Hi All,

We hope you had a great July 4 week!  The sailing conditions last week were at the two extremes with a stiff 15-20kts breeze on Thursday and  light air on both Wednesday and Sunday.  The light air days have dominated the schedule this year and those staying focused on the details have been rewarded.

This week we are back to the normal Thursday and Wednesday schedule, so come on down and enjoy the best days of the summer!

One issue to report is that the fleet has been very late getting out to the starting line this year - averaging about 25-30min late!  The RC has asked that we please pull it together so we can get started on time.  Please arrive in time to rig and leave the beach 20min prior to the first gun.  You're devoted fleet captains will be making an effort to keep everyone on schedule and trying to get off the beach at the appointed time.  Thanks for your help.

Lastly, if you are still planning on bringing your boat down, make sure to stop in at the stewards office so they can help you find a spot.  The rack is very full, but there are various other craft currently in the rack that can be moved.   Also, if you have experienced any lost items, damage to your boat, or anything that concerns you in the storage area, please respond to this email and let us know.  We are currently working with the board and leadership of the club to address the boat storage area and any other concerns fleet members might have about the storage area.

We're looking forward to another fantastic week of sailing and see you on the water!

The Return of the 50+ Boat MA State Laser Championship!

This year the Helly Hansen Marblehead NOOD is also the Laser MA State Champs, which drew 53 boats in 2016. The 2018 fleet already includes boats from Maine to Florida, multiple NOOD Champions, a hasben World Champion, and yachties from AUS & UK.
So far, 25 Lasers are registered, making us the 2nd largest NOOD fleet behind the J70, which has 46 boats - but those are big boaters who do dorky things like pack sandwiches and avoid late fees. Laser Sailors don't care about that. But we do care about max boats on the line - so as soon as you say:
Yeah! I'm Sailing This Thing!

Bentley and Sachem's Head - Two great one-day'ers - Don't miss out!

Sachem's Head - Guilford, CT - June 24

Hi All-

Just a friendly reminder that this Sunday, June 24 is the ECSA Laser Regatta at Sachem's Head Yacht Club in Guilford, CT. The late fee for the registration kicks in on Thursday, so if there are others in your fleet that want to come, sign up before then to avoid the additional fee!

The $35 registration comes with racing, a regatta t-shirt, post-race food, and 2 drink tickets, so it's a fairly good deal if you decide to make the trek!

  3. Remember John Bentley by sailing on Buzzards Bay with great people!

If you haven't been to the Bentley Regatta before, you are missing out. You can't ask for better racing or nicer hosts, and your favorite die hard laser sailors will be there.
