SAP Sailor's Lounge
As has been the case in many previous worlds managed in partnership with SAP, SAP will be building a beautiful Sailor's Lounge on the property of Eastport Yacht Club.  The Sailor's Lounge will feature cutting-edge technology to show the power of SAP Analytics, host de-brief sessions, and serves as a meeting point for conversation and relaxation. 

Social Events
The SAP 5O5 Worlds will offer not just exciting action on the water, but great fun on shore.  Our opening ceremony will feature the color guard from the US Naval Academy and the Brass from the Annapolis Symphony.  The Mid-way party will feature great food, drink, live band, and partying until the late hour. The Closing Ceremony will take place at the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel in the heart of the City.  Pasta and beer will be available every day after racing.

Housing
The Annapolis Waterfront hotel and the Marriott hotels still have significant availability.  The Horn Point Bed & Breakfast 2 blocks from the club is sold out.   Be sure to visit the Accommodations page on our web site to take advantage of the negotiated housing deals, we have made.  Most hotel blocks expire expire in early or mid August.  You can also request free housing with local families at registration.  Free housing will only be considered for competitors who have registered AND paid.
