See the gray side bar for directions to BABA race sites

Show the race organizers you care about racing, and show up for all events regardless of the forecast. We've had many race days when the forecasters got it completely wrong. If you're not at the beach to see for yourself you're missing out on a fun day! Race courses will be set to match the conditions - we may have a traditional longboard course, formula racing, slalom, enduro, tag-team events or a combination to make the event fun for everyone.

Why Race?

Racing is one of the best ways to improve your windsurfing and sailbording skills. Race courses combine upwind, downwind and across the wind sailing around bouys. Tacks and jibes are performed to complete the course.

BABA shares the love with our Novices and Juniors - the most important classes at every racing event. If you've never raced, but are interested, come on out and give it a try. The Novice class is for first time racers, experienced sailors to newbies - the race course is a new challenge for everyone. Juniors are 21 and under - including experienced racers and newbies.

Kona One - if you're interested in starting a Kona One fleet in the Mid-Atlantic please contact Daphne for more information.

We're bringing new fun to racing in 2017. Stay tuned for more details to come!

SUP Sailors are welcome too. The Race Director will set up a special course if we have 3 or more SUPs with sails for a regatta.

Be sure you're registered on More_Downhaul to receive last minute race day information.
