AYC Tri-Straits Series -- Smith Island Coming Up

Looking for a chance to get out on the boat and stretch your legs - this Saturday March 19 at 0930 is the second event in the AYC Tri-Straits Series -- the Smith Island Race.

The Tri-Straits Series consists of three races that start at the west entrance of Guemes channel -- the first to Lawson Reef in Rosario Strait; the second out and around Smith Island; and the third and longest race the club sponsors is out and around Hein Bank.  Each of these races have been carefully timed so that you can ride the ebb current out and the flood back home.

These are some of the most challenging yet fun distance race events sponsored by the club as they give you a chance to get out in some consistent breeze and some wave action.  If you haven't done it before, here is your chance.
