We are into a new year and I think Bill is going to treat us right for the National's with a bonus two day regatta leading into it. I will be there for both and rumor has it last years champ and another go fast west side boat have already commited. As soon as Bill puts the link out lets see if we can get this on line to be the largest NA's ever.

My plan is do both as well! Looking at bringing an RV and "camping" should be fun.

It time to get your 2017 U20 North American registration in. The attached form covers the U20 NAís and the PYC Commodores Cup that directly precedes the NAís. This is the correct form. The form on the PYC web site will be updated shortly. There have been some questions on bringing an RV. RVís are welcome and there will be room for them at the U20 NA's. During the Commodores Cup, there will most likely not be room on the "Hill" or any electrical hook ups. If you are OK parking in the parking lot or other areas we should be able to accommodate you. Your other option would be to try and reserve a spot at one of the near buy State Parks for the Commodores Cup and then move over to the club for the NA's.

Note that we do not need money by these dates just the form or a note to kcmendel@aol.com with what you want.
Registration Dead Lines:
Commodores Cup:
August 5th for T Shirts
August 25st for Meals

U20 Nationals
August 4th for T Shirts
August 21st for Meals

Not sure what people's crew situations are, but I would consider flying out to crew if someone is looking for crew.  I can do either crew position.  Only interested in a boat with championship condition sails and in otherwise race-ready condition.

Private message me if you are needing crew...
