Viridian Sailing Center

Viridian Sailing Center is proud to announce our FIFTH Firecracker regatta. Join us for a weekend of racing at the home of North America's largest RS Aero fleet -- one of the hottest one-design fleets in the United States.

The regatta is open to the following fleets: RS Aero 5, 7, and 9. A fleet will consist of at least three boats. Fleets will be scored separately unless less than three of a particular fleet register. Fleets may start together and be scored separately. Starts will be at the discretion of the PRO and will be outlined in Skipper's meeting.

If you are not a pass holder, you can charter an RS Aero from the VSC fleet for a charter fee of $100.

Late Registration will be conducted on Saturday, June 26, 2021, between 0800 and 0830 at the Sailing Center dock. All sailors are required to check-in by 0900 on Saturday, even if the sailor pre-registered. Participants will receive a registration packet upon check-in.
