Clean Regatta!
This year Arizona Yacht Club has joined with Sailors for the Sea’s Clean Regattas Program. Leading up to, during and following this year’s BNAC Regatta, organizers will be working to minimize the impact the event will have on our shores and our water. This will include reducing our reliance on plastic bottles and cups, recycling and composting.
We are off to a great start, but we need your help. As a sailor in this event, your actions will be important as we work to reduce our environmental impact. Your choices will make a difference. Here are a few ways you can help during the race:

  • Properly sort all trash, recycling and compost into the bins we will provide so we can minimize the amount of waste headed to the landfill.
  • Clean your boat using water only.
  • Use the reusable water bottles included with your welcome packet.
  • Refill your water bottles at our water bottle refill stations located at our event site.

We invite you to learn more about Sailors for the Sea by visiting their website www.sailorsforthesea.org

Their website is https://pleasantharbor.com/rv-resort/ but do not make your reservation online. Call and let them know you are with the Buccaneer Sailing Championship and they will assign you one of the spots in our “horseshoe.”
You can also rent an RV and have it delivered to the site from Sand Highway RV https://www.sandhighwayrv.com/  They are offering a discount for the event so be sure to tell them you are with the Buccaneer Sailing Championship. Call and reserve your RV spot FIRST!

If you do not have a reservation in an RV spot, there is a park entry fee / overnight camping fee of $8.00/day (Vehicle with Watercraft. Add $2 for a double stack.)
If camping isn’t your thing the Hampton Inn and Suites or the Homewood Suites by Hilton are also not too far away.
