The Intergalactic Fleet will be a fleet of sailors within the North American A-Class Catamaran 2014 Championships. You join the fleet by announcing your intention to sail in the Intergalactic Fleet upon registering at the regatta. Five trophies will be rewarded to the 5 top sailors in the Intergalactic Fleet. This is the first year this has been done and a perpetual trophy will be presented to the top Intergalactic Sailor.
Plans for a Intergalactic meeting/party is in the formative stages. If you think you will be sailing in the Intergalactic Fleet or you would like more information, let me know by emailing me at
. There is also an Intergalactic Yahoo Group at https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/A-Cat_Intergalactic/info . Anyone is welcome to join the group and post comments, ideas and start topics for discussion.
The simple rules are: 1. No races count for the Intergalactic Fleet if winds are a sustained 18 mph or above. A maximum of 2 races a day will be counted for the Intergalactic Fleet.
Pretty simple? The fleet was formed to address a the different skill levels within an A-Class regatta while maintaining one start for all. If you are focused on sailing a good/fun regatta but know that you are not going to be a part of the top contenders then you may want to consider joining the Intergalactic Fleet for the 2014 NA Championships.
