Re: race participation

Adopt a cruiser is a good start. Get seasoned racers out and put one of them on each cruising boat. Weds night series we get a great turnout but the weekend races are weekk. One of the best turnouts we have is a "mixed couples" race. You double hand your boat w/ a member of the opposite sex and it's an informal race w/ an overnight raft up at the end. You can bring as many people as you'd like but only 2 can sail. I'm sure you could modify the rules to 3 or 4 people crewing. The start is up to the boat. You can start between 1000 and 1030. Take your own finish time and then someone from RC reads the results.

It's a lot of fun and families, kids, etc. are encouraged to swim, drink, eat, and be merry. No one really cares who wins.
