The Friday Harbor Sailing Club will be one of 16 teams slated to compete Saturday and Sunday at the Roche Harbor Island Cup, April 6 and 7.
As many as 150 sailors from high schools across the region — Oregon and California too (a first) — will put knowledge and skills to test during the two-day sailing regatta, sponsored by the San Juan Sailing Foundation.
The regatta features a “fleet race”, in which “everybody gets a boat,” SJSC coach Dez Bridgmon said.
That means as many as 30 boats in the queue at the start line, with races averaging 8-15 minutes, depending on wind. Competition begin mid-morning on both days.
