Race: Week of July 17th
It's been a while since my last post and there's lots of news; so please feel free to let me know if you think I've missed anything. Additionally I'll apologize in advance for the length of this entry, I'll try to be more regular in the future.
First of all contratulations; to Kevin & Danny or their 1st (Friday night race), to Mary & Margaret on their 1st overall (Harbour master), and to Maxim & Patrina on their 2nd place overall (J-town regatta). Awesome results Westwood!
Also a huge contratulations to our bronze & white sailors for a great turnout (6 boats) in the J-town regatta (Bravo fleet)! For most it was their first regatta and first time on the helm. Results are on the CAA website albacore.ca/caa_files/2012jtownB.html
Friday July 20th
Friday night series Race 12. "Looking For Crew"! (Ed Flynn). No race experience required. Sail with our elite boat captains (or myself) this Friday and witness the largest Albacore race series in the world. Simply add your name to the Friday night race sheet on the board under the "Crew" column. You'll be randomly assigned a helm, so you just need to show up Friday (before 6pm). (If you're running late call the clubhouse to check-in before 6pm).
Mooredale is hosting this weeks race and is offering a post race snack. To participate they're asking people to signup (in their clubhouse) so they know how much they'll need.
