SORC Social Distance Race
Published on June 8th, 2020
As event organizers navigate their local health restrictions, for some areas that means participation is permitted only with same household crew while other areas focus on group size.
On June 27, the SORC Social Distance Race will offer rating racing along a 21nm course around Key Biscayne in Miami, FL. A pursuit start will meet the mandate that boats must remain more than 50 feet apart, and participants must follow the crew capacity limits based on boat length:
• Boats less than 25 feet: 4 adults max. plus children 17 and under; max. of 8 people.
• Boats 25 to 36 feet: 6 adults max. plus children 17 and under; max. of 8 people.
• Boats greater than 36 feet: 8 adults max. plus children 17 and under; max. of 10 people.
Initially scheduled for May 24, the storm that became Tropical Storm Arthur caused a postponement to the week after Father’s Day.
