SAN DIEGO — Racers will have a unique opportunity to buy their handicap up, or buy their competitor’s handicap down, during Southwestern Yacht Club’s 29th annual Charity Bay Race. The event offers racers a chance at payback for a great cause.
The event begins with a Friday Night Handicap Buy Up/Buy Down Party from 6 -7:30 p.m., April 1, at the club. At that time participants can strategically purchase time before the weekend race series. The $50 entry fee includes two tickets to the auction, barbecue and after race party.
Racers get two chances to buy up or buy down with the first being during registration and the second at the party. Crew and friends can buy boats up and competitors down. There is no limit to purchasing 3 seconds ($20) up or down.
All proceeds benefit ElderHelp of San Diego, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing personalized services and information that helps seniors live independently in the comfort of their homes.
