The Brant Beach Sailing Foundation and the Brant Beach Yacht Club are proud to host the 2017 KO Sailing/USODA Team Trials May 6-14, 2017
Welcome to the 2017 KO Sailing/USODA Team Trials Congratulations on qualifying to compete in this prestigious event hosted by the Brant Beach Yacht Club and Brant Beach Sailing Foundation.
We are very excited about being selected, for the second time, and are working hard to assure it will be successful.
Some of you that have been to BBYC before know that it is located on Long Beach Island NJ, which during the summer, is tourist destination. This regatta is being held in mid May this year, which we refer to as the off season. In the off season, many hotels, motels and restaurants, haven't opened yet.
We have prepared this regatta website to assist with lodging and when you arrive in May with dining and other needs. In the Visitors section, you will find a Realtor, Berkshire Hathaway, that has on their web site, many homes available to rent during this period. There are several hotels listed and all of them have in house restaurants. Some are listed as beach front but the recent beach replenishment also created higher dunes. If you want an ocean/beach view room, you will have to be on the third floor of either the Spray Beach Hotel or Engleside Inn.
In the Regatta Info section, you will find the NOR, a detailed schedule and companies who are offering charters.
We have also listed quality restaurants and other services that will be helpful when you arrive, including Causeway Boat Rentals located off the entrance bridge about 3 miles from the race course.
We will officially open the Club to competitors April 1 in the area just north of our tennis courts, see the site map in the regatta info section in the web site. We ask early arrivals in April, put their boats inside the tennis courts when they aren’t being used during the week for protection. Less than 2 months to go. We look forward to welcoming you and your families.
