The 2009 J/30 North Americans will be held at the Cedar Point YC in Wesport CT the last weekend in September. Stay tuned for more details as John McArthur and Carl Sherter work to organize this with the other J/30s home based at Cedar Point. I believe the dates are 25-27 September 2009 but we must get confirmation from CPYC. Only 365 days and counting!

2-4 October 2009 at Cedar Point YC

I just spoke with John McArthur and confirmed the dates for the 2009 J/30 North American Championship. The dates are 2-4 October 2009 at Cedar Point YC - Westport, CT. There will be a web site generated with information. Once the web site goes live, a link will be available from the J/30 home page.

John McArthur won a cage-match over Halsey Bullen, so instead of tactician on Laser Beam I will be PRO this year. Now that I live in Tampa, I will be bringing a team of heavyweights (pun intended) from Davis Island YC to staff the RC.

As of this week the NOR is in Draft 2, hopefully to be public by the end of this month. I have added October 1 to the schedule, for practice racing with RC. This means the RC will be practicing, and if J-30s come out to play they are welcome!

Eric,

We'll miss you as a competitor, but glad to see you on the race course.

Hope you're getting to sail Lasers down at Davis Island.

Luke - I spoke to John McArthur last week. CPYC is putting in a new crane - I think he said 5 ton capacity. John expects it to be operational in August. John indicated that he expected to post some 2009 NA logistics info soon, so stay tuned.

I'm in favor of the discussion about the 2010 NA's and support Davids hard work planning the venue.
I also think we need a discussion about the 2009 NA's at Cedar Point - who is coming for sure and maybe? Who needs help transporting the boat - Fuzzy Wuzzy's trailer will most likely be available, I think Smiles trailer may also be available. What can we do to beat the 23 boat regatta we had last year???
IMHO - for the future well being (growth) of the class we need to put as many boats as possible on the line for the National events and let the rest of the world know.
In 2006 I don't think we had any boats from NNE at Cedar Point - will that change this year?? Will all the good boats from the Chesapeake come this year??
It is not my intention to step on any toes - just to get a discussion going and hopefully build some interest for this years NA.
BTW Fuzzy Wuzzy will be there./Bengt Johansson

Rhapsody is definitely in for 2009 NAs and delivering by water the weekend before. I'm arm twisting the Southern New England District to get more folks committed to participating.

Blue Meanie is in for 2009, and unless something terrible happens, 2010 as well. The trip by water from the NE region is full of potential stopovers, and plenty of safe havens ( I can't say the same for the trip from Raritan to Annapolis and back over water-been there, done that. Twice. Ouch.) If we draw all the Cedar Point active boats, three Raritan boats, a few travelers from Annapolis, and a contingent of NE boats trying to build support for the '10 NA's, we ought to have a strong fleet this year. From the NE (besides Evelyn)-Arbella, DBows, Falcon, anyone else...who will make the trip?

As I see it:

Annapolis:

Bebop
White Boat?
Big Kahuna

Raritan

Fuzzy Wuzzy
Blue Meanie
Belle Faster

Mass/RI

DBows (boat name)?
Arbella?
Evelyn
Rhapsody
Falcon?

New Orleans

Zephyr 2.0 (loaner)
Jalapeno?

Western LIS

Pale Rider
Kinsale?
Excalibur?

Cedar Point

Smiles
Forever and Always
Dow Jones
Fat City
Helium?
Bad Dog

Anyone else? How about Better Mousetrap? Good News? Anyone?
