Laissez les bons temps rouler!! (Let the good times roll). This regatta corresponds to HIYC's Mardi Gras Party, which occurs the evening of the regatta date. It also counts as the last race in the Winter Series. The beginnings of the Mardi Gras Regatta began in late 2016 as a result of 2017 Commodore, Randall Butler wishing to exchange the "traditional" HIYC Wine Tasting Party for a Mardi Gras-themed party, since the date roughly corresponds to Fat Tuesday. Once this idea had hatched into a full-blown plan, the last race of the Winter Series was dubbed the "Mardi Gras" regatta. Since it ends the Winter Series, the Mardi Gras serves as a bookend "semi-standalone" regatta to the Change of Watch, which kicks off the Winter Series. The inaugural regatta was held in February 2017. The Mardi Gras Regatta is a PHRF cruiser regatta with 4 fleets: Heavy A, Heavy B, Light, and C fleet (main and jib only).
