The 42nd Annual Shaw Classic
The 42nd Annual Shaw Classic is August 11. All boats are grouped into divisions depending upon their type, class and handicap ratings. The divisions include multihulls, unballasted centerboards, registered Performance Handicap Racing Fleet boats and cruising sailboats of all sizes and rigs.
The race starts and finishes in Friday Harbor. The course permits rounding Shaw Island either clockwise or counter-clockwise. A navigation challenge, currents, winds and projected boat speed must be factored into an equation to determine which way to round the island. After the race, winners will be announced at the traditional lasagna dinner.
Race applications may be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone form the San Juan Island Yacht Club at 378-3434 or downloaded from www.sjiyc.com. All entries must be received at the club no later than 8 p.m., Friday, Aug. 10.
