Description: The Hamlin Series is currently the premiere, regional 29er series in the country, consisting of four events between October and May. The second event will be a two day regatta hosted by ABYC in conjunction with the Turkey Day Regatta. For this regatta, the 29er High Performance Race Team will be capped at 4 boats per coach to ensure the best coach to sailor ratio, and will be by invitation only. All sailors are invited to attend a Saturday night, round table discussion before turkey dinner!

Housing may be available if arranged in advance. E mail firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about housing with a local family.
The Turkey Day Regatta features racing in many different classes, and the Yacht Club fills up quickly, so plan on arriving before 9:00 for any hope of parking near the club. Saturday night, the club holds a big Turkey dinner for all competitors.
