LONG BEACH INVITATIONAL REGATTA

The Long Beach Invitational Regatta is designed to test your crew’s skills and knowledge as well as ingenuity and teamwork in a way that is innovative and enjoyable.

The events are based on those of other Sea Scout competitions and from requirements and basic knowledge learned through ordinary. But then, some is just off the wall.

For example, does your crew know how to drill? What if they can’t see where they are going? For that matter, how about team pulling blindfolded? What would happen to your Scuttlebutt time if you had to fill the barrel first? Will your general knowledge of seamanship, and scouting survive a game of Jeopardy?

Of course, we cannot guarantee that these events will be a part of the regatta in any given year. We strive to find new and exciting events to make this a different regatta each time you come.

The Long Beach Invitational Regatta is held each year on the second Saturday in March at the Long Beach Sea Scout Base, 5875 E. Appian Way, Long Beach, California.

More Fun Than Humans Should Be Allowed To Have!

The Long Beach Invitational Regatta is designed to test your crew’s skills and knowledge as well as ingenuity and teamwork in a way that is innovative and enjoyable. The events are based on those of other Sea Scout competitions and from requirements and basic knowledge in the Sea Scout Manual. But then, some are just off the wall.

As in the past, the Regatta intends to test your ingenuity and teamwork skills by presenting standard Sea Scouting events in challenging and fun new ways. Because these events are not presented in a way that you are used to, we recommend that you not spend a lot of time practicing. Just bring your imagination, creativity and good sense of humor for a day of fun, food and fellowship.

In the menu above you will find links to results and scores from last year. We can promise that we will not be doing any of those events this year.

For updates please join and follow our Facebook group. (Link below)

Registration opens at 0730. There will be a meeting at 0830 for all adults and Boatswains. In addition to the events, a barbecue lunch will be provided and the day will conclude with the traditional “Hell-Drill” competition.

Pre-registration is important as it tells us how many ships and people to plan for. One year we almost ran out of food because of the unexpectedly high turnout.

Pre-registration will be different this year. There will only be a Ship fee of $10. This fee will be due in cash at registration on the day of the event.

Please use the registration link under Forms above to submit your ship registration before Saturday, February 24, 2018. (No fees required at this time)

If you plan to bring your boat: The city has informed us that we cannot put any more boats on our dock. If you want to bring your boat please call the Alamitos Bay Harbor Master at (562) 570-3215 to make docking arrangements. Otherwise, we encourage those units that are able to drive to the event to please do so.

We look forward to seeing you there.
 
Come for the fun!            

Help!

In our effort to keep the Long Beach Invitational Regatta unique, different and original, we need new events. Unfortunately, we seem to be running out of new ideas. We need your help. If you have any ideas, please do not hesitate to share them with us. We have received many great ideas in past years and we know that there are many creative and diabolical minds in this program. Please let us know what the event is and how it works (please provide details). Remember, the object is knowledge and practical skills with an emphasis on fun. We hope to hear from you soon. Thank You.
