The discount entry deadline is Wednesday for Alamitos Bay Yacht Club's annual Memorial Day Regatta for more than 100 small boats this weekend.

Competitors may file online until 4 p.m. Friday and in person later. Those registering online through Wednesday will receive a $10 discount.

The event is the first of ABYC's traditional holiday regattas for small boats from San Diego to San Francisco and beyond, to be followed by the Fourth of July Regatta in early summer, preceding the Labor Day Regatta in September and Turkey Day for Thanksgiving in November.

Racing is scheduled to start at noon Saturday and Sunday, conditions permitting. The larger classes, including Cal 20, Viper 640, Laser, Laser Radial, Etchells, Finn and Mercury, will race outside in Long Beach Harbor; the smaller boats, including Lido 14s and Naples Sabots, will race inside on Alamitos Bay.

Also, kiteboards will race Saturday only outside off the beach starting at 1:30 p.m.

Weekend forecasts are for ideal conditions, with low double-digit breeze from south-southwest under sunny skies in about 70 degrees.
