The event will start with the Captain's Meeting at 11 a.m. at Figaro's where competitors will be registered and receive sailing instructions.

The race will start around 12:30/1 p.m. and end approximately 2 1/2 hours later, both in front of Figaro's.

While the race is on, there will be entertainment on the beach with the Corona girls cheering things up with games, music and fun.

Closing ceremony at Figaro's, where winners will be awarded.

Now you know what I know.
