I want to do some more long distance racing and looking at the LO300 or the Bayview Mac in July 2015. Not sure if others are considering either race.
Any private discussions where and when the 2015 North American are going to be? Loyalist was fun but it needs to become a member of Ontario Sailing for my boat to return. Not sure how you guys feel but if our sport is to continue to offer excellent sailing, all sailors ( and not just racing sailors) need to support our sailing associations and pay membership fees.
About the 2014 NAs; if I could relive one days sailing, it would be around Amherst Island in the same conditions as last summer. It was frustrating as there were lots of mistakes made aboard our boat but overall we had a blast of fun. I want more days like that.
scot mundle (previous skipper old school) told me recently in an email that dave savard from quebec has been organizing the selection process – by vote of skippers in the region – for NA’s in the past few years.
i would like the discussion to begin soon also. it’s early days but people’s schedules fill up and making sure you have crew for events involves a lot of advance planning.
Midwest boats should consider the Port Huron to Mackinac. Spar Wars and Opus Dei are in for sure. Couple of others are interested! Do it…mid July. Launch in Port Huron and have your pit crew meet you in Mackinaw City for haul out and return.
PHRF Shore Course. You will need as a minimum Offshore #2 equipment. Read the NOR early to make sure you have the stuff!
Has the site for the 2015 LYRA Annual Regatta been announced? Possible NAs site? Or has been mentioned before, I can guarantee a good time, good RCs and no hoist fees if people are will to travel to western Long Island Sound for a North American Championship.
