    CURRENTS: Be sure to check your tidal charts, they may be important to your strategy. Note too, that currents near Treasure Island are 15 to 20 minutes after max at the Golden Gate.

    PROTESTS: No protests allowed. Rules of the road apply. First qualified boat to finish wins.

    ALLOWANCES & HANDICAPS: No allowances for BBQ grills, TVs, excessive tools, supplies, cruising gear or overweight crew.

    REGISTRATION: Just let us know if you plan to participate in the Hoppe Regatta. You may E-mail your intention to participate to rphelon (AT) juno (dot) com, or call Bill Phelon (925) 254-8338. No one will be turned away if they don't register, but they might not get a start or a finish if we don't know they are there after all, the race committee may be busy with cocktails.

    AWARDS GATHERING: The regatta should end early enough to give everyone plenty of time to get to Encinal Yacht Club for the 6:00 PM dinner and awards gathering. (www.encinal.org)
