|Additional Regatta Information:|
This is the annual Sprint Race to the Philippines best known party island. Frank Pong of Hong Kong and UK Sails HK fame fell so much in love with this destination that he named his latest R/P-75 Boracay. Racing will be under the IRC and local PYS rating systems.
By popular demand the race to Boracay is back again. The Regatta Organising Authority is the Saturday Afternoon Gentleman Sailors in cooperation with the Subic Bay Yacht Club and the Lighthouse Marina Resort under the auspices of the Philippine Sailing Association. This is a Category 3 race (without life raft). There will be a welcoming party on Saturday 18th and the entry fee will be waived for boats that have completed registration by 18th January 2011. There is a free choice of route either to the West of Mindoro Island up the Verde Island Passage and through the generally calm patch on the North East corner of Mindoro or alternatively taking the route East of Mindorao Island with a probable long beat to the finish.
