About the event
The 48th Annual Barefoot Open (BFO) October 7-9, is an event not to be missed! This is the longest continually running regatta on Lake Lanier. And this year... the Saturday night party resumes with Thunder Gypsy!
Two full days of racing for all fleets! The weekend will still be one of the best venues for lake racing, plus knowledgeable and experienced race committee and judges!
- Due to (relatively) new Sunrise Cove Marina corporate requirements, anytime alcohol is consumed at the clubhouse events, we must provide Hall County security. At a minimum of 4hrs/$400, 3 days of events would total $1,200. To keep the event affordable, we're only budgeting to allow alcohol on the premises for Saturday evening. Both the Friday night skippers meeting and the Sunday awards party will be dry (alcohol-free) events. Please respect that we need to abide by these marina guidelines in order to keep the regatta affordable. To clarify, it's not whether or not we're serving the alcohol, it's whether alcohol is being consumed at the event. Thanks for your understanding.
- Saturday Dinner Party Tickets are available for purchase online here.
- T-shirts are available to order online here for $25 (short sleeve) and $35 (long sleeve) - along with club burgees. Quantities are limited and remaining sizes will be filled on a first-come first serve basis. We will not hold or reserve a shirt without payment. We also expect to have a few extra of assorted sizes and styles to sell that weekend. First come, first served.
