Big Boat Racing

The Commodore's Challenge Race

The 2024 Commodore’s Challenge is a 1 kilometer speed run supported by your GPS data. Measure speed over the ground. Fastest speed wins. Do it anywhere on Puget Sound. Do it during another race if you want. Make as many runs as you like. Multiple runs are encouraged if you get a really nice windy day. Two divisions: open and corrected with your PHRF handicap. Any wind powered contraption is eligible for the open division. Current PHRF rating is required for the handicap division. Stay away from commercial traffic.

The sailing instructions are available here: PMYC Commodore's Challenge Sailing Instructions.
