J24 Midwinters

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Midwinters Announcement

Forwarded from planner of Midwinters in Tampa to all fleet captains, the following announcement . . .

As a member of the planning committee for the 2007 XXX (30th) J24 Midwinter Championship Regatta at Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, FL, I would like to extend an invitation for you to attend our event. The event is a World-Qualifier One-Design Championship Regatta. With the 2009 World Championships being held in Annapolis, we would like to
encourage you to attend our event to prepare and to participate in J24 racing.

The event is scheduled in February (8-13), and with a Saturday registration day (Feb. 9) and FOUR solid days of racing, the event promises to provide an excellent opportunity to have lots of fun and fierce racing. We are scheduling a total of 13 races, and our race committee promises to keep us out racing as long as we can stand it. Following the event, there will be a fun-distance feeder race to St. Pete Florida to transition you to the next venue, the St. Pete NOODs. So in a little over one week, you could participate in two world-class one-design events and enjoy the sunny Florida weather and hospitality.

The event also promises to pack in a lot of fun. With this event celebrating its 30th anniversary, we are planning lots of
off-the-water activities such as 1970′s night, a celebration of all the J’s that were launched during that decade (possible events include an Animal-House-like Toga party and special prizes for the owners of 1970 vintage boats), 1980′s night (possible events include a “test-your-crew” obstacle course and special prizes for the owners of boats from the 80′s), 1990′s night (possible events include a Cajun seafood boil), and last but not least, a banquet dinner with special appreciation for the J24 owners and crews who have participated in all, some, or other Midwinter events.

If you are debating about what events to schedule, schedule this one. Two events in one week represents less time off of work, and more opportunities to hone and to display your J24 skills.

Please contact Brian Malone at 813-842-0928 or respond to this email.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our event.

Take care,

Brian Malone

Late/Final Launch is still on, Saturday, June 8th, 8 AM

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Regarding tomorrow’s launch, it does not look like the wind will be a problem and Jay is planning to be there at 8.
I recommend getting there early/on time as there are not that many boats to get in and given the predicted soggy weather, I would not expect him to wait around long once he runs out of boats to launch.
Remember to thank him again as this is a special favor he is doing for our fleet.

1) Late Launch 2) Junior Boat 3) Dick Rose Rules Talk

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

If you have a J24 and it’s not in the water yet, this Saturday, be at Handy Boat at 8 AM, mast down ready to go. Remember to remove your trailer from Handy Boat after you launch.

If you have some decent used sails and would like to donate or loan them to the junior boat/ “Catamount” let me know. We are trying to get that boat in the water and the sails are a little sketchy.

And if you are interested in the Dick Rose Race Rules Seminar this coming Monday night, connect with Erik Hayward Wednesday night with your checkbook.
