    Skippers, we need your help in welcoming as many new and current members as possible. In addition to your regular crew, we humbly ask that you volunteer any extra space that you may have on your boat to members hoping to participate in this event. NYC will match Skippers with "non-crew members" through a separate registration type. Thank you in advance for welcoming our members!


    Want to participate but don't have a sailboat? The Nevada Yacht Club will attempt to match "non-crewmembers" with Skippers who can accommodate extra crew.  Non-crewmember registration opens September 1st. Non-crewmembers will be placed on a waitlist. Preference will be given to new NYC members. Confirmation of your spot on a boat will be emailed to you the week of the event. The Nevada Yacht Club will attempt to accommodate all participation requests, however, the number of available non-crewmember spots is based on the number of spots offered by participating skippers.


    This is a "bring-your-own-beer" event. If you choose to drink, please do so responsibly. Each Skipper has the final say in what happens on their vessel. Please be respectful.
