The expense is frustrating. The entry fee alone is $650, plus $40 per non-crew member for the "social fee." My wife does not like to be on board for racing, and she is planning to lie on the beach during the day with a few other wives, then come out at night with us.

So we have to pay $40 for each of them to come to the awards and whatever other events are going on.

Then, as others have said, there is the cost of docking and lodging. I don't know what all that cost but I can see it exceeding $1,000 for all of us easily.

But we have never done one, and it looks like a fun vacation, so we'll probably do it. My wife is looking into lodging. If its really nuts we'll forget it, but we'll see.

I'll be racing PHRF, I think there are 6 PHRF boats listed on their web site now, not including mine.
