Wanna get away? Florida is calling you...

From District 13:

How much time do you want to spend sailing your Laser and basking in the Florida sun this winter?  You can come down in December and stay into February while you enjoy several different regattas at various venues.  Here's the list:

Dec. 11-12 D13 Championships, Lake Eustis, FL

Dec. 26-30 Open Orange Bowl, Miami, FL   

Jan. 22-23 Boomerang Regatta, Ft. Lauderdale, FL http://www.lyc.org

Jan.  23-27 Miami OCR, Miami, FL

Feb. 5-6 Charlotte Harbor Regatta, Port Charlotte, FL 

Feb. 12-13 Florida Masters PBSC, Palm Beach, FL http://www.pbsail.org/

Feb. 15-16 Masters midweek Madness PBSC, Palm Beach, FL http://www.pbsail.org/

Feb. 18-20 Masters Midwinters DIYC, Davis Island, FL http://diyc.org/

Feb. 24-27 Laser Midwinters East  

And if that's not enough for you, you can always find a place to sail on any unscheduled weekend.  LYC, USSC's(Miami & Jensen Beach), Melbourne YC, Sarasota Sailing Squadron, and DIYC all have short course racing or practice sessions most weekends.

As many of you know, we consult the Farmer's Almanac and only pick dates when the sun will be shining, wind will be blowing, and temperature will be "fine".  In other words - perfect Laser sailing conditions.  So take your leave of absence, quit your job, kiss your loved one(s) goodbye (or bring'm with), pack up the boat and lots of sunscreen and come on down!
