Register now for the Tall Cactus Regatta:
We call it the Tall Cactus Regatta, an easy-breezy tour of Lake Pleasant from the north launch area at Pleasant Harbor, meandering though coves and around islands, ending up in the upper end of Humbug Cove.
Once you arrive, set your anchor, and wrap up a well deserved siesta, the smell of an outback BBQ will be drifting over the anchorage, followed shortly by the club runabout motoring by to collect you for food, a bit of competition for the bean pot, and Mike Parker’s special secret rum punch.
This may be the year we get a Catalina 22 into First to Finish. Almost had it last year.
Saturday, April 27, 9am skippers meeting. 11am start. The starting sequence will be based on PHRF rating of your boat, with the highest numbers leaving first.
Three courses: Spin, non-spin, and dinghy will be published on the web, available by email, and at Lake Pleasant before the race.
Cost: $25 per entry. Each entry comes with one dinner. Each additional dinner is $10. Kids under 16 eat free.
Menu: Salmon burger, Pork Ribs, Chicken, Top Sirloin Steak, Salad, Rolls, Desert, Kid Food, and Drinks.
Entry and dinner purchases will be available at www.arizonayachtclub.org and you can enter just the race (and not order dinners) at the Skippers Meeting.
