Re: Slip available for CHARLESTON RACE WEEK

I currently have a 50' slip at Charleston with only two boats in it.  There is probably room for a couple of additional U20's.  Let me know if you are interested before I tell the Harbor Master to fill up the slip.

Just my opinion, but for a regatta of this stature this is a pitiful showing for the U20 fleet.  Lots of talk the past few years but now that we're doing it, where's the support?  Charleston Race Week with a record 279 boats and only 12 U20s?  Hardly a record for us.  Just dissappointed, that's all.
We'll enjoy anyway.

I would like to thank Emily Jones for working hard to get this put together!  I know 12 boats is not what we had hoped but it is a start!

I wish I could be there, but I would have to leave my students hanging.  Tough to leave during the school year!

Numbers are rather low but we need to schedule much further out than last minute to give people time to plan their schedules. More important than this regatta is our NA's in August. People that are thinking of going should put their name on the list. The boys out west created a lot of enthusiasm last year that way and ended up with a great turnout. If you can not get good numbers out to your NA's, then we are kidding ourselves calling ourselves a one design class. Mike is doing a lot of work over in Holland. Everyone in the east and south should be supporting this regatta. Anyone we get from the west is bonus.

Chuck Ballew is sick and will not be sharing well with myself and Steve Rose. Perhaps we can put Dave Cralls group and ourselves in one well.

Sorry to have to stay in town but I'm sick. My crew, Cliff is on his way down and looking for a position. I gave him Don's mobile but if someone can use him, give his mobile 404-384-7286 a call.

I feel like crap. My tickets are available for the parties, and you are welcome to them. Everyone have fun.

Here is the link to the cumulative results for all classes at CRW.  The final race was a real challenge with a dying breeze and roaring current. Note all the classes with TLE (time limit expired).  Our ratio of finishers was impressive given we started 15 minutes behind the Vipers and J80's.  http://www.yachtscoring.com/event_results_cumulative.cfm?eID=407

No U20 went out. Most people went sightseeing or go carting. Well run regatta with lots of wind and current.
