Sandy Bay Yacht Club’s Rhodes 19, Fleet 36, will host the 2006 Rhodes 19 National Championship on Tuesday, August 22, through Friday, August 25. The races will be held on the waters of Sandy Bay.
Last year’s Rhodes 19 National Championship was cancelled when the host fleet, based in Fairhope, Alabama, was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. This year’s Championship is a best of five out of six races to determine the National Championship. It is anticipated that there will be approximately 30 of these one-design sailboats competing for the National title.
The Rockport Headlands or the end of Bearskin Neck should provide the public with the best viewing advantage for the races.
