The 2016 Northern Century Regatta is scheduled Aug 19-21
Prepare yourselves for 100 (or 50) miles of epic racing in and around the San Juan Islands!
The N100 has historically been a race for double handers, but there is an option for fully crewed and a shorter double handed version of 50 miles. The race is open to all yachts whose skippers have completed the online registration process and have a valid PHRF-NW certificate.
For the adventurous sort doing the full 100, the course is very open to creativity with the only required marks being the Pt. Roberts and Hein Bank buoys. How you decide to get there is up to you, just be sure to round both on the port side. Finish line is back in the Guemes Channel in front of Washington Park.
The slightly more sane doing the N50 also have a relatively blank canvas for course selection with the only requirement being a port rounding of the Alden Bank buoy and the finish back at Washington Park.
The race will be broadcast for spectators via SPOT trackers, and a link will be provided on the webpage prior to the start. We look forward to having you join us on the water.
