Regatta 2011

Hi Fellow Sailors,

It’s June and sailing season is upon us!  I hope you have been getting the boat ready or maybe even had it out already.  Our first announced event the daysail on Blue Marsh on May 26 was not well attended, if at all.  At the May Board meeting it was decided to have the annual Regatta on Sat., June 25, and use the usual racing format.  We will be making our usual attempt to keep it on a friendly basis.  We will have a committee and the course marked with the racing buoys.  The first race will start promptly at 11:00 and we should be done by 2:30.  The BMSA handicap system will be used giving everyone a shot at finishing nicely.  There are 15 trailerable boats in the club 9 of which raced last year.  Hopefully a goodly number would want to use their boat in the company of fellow club members on the local lake.  Any members who have not raced previously and would like to try it should call me so I can get them up to speed.

The Regatta Party will be held after the race at the home of Conrad and Barb Vanino.  The party begins at 1700 hours with food being served around 1800 hours. Bring a side dish or dessert.   Please mark your calendar and plan to attend.  I would appreciate hearing from those members who plan to race or want to participate in the race in any way.  Tom Stoner 610-223-3593 or e-mail me.
