The 59th year of this oldest regatta in Miami. The regatta committee has made changes, moving to some exciting new venues for this year’s regatta, steeped with tradition and continue to support the enthusiasm of the past. Join and race in the greenest sport on the earth!

The courses remain the same as the last 5 years so the Saturday finish / Sunday start is just north of Black Ledge, allowing sailors the easier option of returning shore side for the night or continuing down to Elliot.

The first venue change will be the Friday evening Skipper’s Meeting and Packet Pick up. This will now take place at the Coconut Grove Sailing Club and will feature their Friday night Happy Hour.  Also, New for 2013, the Dockside BBQ at CRYC will become the DOCKSIDE DINNER & DANCE @ Shake-A-Leg Miami. The party will commence at 1600 hours, Saturday, October 12, 2013 and will feature dinner, an open bar by BACARDI, dancing with a band and a famous Shake-A-Leg auction along with other entertainment – food & sponsors to be announced.Trophies presented to the first three yachts in each class. New trophies are being designed for 2013. Memorabilia items available @ the regatta.Raffle ticket included with each entry packet for weekend getaway at the Mutiny in Coconut Grove.
Many other beautiful and unique items to be raffled at the awards party to benefit youth sailing organizations.
