Once registration opens, boaters will purchase “one ticket” for $725 which is entry for one boat in the Boyne Thunder event. This will include entry in to all events for the captain and first mate.
In order to simplify the registration process, minimal information will be collected at this time. We will need basic information including name, address, phone number, email, payment information, boat length, boat name and boat type. After registration is complete, boaters will be contacted via phone in the order that their registration was received to choose dock space and/or be notified that, based on their registration number, they are not guaranteed a specific dock space. Please make sure the phone number and email submitted is accurate
There will be no waiting list for 2020.
The first 60 registrations, which include sponsors, will be provided dock space/rafts. The registration number, which is determined by the computer assigned date/time stamp, will determine the order for slip selection. Registrants 61 – 120 will be guaranteed participation in the all aspects of the event but will not be guaranteed their boat will be docked, rafted or moored in the water prior to Saturday morning. As additional docking/rafting opportunities become available, participants will be contacted based on their order of registration. The Boyne Thunder Committee and/or Harbormaster reserves the right to make changes to slip assignments based on the needs and logistics of the event.
