In addition to the class trophies awarded for every race, a special Club to Club Challenge Trophy was started 2 years ago, going to the top scoring 3 boats from any recognized club or organization. The Bahamas took the inaugural trophy in 2015 followed by Charleston Ocean Racing Association (CORA) last year. Will your club take the honor this year? This year's new date and course changes have already gotten a lot of buzz from sailors from all over North America, the Bahamas and beyond. There is an early registration discount if your registration is received before June 1st (click here for Registration). Don't miss out on RTIA 2017!!!
