Ben Bates Shorthanded Series

For those of you who are weak on nautical terminology, a "hand" means a person. In the Ben Bates Regatta, shorthanded means double-handed: two people (even if they have four hands between them). To make matters even more complicated, by long standing HYC tradition, only humans count towards the crew limit. Dogs are welcome aboard and don't count against the quota. So you could have four paws and two hands on board and still qualify. Don't think about it too hard, just come on out and join the fun.

Round up some crew, and email to let us know who is racing.
