REGATTA COMMITTEE NEWS:
”Come Within Hail”
Bob Sardo, Club Race Officer
We are still in need of Race Committee Crew for two upcoming events. Contact me by e-mail, text or phone if you are able to help with either of these regattas. The New Year is upon us, it is time to prepare for new adventures.
Gasparilla Regatta will be on Saturday, February 11, 2017. We need Two Signal Boats and 2-4 Mark Boats, along with crew to staff the event. Needed are two 30+ foot sailboats for Signal duty and power boats to serve as Mark, Safety and Photo boats to assist on the water during the event.
Coming on March 31 thru April 2, 2017 will be the “Mutineer 15 Midwinter Championship” inaugural event. This will be similar to the National event we hosted in 2015, although it will be over fewer days. March 31st will be a mid-afternoon warm-up race. April 1st & 2nd will be multiple races over a 4-5 hour period. The vessel needs will be a 30’+ Signal boat and at least 3 Mark boats. We need to duplicate the crew coverage and capability that the National event required. This is another opportunity for our Members to shine.
As normal, RC crew will be provided with food and water during the days of activities for both the regattas. Please message me with your availability and keep an eye out for me at meetings and work parties.
Thank you in advance for your help.
