The 38th Annual Shaw Classic sailboat race is the high point of summer sailing activities in the San Juan Islands on August 9, 2008. All boats are grouped into divisions depending upon their type, class, and handicap ratings. The divisions include multihulls, unballasted centerboards, registered PHRF boats and cruising sailboats of all sizes and rigs.
The race starts and finishes in Friday Harbor. The course permits rounding Shaw Island either clockwise or counter-clockwise. A navigation challenge, currents, winds and projected boat speed must be factored into an equation to determine which way to round the island. After the race, winners will be announced at the traditional lasagna dinner.
Race applications may be obtained by calling Bruce Hall at (360) 378-7392 or the San Juan Island Yacht Club at (360) 378-3434 or downloaded from: www.sjiyc.com. All entries must be received at the club no later than 8:00 pm Friday, August 8.
