One-day competitive sailing event heads to Lasuen Knoll and back on Sept. 30.
NEWPORT BEACH — The final Newport Ocean Sailing Association (NOSA) race for 2017 comes to Balboa Yacht Club on Sept. 30, as sailors will take the helm in the upcoming 14 Mile Bank Race.
Races will head out to the 14 Mile Bank – aka Lasuen Knoll – and return back to the finish line in Newport Beach Harbor. The course specifically starts seaward and westerly of Balboa Pier.
A handful of boats were already registered about two weeks before race day; the 14 Mile Bank Race is open to boats in the PHRF fleet and current rating. Monohull one-design and ORCA multihull classes are also eligible.
The entry fee is waved to boats registered in both the 2017 Newport to Ensenada Race and 14 Mile Bank Race; all other entrants must pay $25 to enter. The race chairperson might accept late registrations (in extenuating circumstances).
Entry forms are available online at nosa.org. Entry forms can also be printed out and mailed to NOSA at Post Office Box 7485, Newport Beach, California 92658.
First warning signal is at noon; all racing will end at 6 p.m.
