Message from your Fleet Captain – 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).

You will need to pay your dues online this year.  Note the price is $225 before May 17th and $300 on or after May 17th.

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,


PS. If you’re getting this email and you don’t own a J24 or want to get hooked up with a team to race with, see the crew board on our website.  

PPS (Is that even a thing?): If you want to be removed from this mailing list–just let me know and I’ll remove you.
