I vote we waive the driver/owner and weight limit rules for the upcoming Charleston race week. It would be great to have a big turnout for this event.

I also support waiving the owner driver rule to get more boats on the water, however, for the sea lawyers among us, it's worth noting that both the owner driver and weight limit rules apply only to "class sanctioned events" under article OD II. The 2011 Regatta Schedule posted on the web site doesn't include CRW, so it's probably not yet a sanctioned event, so....

I'll go register now while my crew and I are still eligible ;-)

Cheers,

Rick

CRW now has 9 boats registered. 7 from US. 2 from Canada. Lets get into the double digits. There has to be a few more boats in the East, plus a few more from Canada. Brad talked me into going. Usually get 3 good days of sailing. Reasonable rooms. Great restaurants. Central location. CRW is quickly becoming the small boat version of Key West without all the costs. Lets keep promoting.

It really is a great place to race and take the family to. The after party at the resort each night is also one not to be missed :P. We have done this regatta for the last three years and have found a bunch of cheap clean Hotels that are close by. If you go down town it is really Historic with great restaurants.

The only thing is make sure you take a motor to this regatta as there is a bunch of currents at the entrance to the marina. (we sail in every year but it is not easy) :o.

Is there going to be a U20 fleet at the Outback this fall in Columbia, SC. I'm planning on being there if there is interest. I need to plan now.

I'm planning on doing Outback probably PHRF spin to be eligible for the 'Cup'.  Don't know how many U20s will come down from here, hopefully a few, but with three there we're bound to have some U20 action there.  If you are on the road come join us at Lake Norman for the Peninsula Cup Regatta on Sept 17/18 at Peninsula YC.  We will probably have a U20 OD fleet and PHRF.  COME JOIN US!

Hi Guys,

Just as soon as I find a U20, I'll come join the SE circuit. I've hauled my Viper from Miami to Marblehead, so Lake Murray and Norman are easy weekend trips. Hope to join the fun in the spring if the "right" boat comes along.
