After discussions with racers the Swiftsure International Yacht Race organizers have decided to establish at least two division splits in the Cape Flattery Unlimited Class of Swiftsure. Even more divisions will be considered if a large enough number of boats enter the Cape Flattery Unlimited Race.

 

Having boats more closely matched in their PHRF rating will make for better competition. Because boats with similar ratings are typically closer together, it will mean that the yachts will be racing against each other in similar winds and currents. This becomes especially important given the changes in weather and sea conditions that occur as the race progresses.

 

The Cape Flattery Unlimited Race is for yachts rated 39 PHRF and faster that do not wish to participate in the Swiftsure Lightship Classic which rounds a mark set on Swiftsure Bank in the mouth of Juan de Fuca. The rounding mark for the Cape Flattery Unlimited Race is Neah Bay just east of Cape Flattery.

 

Please spread the word among our racing friends.
