Gregg, we're staying at the Marriott on Admiralty Way overlooking the marina.  Not exactly cheap.

I used to sail in Marina del Rey. Thought that the attached Marina del Rey Racing Course Chart may be of benefit to the participants and race committee as you plan for the event. It shows the marks already in place and their corresponding distances and positions. You may, more than likely, be using some of the marks.

Kind regards.

We'll be setting tetrahedron marks off of the Venice pier. It is more appropriate for a regatta of this caliber. And I believe Cal YC is running the Harris Series using the fixed marks that weekend.

As long as we don't conflict with the AC races in SF, team Uhoo! Will be there.

Layla plans to be there. I am glad that we were able to find a good West Coast location after Santa Cruz stumbled. Looking forward to some SoCal ocean racing!

Del Rey YC will be soon sending out the NOR as well as list of accomodation. There will be plenty of good options for accomodation.

Logistics questions:

It looks tentatively like we will arrive late Monday night.  What are the logistics to get into the club and park the boat?

It looks like there is a local club race Wednesday evening.  Any chance the U20s can get a start at the end of the locals for this race as a tune-up race?

From the weight limitation, it sounds like the hoist is not a big deal for the U20, please confirm Glenn and Michael use it?

Jay

The club has a new pass card entry system that generates a new key pad entry number every week or so.  I think I will be able to get the key pad number as we get closer to the event. 

Cal Yacht Club runs the Sunset Series.  They may add a class after the existing classes. The issue is if they do, the last start is around 6:30.  It'll be a short race. The later classes to start usually get a 3.5 mile race. That usually consists of .5 mile upwind, .75 miles downwind with spinnaker and another 2 miles inside the harbor with no spinnaker allowed.  The PHRF D class starts earlier and usually gets a 4.5-6.5 mile race.  The time limit is 8:30.  I won't be there as I will be returning from Watkins Glen, New York.

I use the hoist all the time.  I set my sling up to put the bow down just a little to make sure the mast clears the hoist.

Jay,
 There are three hoists and on public launch ramp in marina del Rey. Del Rey and California yacht club offer more secured parking. South coast Corinthian yacht club (the co-host) is more open grounds. All hoists capable of launching u20s no problem. I keep our boat in the mast up storage at the public launch ramp. Compared to the other two, south coast Corinthian is by far tiny with a one room clubhouse. But in my opinion the most friendliest club in the marina!
Cal yc has Wednesday nights and del Rey yc has Thursday night races. You can find the race schedules here:

Hi all.  The North American Championships are 5 months away.  Registration documents are posted on the U20 web site.  I'm not sure it is clear on the registration forms, but the $185 entry fee ($175 for early entry) includes the BBQs and dinners for all participants, and three participant shirts for each boat.  I'm looking forward to seeing all of you in Marina Del Rey in September.

So if I decide to come to the left coast from Michigan is there a chance of getting a junior sailor in the 60 to 80 pound range to race the regatta?

Is anyone looking for crew? A viper sailor asked if I knew anyone at last weekends long beach race week.

Good morning, I wanted to follow up with you regarding crewing on a U20.  You mentioned a guy in MDR might need crew.  I would be glad to travel their for meeting them, practice, whatever.  I have a resume available upon request also.
Thanks,
Dennis

Hi Everyone.

The Ultimate 20 Championship regatta is about 2 months away.  Marina Del Rey, located in the heart of Southern California, and in the Santa Monica Bay, is a fantastic sailing location in late summer.  Please take a moment to sign up for this regatta at https://www.regattanetwork.com/clubmgmt/applet_registration_form.php?regatta_id=6586 . It will help with advance planning if we know who is going to attend.

General information is available at http://www.dryc.org/RACING/Ultimate-20-Championship.aspx

I look forward to seeing the usual faces (and transoms) in September.
