2012 San Diego NOOD
« on: December 08, 2011, 12:30:52 AM »
Folks the San Diego NOOD regatta will be held March 16 - 18, 2012.  I would like to see if we can get enough participation to put U20s back in this event and give U20 sailors a great escape from winter cold elsewhere.  Please advise me of interest and preference for 2 vs 3 day regatta.  Thank you & Merry Christmas.

Steve,
  Have you been in contact with the other local owners and what do they think? If you can get comitments from 4 or 5 locals, I think the Colorado boats will travel in, and maybe some from Northern CA. If so we could get 8 or 9 boats from the event.

With such a long drive, I like a 3 day event.

Mark - I think we only have 3 boats left in San Diego.  I am hoping some of the LA area & points North boats will want to come play.

Cheers,
Steve

Are the 3 you, Ty and Steve? Michael said he would go if he can get is work commitments covered, and I wondered if Glenn would commit or is he planning on sailing the Viper. That would be five and I would hope some of the Bay area boats might make the trip.

thanks Glenn!

It looks like the NOOD is building momentum. 3 boats from Colorado and 1 boat from Utah are interested in going. That would make 9 boats. If we can get some boats from the bay we can hit double digits.

The information on the website says that the specific racing venues will not be known until the SI's are posted.  Mission Bay is a long way from some of the other locations.  How are we supposed to do trip planning if we do not know where we are going to be sailing from?

We are considering this Regatta and would like to know more about what our options are.  We would like to avoid a 25 minute drive from the venue to the hotel and back?

Steve?

Jay,
  They have put us in the South Bay for the last 3 years and Steve Bowman has coordinated with the Coronado Yacht Club for launching and overnight storage. He is a member. So I would plan on the South Bay. However, I have always reserved cheap rooms close to the San diego Yacht club and hang out at the Fiddlers Green. Much cheaper than staying on Coronado. I have passed on the NOOD party tickets and dinner since that doesn't seem to be good value. There were a couple of teams staying at the Vagabond Inn and Alan Madsen turned his truck into a makshift bar and we all had appetizers and drinks in the parking lot! Hope you can make it this year.

Jay - I will continue to press for the South Bay venue and am pretty sure they will accommodate us.  The organizers know they demolished participation by the U20 fleet the year after they put us out in the ocean (and the kelp)!

At this point it looks like Clifton and I have the last two San Diego U20s standing.  I am waiting to hear if the other two SD owners are interested in chartering their boats.

Happy New Year,
Steve

What about Ty Beach #89 Voila, and Steve Crooke/Grant Wooden #67 Mr Happy. I think they are in the area. Can you contact them and see if they are interested?

They pretty much destroyed the Holder 20 fleet as well that year. An hour tow to the start line (which we one day missed due to tech difficulty ), two hour sail back in a dying breeze. Then they want you to spend money afterwards when your dead tired, I've felt the pain Steve

Mark - Ty moved East and I thought he sold the boat out of the area.  I am not familiar with SOCAL boats other than mine, Clifton Odom's, Kevin Egelhart's , John Portier's and Michael Eisenberg's.

Happy New Year!

Iam a past U20 owner and San Diego NOOD participant.  Would love to attend if there are any owners in the area interested in chartering.   

Thanks
