Registration is Open!

Register now for the 30th Annual Race!  October 15-20, 2019.

How to Register for the Race

Step 1 - Register your boat information

Boat measurement information is still kept in a separate database.  Please log into that system (separate credentials) to update any boat information and to provide us the details needed about you and your crew.  If you do not remember your login to that system, please send an email to  

Step 2- Pay the race entry fees and buy crew shirts

To complete registering for the race and pay the entrance fee, you must have an online account with GCBSR’s payment system. This is a separate system from the one the boat measurement info is kept in.  Click here or on the “Login” icon in the upper corner of this page next to the Give Now button. If you raced with us last year you may already have an account.

Once in that system, navigate to GCBSR Race Payemtn in the pulldown to pay for your race entry fee, any passenger charges, and to buy the race shirts.  Select the sizes and quantity you need. You don’t want to miss the parties and a race shirt is required to attend all in-port activities. Finally, please remember this is a charity fund-raising race. Please be generous! Any donation you make above and beyond your fees is 100% tax-deductible. We sincerely thank you in advance for your generosity.
