    Skippers/Boat Owners

    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-crew members" with Skippers who can accommodate extra crew.  Non-crew members will be placed on a waitlist.

The Nevada Yacht Club will attempt to accommodate all participation requests, however, the number of available non-crew member spots is based on the number of spots offered by participating skippers.

    When Fred's son was killed, he scheduled an annual race in his memory near Memorial Day Weekend and a full moon.
