Were a week away from the First annual Southwind regatta. Super excited to see everybody!:))THumbsUp:thumb::D

I've got Multiple P.Ms about gas, launch, where the sandbar is ect... So ill throw this out there in a new thread.

ALL ARE WELCOME

We should have over 100 boats coming out. Yes the river rockets deal is the same day at Pirates cove.
the event is on the 21st

The Launch at McIntyre will be 5$ on Saturday. Its normally 10$. *** They don't Have Beer at the store there. Get it in town at albertsons***
They Have 91 octane gas

The sandbar is 3 miles north of Mcintyre on the left hand side, right before goose flats. If you don't know the river above that sand bar, i would suggest launching at mcintyre. The sandbars get a bit big and hard to navigate if you dont know them.

The cops are fine with loud headers and performance boats, If you do something stupid or out of line they will be on you.

Awards for best 18, Formula 1 T-deck, 19 Tunnel, 20 Cruiser, best in show and longest haul will be given out.
Cool stuff from b1 racing, socaljetboats, Robinson racing, Mcintyre mob and Mcintyre snob will be given out with the awards.
These will be given out @ 3PM

McIntyre snob is giving a 50$ gas card to the longest haul winner.
McIntyre mob has something for the worst Gel on the water ( its just for fun)

T-Shirts will be sold on saturday for 15 $$ starting @ 10 Am

Just use the K.I.S.S method Jake. People if you launch from Macintyre, when you pull out on the river turn LEFT and go UP RIVER till you see a bunch of boats on a sand bar and hang out with them. Pretty good chance this will be the Regatta. :party1:

What about the water level of the river? Is there a time of day/morning that it is too shallow? I don't want to get there early only to have to wait.

Generally speaking, the water on that stretch is usually up in the morning and goes down in the afternoon. Exact opposite of Big River, LL, everything above the diversion dam. This is something to keep in mind for anybody thinking of launching above Mac and boating down. Getting home could be interesting!:))eek:)) :badidea:

Friday is our low day, but there should be enough water to go out and have a good time.
