2012 Opening Regatta this Saturday !

To all Oak Hollow Sailing Club Members and Guests: Our first official regatta of 2012, is set for this Saturday, April 21, at the sailing marina (end of Waterview Rd.) Boats should be rigged and ready to sail before the Captains’ Meeting begins at 10:30 a.m., so that we can begin our first race promptly at 11:30 a.m. Forecasted conditions look very good for our scheduled racing window of time (11:30 a.m. to around 2:30 or 3 p.m.) with winds forecasted to be in the 7 to 9 mph range. If the forecast holds, we should be completed and off the water before the rain arrives later in the day. As mentioned in an earlier email to you, the club has a 15-foot Boston Whaler Harpoon 4.6 monohull with jib and mainsail, available for rent for any member who is qualified to sail, first come, first serve. The rental cost is $20 for a regatta (no separate launch fee required), and will be $15 on days that the City will require the $7 launch fee be paid. If you are interested in renting this, please contact Paul Walter at 336-707-8112, or through email at [email protected]. We will see that it is in the water and ready to sail for anyone who rents it. Nancy Valego is primary Race Committee and will be assisted by Art Martz or Tait Humphries. We hope to see as many of you as possible for our first event. See you on Saturday morning! Paul Walter Oak Hollow Sailing Club
