Message from your Fleet Captain – 2017

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Greetings Fleet 43!  

It is almost time to launch our vessels and kick of the 2017 J24 Sailing Season on our beloved Casco Bay. This is a relatively long, but essential email. Read to the end or risk missing some important information.  (Please forward to your crew!)

Carter, Molly, and I have done some good brainstorming this winter about how to strengthen our fleet and I hope you’ll agree when you see the NOR that is posted on our website. Carter has spent a ton of time working on this, as well as updating the website and when you see him, please thank him (or buy him a beer).

I look forward to competing against you on  May 17th! We will get teams on the water early this year with some coaching by Carter White. 

Until we gather together at Handy, please think of what your team can do to win Race Committee Award. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, finish reading the NOR. 

Wishing you all a lovely spring and some good warm weekends to get your boats ready!  2017 is going to be a great year for our fleet!  

Your fleet captain,

Erica
