This is a fun, family-friendly pursuit-start race around government marks. The race is open to all boats in the CRAB Freedom 20 fleet and PHRF boats 20 feet in overall length, J/70, Alerion 28, and Cal 25s. We've just added a Harbor 20 class, and will add others if there is interest. North Sails has announced a special prize for the one-design class with the highest participation numbers. Boats without a valid PHRF certificate may request a courtesy PHRF rating.
In pursuit-start racing, the slowest boats start first and the fastest last; whoever crosses the finish line first, wins. Proceeds benefit CRAB, Chesapeake Regional Accessible Boating.
