In 2005, Port Royal Yacht Club was honored to be invited by the Bay View Boat Club of San Francisco to host the first annual Southern California Plastic Classic Regatta. Sponsored by the Bay View Boat Club and run in the SF South Bay between Pier 54 and Alameda, the Plastic Classic has a history of slightly zany behavior…maybe that’s why they thought that PRYC would fit right in! Read more about the original Plastic Classic Regatta.

Vessels for the Plastic Classic Regatta must be of a design 25 years or before and constructed of “plastic” (fiberglass).

COVID-19 NOTICE: If you are having COVID-19 symptoms, which include fever, cough, and shortness of breath, have reason to believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 within the previous two weeks of the race event and/or are diagnosed with COVID-19, you are excluded from participation in this event.

This event format has been modified to protect the health and safety of all participants and the surrounding community. As such, there will be no social gathering of any kind before or after the event and event registration will be conducted online only to mitigate human contact. Event check-in will be conducted in-person on Friday (6/5/2020) between 6-8pm and Saturday (6/6/2020) between 9-11am. Only one person from each boat will be allowed in the check-in area at a time, preferably the Captain, and he or she must be wearing a face mask during the check-in process and while waiting in the check-in line. Those in the check-in line must wear a face mask and maintain six feet distance between each other. The check-in area will be disinfected between each guest at check-in. Each Captain is required to observe social distancing guidelines, as set forth by LA County Health Department, for his or her crew during the race. By participating in this regatta you acknowledge that you are doing so at your own risk.

Subject to the rapidly evolving guidelines governing the best-practices for re-opening, this race may be canceled or postponed at any time. Should the race be canceled or postponed, you will be notified by email and a phone call and will receive a full refund of your entry fee to your original payment method. We will be unable to refund t-shirt purchases; however, we will make arrangements for safe t-shirt delivery should that become necessary.

Let’s each do our part to follow the mandated social-distancing guidelines and get back on the water!
