Would you and your crew like to stay with a host family? We’re working to arrange accommodations for sailors at the homes of club members and local supporters. While we can’t make any guarantees and availability is sure to be limited, we’ll do our best to match you with a host family.

If you’re looking for a place to stay, please let us know. Send a note to with information such as:

  • Number of people in your group (ages, genders)
  • Preferred sleeping arrangements (Shared beds or bedrooms? Willing to sleep on floor/couch? Camp in the backyard?)
  • Any allergies? Pets? Smokers?
  • Any other pertinent information to help us match you with a host

As the regatta approaches, we’ll match registered sailors with hosts on a first-come, first-served basis. !
