You will miss the boat if you are late!!
Registration is full for the season-ending Boat-to-Beach race on August 31 but we have a waiting list for anyone who still wishes to participate. To qualify, you will have to swim three 1k’s and/or 1 mile anytime throughout the Reef & Run season. It’s $40 for the boat ride, race to East Beach, post-race buffet, and swimmer-only raffle. Sign-ups can be made at any of the remaining weekly Reef & Run events at East Beach.
Boat to Beach Swim Check-In
Check-in at Sea Landing and starts at 5 p.m. The boat will leave promptly at 6 p.m. If you are late, you will miss the boat and the race. If you still have not paid for your entry, please bring $40 cash or personal check to Sea Landing for check-in.
Personal Items on the Boat
We will have trash bags (NOT dry bags) to transport MINIMAL clothing and personal items from the boat into East Beach on paddle boards. Please no backpacks or duffel bags. I will not let you on board the boat with a big bag. (Think: shorts, flip-flops, t-shirt in a grocery bag).
Things can possibly get wet during the transport, so no important items please. We will NOT be responsible for wet cell phones. The trash bags will not be delivered to the beach until AFTER the race is completed, so do not put any important items in the bags (like keys you need to get into your car). You can drop off all your items that you need for the after party at the Bathhouse during the day.
Post-Race Check-In at East Beach Grill
The boat will be leaving Sea Landing, but we WILL NOT be returning to Sea Landing. You will be swimming in to East Beach and checking in again, post-swim after your hot showers, at the Reef and Run table at the East Beach Grill to get your meal ticket, beer tickets (or hot coco) and swimmer-only raffle.
Transportation to Sea Landing ~ Post-Race Clothing / Shower Items
Reef & Run will NOT be providing transportation from East Beach to Sea Landing. We suggest you coordinate a carpool with other Boat to Beach participants to leave a car at East Beach and your warm, post-race clothes and shower necessities at the finish site. The lobby and desk at the Bathhouse will be monitored all day and you can drop off your post-race needs anytime throughout the day.
Friends, Family and Supporters Welcome at Post-Race Party
The post-race party and East Beach Grill BBQ is open to all friends, family and R&R supporters. Stop by the Reef & Run post-race check-in table and purchase a party ticket for $22 which includes BBQ buffet and two beer or coffee/coco tickets. Entertainment provided by the Blown Over Band.
We will also be presenting the Reef & Run award and the Semana Nautica Jeff Farrell Sportsman of the Year award.

This will be your last chance to buy great 2017 Reef and Run gear. Check out the apparel table at East Beach Grill next to the post-race check-in.
