If the skies are clear on the evening of July 11, sailors in the 34th annual Solomons Island Invitational Race will have a spectacular ride down the Bay under a full moon.
Although the moon will rise almost an hour before the sun sets that day, it will be traversing the sky until moonset about 5 a.m. so that the racers could have at least some natural light under which to sail during the entire race.
Registration is open for the race, with starts available for all PHRF divisions including Non-spinnaker as well as both Multihull divisions. In addition, the Alberg 30, Catalina 27, J/30, and J/105 classes are expected to compete. In addition, a new Corinthian Cruising class has been added to the event, which is now part of a new annual series that began with the Miles River Race in May.
Beneteau America will award prizes to the top 3 Beneteaus in the Cruising or Corinthian Class, and the top three Beneteaus in the Handicap Classes in the Solomons Race. At the end of the year Beneteau America will award prizes to the overall winners of the Cruising/Corinthian Class and Handicap Classes.Read more...
