Food and drinks will be loaded on the boats ahead of time and contribution for supplying the boats will be determined based on actual costs.  (A deposit of $150.00 per person will be taken with RSVP.  Refundable if event is cancelled*)

To Sign Up please email your interest to Tim with the dates you would like to attend as well as your preferred method of travel: (Ie: Flyer, Monohull, Catamaran/combination)

* note:  This fee may not be the entire required contribution.  Mooring fees are expensive in Catalina (I think the big cat is $90/night) so additional contribution may be required on the boat.
