October really is the best time of the year to sail in Rocky Point, it is also when we host our annual division 2 regatta, this event is an extension of that regatta.
Regionally, the two strongest fleets are the 16s and the 18s. We need to promote the event in a way that helps ensure that we have good attendance - And the most boats, within the shortest distance, are 16s and 18s. We still expect to draw attendees from the rest of the county/N. America, but it is a big help to have a head start with a strong local/regional attendance.
