Join us at the first ever NCBJ sailing regatta! Challenge yourself as well as other groups in this one-of-a-kind sailboat race.
Following the last education program on Saturday, we will travel by bus from the Marriott to Harbor Yacht Club. There we will board an armada of small sailboats, each of which carries six NCBJ sailors, plus a professional captain. The captain will coach all aboard in boating procedures, sail handling, and navigation. The fleet will venture into San Diego Bay for an afternoon of racing, team building, and fun!!
A professional regatta judge will oversee the races, keeping official times and handicaps, and scoring the individual vessels on their race times and performance. We will sail a variety of craft, including Catalina 270s, Catalina 290s, Hunter 33s, and similar vessels.
Teams ABI and NCBJ have reserved their boats, and are raring to go! Come join the fun!
Groups may reserve an entire boat (6 persons), or you may come solo and join a group of your fellow bankruptcy professionals for this adventure. Plan on spending three hours on the water, enjoying the sunshine, sparkling blue water, and brisk breezes. Come prepared with sunscreen, sunglasses, a windbreaker, and your competitive spirit!
The bus will depart from the Marriott promptly at 11:45 am, with regatta briefing at the marina dock to occur at noon. Return to the hotel about 5:30 pm.
NOTE: If you will be departing from the marina directly to the airport for your early evening (6:30 pm or later) flight, then you may consider bringing your luggage with you to the event. We will arrange for storage on the bus, which will make a stop at the San Diego airport before returning to the Marriott. Even better… stay Saturday night at the Marriott for another evening of fun on the city!
