The Sturgeon Bay Maritime Regatta will be held in the City of Sturgeon Bay, WI on July 28, 2012. The Regatta will be the kickoff event for a weeklong festival known as the Sturgeon Bay Maritime Week: A Salute to The United States Coast Guard. The City of Sturgeon Bay is a community with a rich maritime history and is the gateway to the Door County Peninsula. Door County has been voted as one of the most beautiful recreational destinations in the United States, and is visited by thousands of visitors every summer.
The Regatta has the enthusiastic support of the community, and every effort will be made to make the Regatta a great experience for all entrants and Regatta visitors. The Regatta is sponsored by The Sturgeon Bay Rowing Club, (SBRC) with the support of the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club, and the Door County Maritime Museum. A welcoming party will be held for all entrants and their guests at the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club on Friday, July 27, 2012 at 6:30pm. Following the final races on Saturday evening July 28, 2012, Stone Harbor Resort will host The Sturgeon Bay Maritime Regatta Community Celebration, with food and live entertainment from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
The Regatta will be held as a Sprint Race Regatta and is sanctioned by the US Rowing Association. All events will be raced over a 1000m course which will be located along the eastern shore of the inner harbor of Sturgeon Bay. This area of the bay is considered to be sheltered water and will not present open water conditions.
Medals will be awarded to race winners where there are at least two entries per race classification. The Regatta Director may reserve the right to combine age groups where there are less than three entries per race classification. In this case the race will follow the USRA handicapping system.
The following trophy will also be awarded annually: The Sturgeon Bay Maritime Cup will be awarded to the Club which has accumulated the most points during the Regatta. Points will be awarded in accordance with the SBRC Tully Point System which has been derived specifically for this Regatta. The trophy will be awarded to display in the winners clubhouse. A large plaque will carry the names of the annual winners and remain on display in the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club.
