2nd Annual Yellow Island Race
Join the Wooden Boat Society of the San Juan Islands for the second annual Yellow Island Wooden Boat Race, to be held Saturday, May 18, 2013, with a start in Deer Harbor on Orcas Island.
All wooden sailboats are welcome (boats built of other materials are also welcome but will receive no prizes). The starting line will be south of the Deer Harbor Marina. The marks of the course will consist of various islands and rocks in the area, as well as a race buoy located near the marina.
The race entry fee of
$15 per boat (and signed liability waiver) will be
collected at the skipper’s meeting, held at 9am at the
Deer Harbor Boatworks. The entry fee includes one
continental breakfast; additional breakfasts are
available for crew and spectators at $8, provided by the
Wooden Boat Society. The race will start around
noon, and will have a four-hour time limit. Those
without a current PHRF rating will have a temporary
rating assigned to them by race organizers. Non-racers
are welcome to relax and socialize at the marina. We
will try to stage one end of the finish line at the
outside float of the marina.
Colorful burgees for first, second, and third place finishers will be awarded at a potluck/awards ceremony at the marina the evening after the race. Participant burgees will be available for sale, with proceeds to benefit the San Juan Islands Wooden Boat Society, which seeks to coordinate wooden boat activities in the islands.
Discounted moorage for Friday and Saturday nights is available. Call the Deer Harbor Marina, 360-376-3037 to reserve a slip well in advance, as other boat groups are planning to be there. Plenty of good anchorage is also available in the Harbor.
Please contact Ward Fay (email@example.com ) or 360-298-2057 for more information about the race.

The society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a strong commitment to the care and feeding of wooden boats, their owners and those who appreciate them.
Volunteers and donations (of money,
