Border Run2 Five Platform Fiasco!
Based on the highly successful 3-Bridge Fiasco race in San Francisco, Border Run race organizers wanted to bring the same fun, excitement and challenge to Southern Ca. sailors that over 300 Northern Ca. skippers sail each year on the S.F. bay in the wintertime.
The 3-Bridge Fiasco is currently the largest sailing event on West Coast. Why? Because it is like no other race on the West Coast. But of course Border Run race organizers had to add a Southern Ca. flavor to the regatta to make it even more fun for So Cal sailors. See how the new Border Run2 will take racing to a new level of fun and competition:
1) Race Date: the first weekend of summer. June 21/22/23
2) The delivery ‘to and from’ Long Beach is part of the event, making the Border Run2 a three ocean race event for a full weekend of sailing and parties.
3) Skippers have the option to race one or all 3 races for trophies. Race one day or all three!
4) Variety! - Two races are pursuit starts (inverted) with one race using a conventional class start.
5) We kept the Entry Fees low...entry fees from $39 to $99 dollars for a 3-race event with 3 parties!
6) Everyone’s Invited from Sleds, multi-hulls, PHRF, Dinghy’s, Windsurfers and Kiteboards on two courses, one inside and one outside of LB harbor.
7) For skippers racing Long Beach Race Week the week after, the Border Run2 makes for the perfect ‘feeder’ race.
8) At the Saturday night Border Run2 ‘After Party’ in Rainbow Harbor at Gladstone’s, come aboard and preview the 70-foot trimaran ‘Tritium’ in their bid to break the current Transpac record.
9) And there is much, much more! Check the NOR’s for race courses, start times and venue.
So tell your fellow sailors there is a new race in town...a race that you won’t want to miss. The Border Run2 Five Platform Fiasco! Registration will be open May 25th and the SI’s will be up by June 12th.
See you on the water!
