Get Ready For The 2012 Season

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Greetings all. I hope you had a good winter and are ready for another fine summer of sailing.

Our season begins in earnest next month. Here are some things you need to know.

The first night of ‘racing’ will be May 16th, meet at 17:30 at PYC. Like last year, we will have a race management review and our spring meeting to go over some things. This is required. Boats that have 2 or more members of the team in attendance and present at 5:30 will be scored two first place finishes for the evening. All other boats will be scored DNC. Boats that have 4 or more members present will also be entered in a lottery drawing for one or more prizes that might include distillery products, etc.

Fleet launch will be on May 19th beginning at 10AM (note the time) at Handy Boat.

Dues will be the same as last year. $160 total = $100 dues plus $30 for the first Wed night series and $30 for the second Wed night series, payable to J24 Fleet 43. You may give or mail your check to our treasurer Erik Hayward, 20 Phillips Road, Falmouth, ME 04105. Individual boats will only start getting scored in the series after dues are paid.

First on the water races will occur Wednesday, May 23rd, first gun 1800.

We suggest you check your battery and running lights. More details to follow but we are planning a moonlight race at some point this summer. Not part of the series but it should be fun.

Holler if you have any questions.
