Mark/Travis

If we did Park City can we make at a time when we can do a Sail/Ski regatta combo?  :)

If so then you have my vote, my Caribbean crew might hate me but maybe one day they "man" up and like the cold :)

Not usually.  But we had an excellent regatta there last fall. Great breeze (a little shifty) and the Park City Sailing Association did a fantastic race committee job.  There is camping, cabins and condos right at the lake.  Plenty of dining in Park City. 

Might be nice.  Of course we would need to pitch PCSA first.   They are primarily a small boat club, but if we piggy back on their fall regatta it may work well.

They have hosted both the Laser Masters and Laser Districts.

My club's board voted unanimously to submit a proposal.  It has been transmitted to Gregg and Mark for distribution to the board.  RYC is proposing alternate dates (June 23, 24 and 25).  It is feasible to do the original dates but the weather is not likely to be as good and water levels are lower at that point.  There would still be plenty of room for sailing but the higher water levels are better.

The club website is:

www.rogueyachtclub.org

Check out the website and the venue on google earth.

My club DRYC will also be submitting a proposal for the middle of September. The weather is usually 75 deg, and the wind is a very consistent & steady 10-14 at that time of year. After my preliminary discussions with the board, I think the class will be very pleased with the offer

Travis,
  Someone would need to put a proposal together and get it submitted by the 1st of March. I can walk you through it if you want to call me. I like the thought!

I e-mailed Chris Chambers and he indicated Bob Aman was working with Eugene Yacht Club on a proposal and Chris is working on a Seattle venue.  It looks like the class will have several viable proposals to choose from so that is major progress from two weeks ago.

Eugene Yachtclub (Fern Ridge) is a great venue.  Great club.  Would love to go there again.

Mark, since we would have to talk Geoff into it in 1 week before submitting, I think I'll wait until it circles back around.  Call or e-mail me if you want to give it a go for this year.  I will be happy to help.

If Del Rey is selected - Boats can be stored for free at WD Schock Factory for those that may want to sail other races in SoCal.
