August 5-6 is the second double-handed event of the Triple Crown series!   

Not only is this one of the most challenging races with two on the crew, it also makes for a fun cruise event for those who want to do a summer sail with a dash of competitive spirit.  The STYC will throw a catered party at the gazebo and lawn adjacent to the docks. The renowned culinary offerings from Susanne's Bakery will be served (stay tuned for menu) as well as an assortment of beverages, including.. of course... BEER.  Plus prizes!          

Moorage space at Arabella's Landing is limited ,so registered early to ensure a spot!  

**Important to note about Registration and Moorage**

Arabella's Landing is full so registrants will need to identify own moorage moving forward.  
Please feel free look into Gig Harbor Marina, or other local marinas.
Anchoring at the N/NE end of the harbor as well as the City dock are both open to the public and first come/first serve.
But please do check it out sign up!  We'd love to see you down there!!!

  • During registration please include your boat length, including overhangs such as pulpit, sprit, etc, and we will arrange moorage at Arabella's Landing... 
  • You will however be responsible for your moorage payment upon arrival at the marina, it's not part of the race fee  (dinner, beer, wine, prizes are part of the race fee, just not moorage for DTS).  PLEASE DO NOT CALL ARABELLA'S LANDING, WE ARE HANDLING COMMUNICATIONS. 
  • We will provide you a slip assignment at the Skipper's meeting and you be able to call in for help/directions docking.  (Arabella's Landing kindly does boat Tetris for us and helps us all fit in)
  • IF FOR SOME REASON YOU MAKE YOUR OWN MOORAGE ARRANGEMENTS PLEASE LET US KNOW...  email the event coordinator at m.mathison@live.com.  Please do not call, thankyou. 

Stay tuned for more information, and contact us if you have any questions.
