event trophy.  For boats entered under the racer category the event consists of a race starting between R2 and the Refinery Dock in Fidalgo Bay, Anacortes and ending between the NW corner of Brown Island and the NOAA Weather Station in  Friday Harbor, San Juan Island - a distance of approximately 19.5 nm.  Following the race there is a dinner in Friday Harbor. Many participants stay overnight in Friday Harbor and informally travel back to Anacortes on Sunday morning. If needed, crew members can take the ferry back to Anacortes Saturday evening after the dinner.
