Ok time to get out of our winter funk.
Let's start talking about this years racing programs.

We have the spread sheet for local races.

Who is in for Patos island?

So far we have
Radiant Heat
Lime light
Vampire

These three boats have each had a great run in this race as it favors our boats design
We kill the fleet on corrected and line honors.

This is the 30th anv of this race and Ken oak the race organizer is looking to make it a big one.

And for once the current is with us.

Any takers?
Lets go boats in Anacortes and maple bay. Your right next door and this is a great way to tune up.
Two more and we get our own class.

Speaking of class.
Grady I was talking to the owner of the Jboat dealership in Seattle at the boat show and he is willing to put up a perpetual trophy for the J30 fleet if we come do Jfest.

Sounds like you should give him a call and see what you can set up!

Now who is in for some drag racing in the North West!

> Grady - still got that table? I still got $$ even with kids in college...

It's sitting in my garage with your name on it (I burned it in with my wood burning kit)! Hope I spelled "BoB" right.

I'm in for AN100, too, then. We'll make it a J30 major event. And may as well go ahead and do pitch, too.

Hey Don.

Lets get it going. I think that PSSR is better racing, since it's spring and the wind is often better than the summer drift. It's also one of the biggest regetta's of the year, so more boats, bigger party, etc.

J-Fest is good too, and would probably be better cruising down and back.

is there any where I can chuck the boat for a week?
I could ask Tony to sail it down?

Hey Now! The deal is you guys come down here for a race, and we'll go up north for a race! Not we'll meet at pitch!

Easy now.

Get me some info first before we get a twist in our nickers.

Where can I keep the boat for a week? Have I got the date right.

I would be giving up a double race day at my club ( remember I run the racing here!)
And then I have to round up my batty crew.

That distance will be a small hurtle though.

That's 14 hours of powering or 10 hours of good sailing.
You know I'm not retired yet!

Good one!

Now give me a hand if I am to do this. It is a bit of an up hill battle as this is right between Easter and patos.

Kind of wish we had a trailer for the boat.

Ok I will try to get crew and I need those numbers ok.

And I will start twisting.

Sure we can't do a rebate latter in the year?

So far I am planning on J-Fest. I am going to send out the schedule to my Crew this week. I am going lighter on the race schedule this year to allow more cruising and more racing on others boats:

Halibut Bank Race - May 7
Round Bowen Race - June 11
J-Fest - June 18-19
SOAR - August 5-7
N100 - August 26-28
*Pitch - September 3

* a possibility if I can find a weeks worth of moorage to keep the boat down after the N100

We also need more discussion around the racing. I don't want to hump 20 hours down to Seattle for PHRF racing as I can do that here. I am coming down for head to head class racing. I don't think we need to be anal about the class rules, but they should be relatively close to OD config. Don, maybe you can borrow a 163% and a bigger spin?
