GULFPORT -- The Gulf Hunter Sailing Association (GHSA) will conduct its 15th Annual Hunter Cup Regatta and Rendezvous on Saturday, April 14, at the Boca Ciega Yacht Club in Gulfport, Florida.
The Hunter Cup Regatta is open to all sailors, racers and cruisers alike. Races will be held on April 14, with performance handicap, cruising, and fun classes.
The event will begin with a breakfast at 7:30 a.m., followed by a captain's meeting at 8 a.m. Boats will proceed to the starting area at 8:30, with the regatta beginning at 10:30. A celebration party will take place at 4 p.m., with dinner at 5 p.m. followed by the presentation of awards.
GHSA was formed in late 1991 as a conduit for camaraderie between owners of Hunter brand sailboats, manufactured by Hunter Marine in Alachua, Florida. GHSA has since developed an associate membership category for owners of other brands of boats. Based in the Tampa Bay area, GHSA boasts a membership of 80-plus boats.
