What is the VRC Barbie & Ken race?

It’s a double-handed race! It was formerly known as the “Dynamic Duo Race,” formerly known as the “Ken and Barbie Race”

But I’ve never done a double-handed race before!

If you’ve never double-handed, here is a great opportunity to try it out! Come by the informal skipper’s meeting and get some pointers from others that have double-handed before.

What if I don’t have a Ken? (or a Barbie?)

Let me know and I’ll do my best to find crew for you.

Is there a dress code?

No, but there will be prizes for best and worst dressed, so swing by the Race Committee before the race to show off your costumes.

But I have a cruising boat and don’t race!

Come play anyway! If you don’t have a PHRF certificate, I can help you out with the application or assign you a club rating for the event! This is a great first event!
