Downeast Tee Shirt Designs Wanted

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Hey Fleet 43 & Friends!

As you know planning is in the works for the Downeast Regatta is underway.  We have had a lot of success selling merchandise, especially shirts.
We are looking for some fresh ideas for the regatta shirt this year-so if you are at all artistic/graphic send us a design idea.
  • Shirt designs usually consist of about 3 to 4 colors
  • Shirts are usually colored so one of the colors can be the background color
  • Designs are usually done on the back of the shirt, if your design is elsewhere, let us know.
  • Design can be submitted in any format, most ideal is VECTOR ART
  • Please submit designs to Molly White or 277Woodford Street, Portland, ME 04103 by June 1st so we can market the image in our event promotion.
  • The committee discussed incorporating lobster pots into the shirt but we are open to any ideas!
It would be great to get so many ideas that we will have designs for years to come.
Looking forward to some great ideas!

Just a reminder that this Saturday is spring clean up day at PYC. It’s a great chance to help the club that graciously hosts our J24 program and to meet new people. Even pitching in a few hours is helpful. Things will get started at about 8AM so remind your crew to come on down.

As mentioned previously, Wednesday the 16th will be our race refresher/spring meeting at 1730 at PYC.
