    • If you have your own boat, the options are: Edgewater Ramp, Wendy Park Beach, Whiskey Island Marina, or Edgewater YC. If you are planning on launching at Edgewater YC or WIM, you must make your own arrangements with them.

  • What should I bring on my boat?

    • Water, sunscreen, snacks, and sunglasses.

    • Appropriate gear; it may be cold and windy; avoid cotton and wear layers.

    • VHF radios are REQUIRED for EVERY BOAT. Race Committee will be on Channel 69.

    • PFDs are REQUIRED for EVERY BOAT.

  • How long will the race take?

    • The Crib Race is approximately 7.5 miles long, and should take about 1.5 hours in a dinghy. Of course, conditions will be the deciding factor on race length. RC may shorten the course at any time.
