NOTICE OF RACE
McCotters Marina is proud to sponsor the Pamlico Sailing Club’s Ocracoke Regatta, the longest running big boat event on the east coast because it's the most FUN! You don't have to be an accomplished sailboat racer to participate – you don't even have to be a blow-boater! The Ocracoke Regatta is open to any and all who want to spend a fun day out on the water, then get together to enjoy each other's company and share a little grub & grog in Ocracoke.
The Regatta will be governed by the 720 Rule, 2009-2012 US Sailing Rules and PHRF Rules. Further sailing instructions may be given by the Race Committee Boat the morning of the race. Monitor VHF channels 16/68.
