Welcome to the Great Pumpkin Race. This is a reverse start race, with boats with a PHRF-NW rating of 250 starting at 10 am. The long course uses almost all of our marks, and the short is just a slice of the pie. There are separate divisions for flying sails and non-flying sails.
All entry fees for this race are going to benefit the Ballard Food Bank.
We've made some calls and asked the Great Pumpkin to bring us wind for the now penultimate race in our season. Check out the SIs on our website for more information. We can't wait to see you out there squashing the competition!
Your event coordinators have put together a fun event this year, "an" amount of candy corn, pumpkin pie, and hot cider. We hope you can carve out some time to join us.
In case you don't podium in this race (or if you do and you're an overachiever); there is an extra chance to satiate your Halloween gourd...We're having a costume contest with a special prizes going to the boats with...The Best Boat (Crew) Costume, Scariest Costume, and a "Sloopiest" Slooper for the individual who really squashes the rest of the competition.
See you all on the water!
Please Join us for awards and celebration at the Ballard VFW starting at 5pm
