Ahoy Sailors! Standard registration for N2E 73 closes on April 1.

Skippers who sign up April 2 through 8 will incur a $100 late fee. Registration officially closes on April 8 at 1700 hours.

With a flurry of entries in the last two weeks, NOSA recommends that skippers book boat slips and rooms at the Hotel Coral and Marina as soon as possible. Thanks to the reduction of COVID restrictions and the Mexican Navy offering landing assistance, we're excited that racers can disembark safely and enjoy Ensenada.

As additional restrictions are being lifted, options for social activities will increase in Newport Beach for packet pick-ups, with the possibility that festive Ensenada could reach yellow or green tiers by race day.

For those sailing the challenging San Diego course, our race partners at Silver Gate Yacht Club are anticipating some ability to offer food service and additional activities if health and safety guidelines permit.

For those staying in San Diego, the Best Western Plus has offered a group rate. (see

Dockage in Newport Beach and San Diego is becoming increasingly limited. Book soon.

"We've really made the best of a challenging situation and are pleased with the number of sailors planning to participate if for no other reason than the love of the sport and to honor this race's esteemed traditions," said Vice Commodore Administration Mary Bacon.
