The Old Dominion Boat Club is hosting the first annual ODBC Cup Invitational Regatta on Saturday, August 20, 2016. Skippers and crew representing the U.S., Australia, Canada, and Great Britain are scheduled to compete in a series of one-design races from a starting line in front of the boat club. The regatta will also include PHRF boats in spin and non-spin fleets.
The Race Committee will run the races off the end of the dock (not sure yet if we'll use the North or South dock). This means the internationally-crewed boats and as many as 16 other boats will be jockeying for position to get the best start.
We intend to run 3-5 races that day, but no race will start after 2pm. This means all boats should be done racing in plenty of time for the Awards Ceremony and Cookout from 4pm-6pm. The Cookout will be open to all race participants and also to ODBC Members. Members will be asked to buy tickets in advance for $6.
Volunteers will cook hot dogs and hamburgers, and we'll have plenty of sides along with beer, soda, and water.
