A few regattas to make note of:
As in the past we will be sailing from NYC to the TSCC race course. Go to https://www.tscc.net/event-2390319 to register. Online Icebreaker registration closes on May 17.
Last month I put out an email polling for interest in an ABYC event. Unfortunately we did not get enough commitments to get a start in the ABYC Open. Maybe next year.
Nepean One Design:
In the past, this regatta has been poorly attended by NYC because of a conflicting Etchell regatta. No excuse this year. Let’s support the Nepean fleet!
This is always a fantastic local NYC regatta and we hope to have good turn out again this year.
Great Lakes Regatta:
This is the fall 2.4 regatta that has great racing and a fleet barbecue on Saturday night. Hosted by NYC, we will have a notice of race up shortly on the NYC web site. Another reminder email will be sent to the fleet as soon as registration is open.
Alain Dubuc has done a wonderful job in making the Point Claire event a destination regatta that can’t be missed. See you all at the 2.4 Canadians.
NYC regatta series:
We have in the past enjoyed getting in 7-8 races a day in our NYC series one day events. We have identified 3 dates to run the series but I am always open to expand the series if we have enough interested participants. This is a fantastic time to tune up, practice starts and get in some pacing. The course is set up around 10:30 and we are usually racing by 11am.
Thursday Night Club racing:
As in the past, we will again be club racing on Thursday nights. Another email will be sent out in the next couple of weeks with a start date.
On a final note, NYC and volunteers provide us with racing, resources and fleet support. We also have an opportunity to reciprocate and I would ask that you go to this NYC link NYC Volunteer Form and volunteer some time to give back to other NYC fleets.
It’s been a long winter and I look forward to seeing you all on the water. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
