Regatta Sponsored By 

The Bill Cheek Memorial Turkey Regatta is a Pursuit Race. In this format, boats receive staggered start times based on their PHRF ratings, i.e. the slower boats start first, followed by faster and faster boats, with the scratch boat starting last. This eliminates all those crowds at the start. It also makes crystal clear how you’re doing against the competition: the first boat to the finish wins, simple as that.

Those who day pursuit racing is uncompetitive have probably not tried it..There’s nothing like watching some guy with 10 feet more LOA walking up on you from astern to get you tweaking those control lines. And if you’re the one with the extra LOA, it's hard to keep a straight face as you roll past those little guys on your way to the finish.
