The A-Class has been invited to do the St Pete NOODs again next month. This is a great regatta. I went last year and had a great time. We sailed out of Spa Beach in downtown St Pete and people watched the racing from the pier. Breeze was 8 to 15 and it was a lot of fun to sail with the VXs and Contenders. Can't wait for us to show off some foiling this year.
I am in. Bill Vining, Ken Marshack, Woody, Rush, Emmanuel, possibly Ben, and others are a go. With little planning we had about 10 boats last year and I think we could easily have more this time. Not only is the regatta a lot of fun, you come away with a ton of gifts and get to enjoy a reception every night with Mount Gay.
It's also a nice place to stop or leave the boat on the way to the Upper Keys in early March. I can help find storage for you if you need it between the two regattas.
Late fees start Jan 28 so the time to register is now. http://www.yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=1227
Hope to see you there!
