If you are interested in opening another class, please complete the waiting list form here and when 5 boats come together we will open that class registration.

Multihulls are great!

We will have a multihull triangle course for the Hobie 18s, and Hatteras is a particularly fun place to race multihulls. Our courses are not suitable for boats drafting over 3 feet draft.

Monohulls are tough!

We have a shallow cruising ground so, if you are eager to race your monohulls, they need to be very shallow draft…less than 3 feet for this regatta.

Request a new class

Complete this form and be sure to tell us if you are able to bring more than one boat. We ask 5 in a class before we can open the class.
