There is a traitor among our ranks as I noticed today on the charleston scratch sheets. Can this be Jim?
That's actually a slightly sore point with me.

I had two very experienced sailors from my club race Scissors (50) in a local regatta last September. Nice guys. Have know both of them for a while. They had a good time racing Scissors and asked if they could race her in the fall series. I said ok and looked forward to mixing it up with them on the race course. Then they skipped the first race and the second and so on for the whole 8 race season.  Neither has been on the boat since that first race in September.

I'd see the skipper occasionally and he told he was so excited that he was going to do Charleston Race Week on a U20. I had pretty much decided that he really hadn't earned the free charter for Charleston, until another club mentions Scissors is signed already signed up for CRW. The skipper hadn't bothered to to tell me that he registered the boat. He's not really on my good side right now.

The Bostons are bringing new sails for Scissors at Charleston. They'll be spending the weekend in my hotel room.  :)

Steve,

The traitor I was speaking of was Mr. Pearson as he is on the scratch sheets in a melgi. Looks like I opened a can of worms. Are you implying that your other boat will not be sailing? I know of someone that may want to charter a boat for Charleston if any of you out there know of one available. I vouch for the guy and he owns  ahenderson 30 so he knows the program.

My extra boat is what I discussed above. Pearson is sailing a Melges 20.  (He's  already registered.)  He still has his U20 but wanted a second boat to travel in the winter so he's not really a traitor.

Iím considering coming out for Charleston, Is scissors available to charter? Iím also considering bring Juiced! Out and was looking for some help getting it from Charleston down to Pensacola. Any ideas on that? This may make the difference for me on these two regattas in pulling the boat out and back and then down to Pensacola for NAís

What do you think?

I also have two boats, but only one I can drag south behind my car. Dragon Bait really wants to do both Charleston and Pensacola, but I have to wait a few more weeks to find out if I can.

I am attaching the link to the NOR and Registration page for Charleston RW.

http://www.yachtscoring.com/event_scratch_sheet.cfm?eID=552

There are 5 U20ís registered as of today, including one from Michigan! 

 

You do not have to pay at the point of registration, but by signing up before Feb 1, you save $50.00 off of the entry fee. So register now and figure out the logistics later.  For most of us in the SE, Charleston is an easy drive.

Yes, she is available now! My other charter just cancelled. I'm getting some lightly used used (one regatta) sails delivered at Charleston for 50. If you want to see them, look at first place boat in last year's U20 NA's.

I thought this was one of the big events that we wanted to have a good showing from the fleet. Six boats in not what I would consider a good showing so where areal the east coast guys? Iím coming in from Denver and chartering #50 from Steve Rose and looking forward to an awesome weekend of racing so come on boys letís dust off the boats and get out there. We should be seeing at least double digit numbers for this one.

Good luck to everyone that is sailing Charleston. Both Brad and I will be down there sailing, Brad on the Viper and I am sailing with Pearson. If you all have any questions look us up!

PS great turnout shaping up for the NA's as well!
