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).
Wolf Trap Light is not a mark of the course and may be left to either Port or Starboard.
Each boat is asked to bring an appetizer to share, and one “entry fee” noted above for the contest within the contest. Also, if you can bring a table or a tent, that would be great.
The club will provide food to supplement the appetizer table, water bottles, tasting cups, voting cups, paper towels, and trash cans.
As votes for the most inspiring brown bagged scotch are being tallied, adjusted cruising elapsed times will be determined, and the Wee Dram burgee awarded along with a special bottle to the boat with lowest adjusted time. There is no obligation for the winner to host next year.
