October 12 & 13 – Coconut Grove Sailing Club, 2990 South Bayshore Drive, Coconut Grove
On October 12 & 13, 2013, theÂ title sponsor will be joining again to make theÂ Bacardi Columbus Day Regatta for the 59th year of this oldest regatta in Miami. The regatta committee has made changes, moving to some exciting new venues for this yearâ€™s regatta, steeped with tradition and continue to support the enthusiasm of the past. Come joinÂ the race in the greenest sport on the earth!Â The courses remain the same as the last 5 years so the Saturday finish / Sunday start is just north of Black Ledge, allowing sailors the easier option of returning shore side for the night or continuing down to Elliot.

Also, new for 2013, the Dockside BBQ at CRYC will become theÂ dockside dinner & dance atÂ Shake-A-Leg Miami. The party will commence at 1600 hours, Saturday, October 12, 2013 and will feature dinner, an open bar by Bacardi, dancing with a band and a famous Shake-A-Leg auction along with other entertainment â€“ food & sponsors to be announced.
