The Wee Dram will voyage to Cape Charles again this year. Note: You may start any time after 7:00am on Thursday, August 25, 2022. Bear in mind that the social is at 5:30pm on Saturday. The fleet is split between arriving Friday or Saturday. Some boats like to make it a longer weekend, thus the allowance for a Thursday start. 20 slips are reserved, so sign up early. Each boat is asked to bring an appetizer to share, and one brown bag bottle (“entry fee”) of their favorite Scotch Whisky (no 'e') for the contest within the contest.
As votes for the most inspiring brown bag are being tallied, adjusted cruising elapsed times will be determined and the 2022 Wee Dram burgee awarded, along with what remains of the contents in the winning brown bag, to the boat with lowest adjusted time.
This is a family friendly event, except for the brown bag judging. This a non-spinnaker, single headsail event. All crews are to overnight aboard. Please check fbyc.net for most current updates/changes.
Start: Each boat will start herself and record the time that the bow of the boat crosses a line between R #2 and G #P1, just south east of Stingray Light. Also known as E & F. You may start any time after 7:00am on Thursday, August 25, 2022.
Course: Wolf Trap Light is not a mark of the course and may be left to either Port or Starboard.
Finish: Each boat will record their finish time when the helm position is within 100 yards due west of G “1CC” Fl G 2.5s (marking the entrance of the Cherrystone Inlet Channel and Cape Charles Harbor).
