What is the Bay Buoy Boogie?

The Bay Buoy Boogie is Club Nautique’s own challenge regatta. This event will take place on August 14, 2021 and is open to all Club Nautique members! The challenge regatta is an opportunity to experience racing in a relaxed, casual manner. The event will be a combined rounding of bay buoys with the finish line near the entrance of Ballena Bay. This unique event will challenge old salts and new! All participants meet back at the CN Alameda Clubhouse for award presentations and after party food and fun!

We’re using the RaceQs app to track the whole thing, so we’ll be able to broadcast everyone’s progress live in the Clubhouses and replay all the excitement. 

Teams are encouraged to charter for the full weekend in order to take advantage of Friday afternoon boarding. All sailboats 31′ to 52′ are available for participation, so be sure to book your favorite early!

Registration Fee: $30 per person

TERMS: Only Club boats may participate. White sails only. All souls on participating vessels must pay the entrance fee. Chartering skippers must have a minimum of US Sailing BC certification to reserve a boat. There will be a handicapped “Pursuit” start. So, first to finish wins. Power boats charterers are welcome to participate as observers.


Here’s how to participate:

Pick your boat and crew:

Skippers may reserve boats and find crew later. Skippers must pay the entrance fee for themselves at the time of booking. They may organize their teams and use a charter-share strategy if they wish. Please remember that participation fees must be collected in advance for all souls aboard.

THIS YEAR’S COURSE:

The Full Course is approximately 19 miles, with the start line at Blossom Rock. Club Nautique’s Serenade will function as Committee Boat (no power sailing!). This will be a handicapped pursuit style outing.
