 10. Entry Fees

Race registration includes both racing and social events as listed in the schedule above. Non sailing guests are welcome to attend the social events; fees are as follows

                                                                         Registration Fee

Singlehanded                                                $40 1 ticket included

*It has been brought to our attention that all competitors must be members of Sail MB and pay for insurance as stated in item 3 of the Notice of Race.  We have discounted this cost to you for Big Bird 2016 on a one time only basis.  The assumption that partners, spouses and dependent children are covered by the overall slip and membership fee turns out to be incorrect.  We apologize for this oversight and ask for understanding regarding the extra fee.  This is an annual fee and the 2017 membership application will more clearly reflect this charge.

Camping is not available at the yacht club.
