Memorial Day Weekend, the beginning of summer, and the first SEAS cup overnight set of races. Traditionally, one of the best attended races, it has something for everyone. The first of three races begins 10:15 at Marmion Island, and proceeds up the channel, into Stephen's Passage and finishes at Graves Point. This race is generally and upwind battle up the channel, with a close reach past Pt Arden, finishing with some tacking to Graves Point.
The boats then tie up in Taku Harbor, for a night of revelry.
The start time for Sunday's race is to be determined by the skippers and crew based on exactly how much revelry was had the night before. The fun-o-meter can be read by determining how late the Sunday race begins.
