Greetings fleet 43!

In an effort to have some more fun, Mr. Hankey, this week’s race committee, will be offering some special awards.  So remind your crew to hang around after the racing.  We wanted to give you a heads up so that you could prepare. Some possibilities might include-
*  Most coordinated effort (open to interpretation)
*  Best dressed team  (we saw many of you on the fourth of July–now have some fun on the 13th of August)
*  Fanciest yacht
And finally,
*  Most coordinated drinking performance (must be completed on the water and if anyone on the team is under the age of 21 (or doesn’t partake in consuming alcohol) then they must coordinate with an appropriate beverage.

* Other…….

We’ll see if we can capture some photos worthy of the J24 calendar!
Looking forward to another night of yachting on our beautiful Casco Bay.

REMEMBER, start at 5:30.

See you Wed.
Team  Mr. Hankey
