Charles River Open Team Race 2008
|Registration End:||27-June-2008 at midnight|
The 2008 Charles River Open Team Race will take place on Fri, Sat and Sunday, June 27-29. The Friday sailing will be optional, with people who race on Friday evening getting a later report time on Saturday morning. Once again high paced action will be featured on the Charles River, with expert race management provided by last year's champions (of pretty much everything), Silver Panda. As always, hospitality will be provided by MIT Sailing. We will use (up to) 36 FJs and 12 420s, enabling us to have 16 teams racing at a time.
This year's entry will be limited to high school and college team racers and others who have actively contributed back to high school and college sailing. These sailors must have spent a minimum of two full days to help run, umpire, judge, or coach at a college or high school sailing event in this academic year.
If you didn’t make the time in this past year and promise to help out at two events next year, the organizers will allow your entry. Look at the high school or college schedule and figure out which events you wish to assist with before submitting the application.
There is a field in the registration form to provide information about the event you assisted (or plan to assist) and contact info for the organizer who will be asked to verify your participation.
Saturday night join the racers at the "Grand Canal"; cover waived for all CROTR 08 racers & volunteers!
Take the T to either North Sta or Haymarket and walk down Canal St
