Logistics for the 2014 J/30 SNE Region Open Regatta hosted by Bristol YC 19/20 July is now posted.


J/30 racers,

With the regatta only a week and a half away, it's time to address the off water Regatta activities. You have some work to do.

First, the Skipper's meeting will be on Friday night at 1830 at Bristol YC. The Yacht Club hosts a casual TGIF dinner for the membership every Friday and you are invited to attend. It starts at 1900 (conveniently right after the skippers meeting). If you think you'd like to join the dinner, let me know and I'll forward the menu when it is available, usually Tuesday or Wednesday before the dinner. The dinner costs about $20.00 per head. If you let me know for sure by that Thursday, I can register you and any guests. Payment is at the door.

Saturday Dinner - We are having a pulled pork and chicken BBQ. The cost to you will be $15.00 per head. Please get your head count for you, your crew, and your support folks to me no later than this Friday (11 July) so I can get the number to the caterer. Payment will be accepted by my wife Kathy at the skipper's meeting by cash or check made out to J/30 Class Association, at which point you will receive meal tickets.

Lunches - We have an arrangement with our local sandwich shop, Ricotti's, to provide box lunches for those who want them. They can make small Tuna, Italian, or Turkey grinders with apples and chips for $5.00 each and deliver them to the yacht club with your boat name on them by 9:00 each morning. YOU need to call them and place your order for your boat. Make sure you cover both race days as needed, Tell them you are racing in the regatta at Bristol YC, pay by cc on the phone when you order, and provide your boat name. Please have it all together first so you make only one call per boat. Orders must be placed no later than Thursday, 17 July. Their phone number is 401-253-1614.

Moorings - For those of you who requested moorings, the Yacht Club is expecting you. As you enter the harbor, contact the club on channel 68 and they will bring you to your mooring.

Important Yacht Club Rule to be highlighted - Bristol Yacht Club does not allow any alcoholic beverages on the grounds that does not originate from their bar. You can have drinks from your boat's cooler on the docks, but you cannot bring them off the docks. This is strictly enforced, and we are asking that you respect this restriction.

Please confirm to me by return email that you received and understand all this. If you have any questions feel free to ask, as you are probably not the only one with the question. If you need to call me, my cell is 508-245-1192

Please jump on these actions now so all goes smoothly and we can just focus on racing.

Thanks, and looking forward to a great event.
