There’s an outside chance I am. If I don’t sell my boat and if I can get the title to this trailer that Wilby brought down to Baltimore and if I don’t lose my job and if the NAs are up there at a convenient time, THEN it would be something very attractive to me.
The 300 is two weeks before the NA’s, one week after EYC @ Collins Bay, and is followed by Youngstown Levels, so it would definitely make it worth while for travelling boats to make the trip. A month of consecutive events, making two complete circumnavigations of Lake Ontario. If travellers need help delivering their boats between events, I am pretty sure we can rustle up some volunteers.
Next question…if we get a number of boats interested in the 300, should it be contested in class trim, or open it up to assy’s? So long as the sails do not affect the PHRF rating of 108, I would not be opposed to using them.
(note…Old School will most likely NOT be at levels).
EYC @ Collins Bay YC – July 12-14
LO300 @ Port Credit – July 21-23
Youngstown Levels July 28-29
NA’s @ Oswego – Aug 1-5
I have sent an email to the LO300 Safety guy about how our boats don’t completely satisfy CAT3 requirements, with some specific questions related to their mandatory minimum equipment requirements. He immediately answered that they are not in the business of limiting participation because of this stuff, but that he would get back to me about my specific questions.
