2004 30th Anniversary C 30 National Regatta


Please join us in celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Catalina 30 National Regatta on San Francisco Bay, California.  Fleet 1, in conjunction with the South Beach Yacht Club of San Francisco, is sponsoring three days of racing, socializing, and fun October 1 through 3, 2004.See the attached  Notice of Race and Official Registration Form.


We plan to offer a variety of challenging race courses for your racing and viewing pleasure.  On Friday the course will be in the South Bay with the finish under the lights of PacBell Park (if the Giants are still in it!).  Saturday’s racing will take place on the “City front” offering beautiful views of the City by the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.  Sunday’s race will be a Bay Tour offering views of San Francisco, Sausalito, and the East Bay as well as our local islands.


Several activities are planned for this special event.  We intend to offer a seminar on local conditions so that visitors are ready for the Bay’s powerful currents.  Raffles and other games, as usual, will add excitement to Saturday’s dinner.  In addition, there are innumerable opportunities for exploration in and around our host city. 


We strongly encourage Catalina 30 sailors from outside the area to commemorate the 30th Anniversary Regatta with us.  Currently local owners are being canvassed to offer their boats for charter or crewing opportunities.  Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in borrowing a boat or crewing with a local boat and we’ll make it happen. Please fill out the Additional Items Form for all your requirements


I look forward to meeting and sharing some of the best sailing in the world with Catalina 30 sailors from across the country.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
