May 1st - The Pete Milnes Regatta

From Fleet 413:

Good afternoon everyone,

I hear that it's going to be Mid-50s by Sunday, so no more excuses for idle boats. We're down to the last three weeks, and then the big season-ending send off...the Legendary Pete Milnes Memorial Regatta. Be there, or lame.

Attached is the official NOR and SIs...everything you need to know so you don't have to ask questions at the skipper's meeting, right?

We've got a real, live professional PRO, the lovely and talented Sue Reilly, coming up from Connecticut to make sure the line is square and the courses are perfect (not that they aren't always....) If anyone would like to volunteer themselves or friends/spouses/out-of-commission sailors for mark boat and RC boat assistance, please let us know soon so we have the right number of bodies in each RC boat.

You can come on down early for registration (at 10 a.m.), where the Milnes family will be dishing out breakfast treats and hospitality. Get your paperwork squared away early and get out for some practice runs.

See you Sunday.

Dave & Stu (who's itching to get back out there!)

Register now for the Wickford Regatta!

Hi to everyone,

Registration is now open for the Wickford Regatta.  Apologies for being a little slow this year, but the website has been redone and it took longer than expected. Portions of the site are still under construction, but the entry process is up and running.  The dates are May 21-22, as previously announced, and we guarantee wind both days this year! 

Registration is open now, but there may be a few bugs in with the url in the NoR, so use if you have any trouble through early next week

We have set cash back incentives for all classes again this year, so please check the NOR for your classes cash back threshold.  We hope to be handing out lots of the stuff at registration.

We will be offering limited housing with members once again this year.  We will entertain requests only after you have completed registration, so please encourage your members to sign up soon.

See you in May,
