July Regatta

DSCF4427Reminder to all OHSC Members:

This Saturday, July 20th, is our July Regatta. Captains’ Meeting at 10:30. All boats planning to participate should be rigged and ready to sail BEFORE the meeting.

Race Committee will be handled by Linda Marsh, John Fulcher, and Chuck Eldred. Refreshments to be provided by Connie. Thank you ladies and gentlemen!

Forecast conditions (as of Tuesday’s long range forecast) are expected to be 9 to 10 mph winds, with a high of 89 – just about perfect for a July racing day! We have a few new member boats in the fleet since our June regatta, and we hope to see them on the water. Carl and Lois Simmons transported their 19′ Lightning from Maine, Gene Eldred has added a 14′ Hobie catamaran to his fleet, and Tom Kirkman picked up a 14′ WETA trimaran yesterday (to add to his fleet of trimarans). All three of these are fast boats, and it will be fun to have them in the regattas with us. (We haven’t found a handicap rating for Jerry’s new “baby catamaran”, so he will likely be sailing his Aquacat in the regatta).

The Sunfish has been rented for the regatta (Whitney DuPont), but for any member wanting to captain a boat, the 15′ Harpoon is available to rent for $25. It is in great condition, and sails beautifully. Let me know if you are interested in renting it.

Hoping to see a big turnout on Saturday!
