The O’pen Bic Intergalactic [Super Fun] Regatta: Next Thursday, July 28th!

It’s only a little more than a week away!  (Next Thursday the 28th is coming fast!) Have you registered? Last year was such a blast for kids and parents as friends and teammates shredded a fun course that involved squirt guns, capsizes,  a stand-up race, and the always amusing beach starts. (check out the video from last year above)

Send your sailor for a regatta experience unlike most others, as we remove the stress and crank the fun factor. Kids won’t want to race or even sail if it’s stressful and anxiety inducing. And many kids find this to be the case with crowded starting lines, confusing mark roundings and panicky capsizes and rightings… The O’pen Bics are fast and fun and the Intergalactic UnRegatta is the ultimate celebration of sailing with a friend, enjoying your competition and sailing fast on a boat that wants to GO!

Register your sailor with NBYA here and read the Notice of Race. Email us with questions. Come as a team: bring a sailor to share your boat (details below). It’s gonna be a fun one! Don’t miss out!
