There’s just over a week left before the outrageousness begins at the Sailing Anarchy ISAF regatta, and with 72 boats registered in two mixed sportboat classes and one-design – Viper 640, Open 5.7, Flying Tiger 10m and 7.5m, 5O5, Moths, and Weta trimaran fleets, the beat is most definitely ON. We don’t care if you register ten minutes before the warning – just get your ass down here for some great dinghy action as well as the largest-ever mixed sportboat fleets in US history. Check the entry list here to see where you fit in, and drop us a line if you need to know more. If it’s remotely sporty, we want you here!
Our schedule and NOR are finalized, with Thursday providing a great charity regatta and barbecue, Friday offering up the ‘Beer Can Worlds’ as a separate three-race regatta (for the sporties only) with prizes, free beer, and hilarious comedian Russ T. Nailz onstage after the racing, and Saturday and Sunday hosting the main ISAF event with up to 8 races for all fleets. Saturday night is the main off-the-water event, thanks to an awesome SoCal band and the presence of the legendary Blind Squirrel Rum girls, who we hear like to dance almost as much as they enjoy pouring shots down sailors’ gullets.
