Fleet 32’s distance races on Labor Day weekend have been added to the Division 9 Championship Points Series! The dates are August 30-31 in Virginia Beach. The race will start at Albemarle Street off Shore Drive in Virginia Beach near the Lesnar Bridge with a LeMans type start. The route will take the fleet out through islands 1-2 of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel then back through islands 3-4. It’ll cover approximately 20 miles. The next day, we’ll reverse course and race through islands 3-4 first then come back through islands 1-2, depending on wind direction. Fleet 32 scores each day as a separate event: Saturday is the Version 2.13, Sunday is the Chesapeake Challenge. For Division 9 points purposes, we’ll count each day’s race as part of a two-race regatta.
The distance race format is a blast. If you’ve done one of these before, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, you’ve got to come give this a try. Since the regatta is open to all makes of catamarans, we won't count this one as an HCANA Points Regatta, however, it will count towards our own Division 9 Championship Points Series for class legal Hobie 16s. This regatta will be a lot of fun.
