Bring your people together like never before…
With the best that San Diego has to offer, Harbor Sailboats’ 40 years of experience will provide a fun and exciting afternoon of yachting on Southern California’s largest most beautiful bay.
A sailing regatta on the San Diego Bay is a great way to bring your people together and reward hard working employees with the experience of a lifetime.
The Sailing Regatta
The Regatta is designed for everyone, sailors and non-sailors alike. Previous sailing experience is not required and physical condition is never an issue, it’s about teamwork and a desire to win! Comfortable seating is available in a protected cockpit so no one gets wet! Sailing is done on the flat protected waters of San Diego’s stunning bay. Sunny and 75 degree temperatures allow for year round sailing.
Our friendly staff will greet you on the large deck overlooking the marina. After a briefing on the day’s itinerary, we will organize everyone into groups of six and introduce each group to their U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain. Your captain will provide a safety orientation, assign crew positions and demonstrate how to work together as a team and win!
All yachts will proceed to the starting area to check-in with the race committee. Each yacht will have a copy of the race course, starting sequence, times and sailing terminology.
Thirty minutes will be allotted to practice crew positions and work together as a team before the start of the race. Using horns and flags the race committee initiates the countdown to start and the race officially begins. A rating system allows for handicapping so all are equal when judged at the finish. Total racing time is typically 2.5 hours and can be adjusted to meet your schedule. There’s plenty of action, tacking upwind, rounding the marks and running downwind. Before returning to the dock for the awards celebration, each yacht will have the duration of the regatta to pleasure sail and explore the bay.
