If you ever think you'd like to try racing
, there is a race
to Horn Island every year for catamarans. (someone is usually looking for crew also)
It's called the Horn Island Hop over 4th of July weekend and starts at the Ocean Springs Yacht Club. They have chicken and beer
waiting at the Island to enjoy before the 2nd race
which is the return. They also usually have a sort of beauty contest where they select a "Miss Horny Island" from the ladies present. Last time I did it there were 44 boats which was in 2005.
The fun thing is that the Sea Breeze is usually up for the return trip and it can get interesting since many boats are running spinnakers. Race 3 is on Sunday around Deer Island.
The also have a race to Ship Island over Memorial Day weekend.
