Jerry Pim Memorial Estabel Night Race
May 2 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PMFree
This is a FREE Race!
At the April 14th CMCS Board Meeting the club decided to give this fun race a try with one additional stipulation – any one boat may only have aboard people who are sheltering in place together.
NOTICE OF RACE
(Please pass this along to any sailors you know in the SW Florida area.)
Except it is a really special race. It’s a gathering of like minded souls, while being totally compliant with doing the right thing for Covid19 social separation.
When: Saturday, May 2 at 2:00 pm – NO AFTER PARTY
Where: a course set up around the markers out in from of San Carlos pass and Fort Myers beach – email will be sent Friday May 1 with the course.
Who: ANY boat that has sails! BUUUTTTTTTTTT!
Why: Because we are SAILORS!!!!
There are only two racing classes – single handed – and double handed. You can bring your kids (under age 15), and you can bring your dog, and you can bring anyone over the age of 80 – without penalty! (thus keeping the social distancing requirements)
You cannot raft up with another boat and are not allowed to run into other boats (thus breaking the 6 foot rule)
There will be three starts:
Those that don’t care about racing and just want to come out for a sail.
Listen to channel 72 for the starting instructions and count down!!
Mark Beauvois will be providing the committee boat that will officially start the race and keep track of finishes. We will score the two classes, single and double handed based on your normal WFPHRF. The third start will NOT be scored and is really a spectator class. Come and have fun.
