2017 PCCs
« on: January 08, 2017, 12:28:49 PM »
Here is an update on PCCs:

Dates ore official and will be July 28th through the 30th.  The club is finalizing the registration form and notice of race now and it should be posted in the next few weeks.  I will post the link here when it is up.  Conditions at the lake are described here:

http://www.rogueyachtclub.org/index.php?page=race-conditions

We will have racing Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and early Sunday afternoon.  Camping, Cabin rental or RV sites will be available on a first registered first served basis.  There are 12 rustic cabins available and 7 RV sites with water and power, so if those are your preferred lodging options I suggest registering as early as possible when the forms are up.  There is essentially unlimited tent camping.
 
This is probably your best option for close by more "upscale" accommodations:

If you are travelling with friends/family who do not want to be in the boonies, Ashland is your best option.  Ashland is 40 min from the resort.  For anyone who wants to stay in Ashland, let me know if you want to VRBO it.  Jesse Repp (my trimmer) has a cottage for rent in Ashland that might work.

Total plan is for 8 races.  We are trying to maximize the racing/work-days-off ratio with this schedule.  Travel planning from various home bases would look like this:

Sandpoint - leave midafternoon Thursday and drive to Bend.  Stay in Bend Thursday night and leave about 7:30 am- arrive at the lake at 10:30am.  Drive back and get back late Sunday night or drive partway (say tri-cities) and get back early Monday afternoon.

Salt Lake City -  leave around noon on Thursday.  Stay in Lakeview Thursday night and leave about 7:30 am- arrive at the lake at 10:30am.  Drive back and get back late Sunday night or drive partway (say Winnemucca) and get back early Monday afternoon.

Reno or San Francisco- Leave after work on Thursday stay in Weed or Mt Shasta Thursday night and leave about 8:00 am - arrive at the lake about 9:30 am.  Drive back Sunday night no problem.

Monterey CA or Fresno CA- Leave mid-afternoon on Thursday stay in Weed or Mt Shasta Thursday night and leave about 8:00 am - arrive at the lake about 9:30 am.  Drive back Sunday night but get back late or stop somewhere along the way.

Obviously there is great flexibility for anyone who wants to extend their stay or have a more leisurely approach to the weekend but I just like a schedule that permits maximum racing time per day off work for everyone that has those issues.  Crater Lake Rim is 1.5 hours from Howard Prairie and is awesome sight if you have never experienced it.  There is some great fly-fishing around if that interests you- let me know.  For any friends/family who like country music, there is big country music festival that weekend in town (50 min from the lake).  Ashland has the Shakespeare festival that time of year.  Upper Klamath River is a gnarly class 4-5 whitewater trip (guided trips available).  Also, we have some great wineries in our area if that is an interest.  Our firm does a lot of work with the wine industry so if there is interest from several boats who are coming early or staying late and want to do a wine event like Thursday night or Sunday night, let me know and I can arrange something cool.

Schedule and forms should be up in the next few weeks.  Looking forward to everyone coming to sail with us.

Hi Jay, looks great. Looking forward to the regatta!

Have you guys ever stayed in the cabins or the hyatt lake cabins?   Looks like the best option is to camp?

I have been in the rustic cabins at Apserkaha but not stayed in them.  They are a definite upgrade from camping and if you bring an additional camping pad to put on the supplied bunk padding I think they would be the best option.  My family has stayed at the Camper's Cove Cabins and they are really nice.  It just depends - $60 for a rustic cabin vs. $330 for the Camper's Cove cabin.

My team tends to like to keep it cheap (unless the wives come - then it gets expensive) and we would opt for one of the rustic boy scout cabins.

West Coast U20s,

PCCs Event Site is up and going and Registration is Open!

http://www.regattanetwork.com/event/14091#_home

The best lodging options will be available for the first boats to register!

If you are planning on staying in one of the rustic boy scout cabins for you and your crew then you will need to reserve 6 nights ($10 per person per night - $60 total).

I am available via email to answer questions as they come up.

Sorry.  Short false alarm.  They had to halt the registration briefly to tweak something.

Registration is now open.

IF you are intending to race it would be good to register sooner rather than later.  Lodging cannot be secured until you pay but even if you do not want to check out it would be useful to register that way everyone knows who is planning to race.

The Perpetual Trophy is here.  You need to be here to get it.  The lake is full and winds have been great.  Yesterday was 85 degrees, sunny and 10kts of breeze.  Early discount is up next Saturday!
