This regatta is open to boats that are properly registered with SCIRA for the 2023 calendar year and registered skippers in good standing for 2023. Join the Snipe Class.
The base registration fee to sail with us is $60. Register your boat and also select the meals, Hurricane Glasses, and shirts you would like for skipper, crew and any non-sailing participants. Sailors get discounted prices for meals and Hurricanes! The Friday Night Gumbo Fest, and the Saturday post sailing Sazerac cocktails at the Point Viewing Pavilion are included gratis for all sailors thanks to Snipe Fleet 330!
Please register early! Orders for shirts and Hurricane glasses must be placed by end of day, Sunday, October 1. Register for regatta meals by end of day, Monday, October 23. If you decide you want to come sail with us after October 23, come on! You can still join us, BUT there is a late registration fee, and you will not be able to order shirts, Hurricane glasses, or meals. But come sail with us!
Yes, we have shirts! But now, more styles! More colors! In fact, a plethora of styles, colors, and sizes! Remember to order early as we need to allow for processing time in advance of the regatta. Orders must be placed on the registration page no later than end of day Sunday, October 1.
