On behalf of the Portsmouth Boat Club I would like to invite the Capri 14.2 class to compete in this year's Merrimac Memorial Regatta. We were lucky enough to have a Capri 14.2 on the race course last year. That boat took top honors in the handicap fleet. Here are the details on this year's race: Merrimac Memorial Regatta Saturday May 28th (Memorial Day Weekend) Hosted by the Portsmouth Boat Club The annual Merrimac Memorial Regatta will again be held in the waters of the Elizabeth River off of Portsmouth City Park in Portsmouth, VA. The regatta is open to all sailboats under 22â€™. Any 4 boats of the same class will receive their own start. The open fleet will be scored under the Portsmouth Handicap system. Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in all fleets. The skipperâ€™s meeting is at 09:30. The first gun is at 10:00. A Memorial Day cookout will be held at lunch.
