Stone Horse Yacht Club
2018 Opti Regatta
Hello Sailors and Families!
Thank you for registering for the Stone Horse Opti Regatta on Monday July 16th. We are very excited to be hosting such a great event, and we are looking forward to a wonderful day out on the water. Here are a few last minute reminders:
Sail Numbers: When you registered, you might not have known your sail number. Please make sure you have the correct sail number today and edit your registration before Monday morning.
Water, Snacks and Lunch: ALL SAILORS SHOULD BRING A REFILLABLE WATER BOTTLE TO THE REGATTA. At check-in sailors will be provided with snacks for his or her time on the water. When the sailors return to shore following racing, there will be a BBQ for lunch.
Allergies: If your sailor has any food allergies, please send along food for them, as we cannot guarantee our food will be allergy free.
There is no parking in the Stone Horse Yacht Club parking lot the day of the regatta. Car parking
is at the top of Harbor Road in the parking lot behind the Christ Episcopal Church. If that lot is
full, you can park your car at the public lot near Saquatucket Harbor.
You may not launch any powerboats from Stone Horse Yacht Club or Harwichport Boat Works
within Wychmere Harbor. You may launch a powerboat from the town ramp in Saquatucket
Harbor off Route 28. You will be charged a $10 daily use fee. If you launch a powerboat on this
ramp, you may park your trailer in the Saquatucket main lot.
Opti Trailer Unloading
We encourage all clubs to unload your optis the night before the event (Sunday July 15th) after
4pm. Green fleet optis can be stored on the beach (make sure to note the high tide line) and
champ fleet should find a space in the sectioned off areas of the parking lot. No optis are allowed
to be rigged or kept on the boardwalk down to the beach or the space alongside it. For those of
you who cannot unload boats the day before, you will bring your trailer down the morning of and
staff will direct you where to unload.
Opti Trailer Parking
No trailers may be parked in the Stone Horse Yacht Club parking lot. All opti trailers need to be
brought to the public lot AFTER the entrance to Saquatucket Harbor on Route 28. The public lot
is a grass/sandy area directly across from Gorham Road
