DRIFTWOOD CHASE RACE 2021

The Driftwood Cup was created in honor of a long time Junior Sailing Instructor Bobby Horack, who taught for nearly a decade with his focus on fun, sportsmanship, and racing, in that order. Bobby taught us more than just sailing, he taught us to be kind, respectful and not be afraid to be ourselves. He loved being on Hull Bay and so we thought it would be fitting to honor him with a Regatta in his name.

We began racing in Turnabouts, single handed…of course, moved to 420’s and finally Rhodes 19’s, but we realized we couldn’t expand unless we change the format.

For 2021 we are going to a Chase model, where individual boats will be given a handicap and time to start, much like the Great Chase Race held each September. This race is meant to be fun and instructive; the rules are loose. If you want to have a blast on the water with fellow members, signup details soon. All Sailboats are eligible!
