Island Races

Halloween Island Race & Party

An informal race around the Harbor Islands open to all types of boats in the fleet, followed by our annual Halloween Party!

How to Participate

The online sign-up is for the party after the race. To skipper a boat in the race make a boat reservation for that day. If you need crew let the office know. If you would rather volunteer as crew (or you are a Student Member), call the office and we will try to get you on a boat. See below about how the crew list works.

Halloween Party Details

This is a great, informal day of racing followed by a Halloween party back at the Riverboat with an award ceremony for the Fall Series, Island Race, and BEST COSTUME- so get creative! The party will be catered BBQ, and we will be serving the usual, beer and wine as well as spiked cider. You do not have to participate in the race to come to the party.

Looking to crew for the island race? This is how it works!

  • Inform the office you are intending to crew. If we hear that there is a boat looking for crew ahead of time, we will put you in touch with a skipper.
  • If you do not hear from a skipper, arrive at 10am to put your name on the "Wants to Crew" List.
  • The office will then do their best to match up crew with boats that are racing. If they have an extra spot, you are welcome to join their boat!
  • We also hold a couple of boats as "crew list only" boats. If we cannot match up crew with pre-booked boats, we will ask any person on the crew list who has a full membership to skipper a boat (usually a Sonar or a J-24) depending on the member's membership level.
  • Sign up for the BBQ in the link above
