Ronstan Midwinters Regatta Report and More (Yes - you need to register for the A-Cat North Americans)

E-mail Print PDF

DSC 297931 A-cats made the trek to Key Largo, and was it ever a good decision to go. I did not hear a single complaint. Everyone loved the venue. The weather didn't cooperate Sunday but everything else was perfect. Special thanks to Ben Moon with sponsorship from Ronstan and Skip Kaub who hosted quite a few boats.

Some people are looking at buying property there. It is that good.

Take a look at the great report published on the International A-cat site and Catsailing News. http://www.catsailingnews.com/2015/03/a-class-ronstan-midwinters-2015-key.html
Great job Bruce and all the top 5 sailors, the Intergalactic winners (scored as the top finishers in the bottom half of the fleet - nice and simple) and great job Woody on the Nikita. Woody has either won, tied, or otherwise had the most bullets for every major event this year. The foilers are fast but so is the Nikita!

Sam Armington looked very quick on his home built boat in the breeze as well and several sailors turned in some great performances. Probably personal bests.

See you in Gulfport and get ALL OF YOUR friends to register for the A-cat North Americans today. No city that I know of has ever courted us the way Panama City is doing this year. They have raised more sponsorship money than we have ever seen before. Let's reciprocate and show what a great class we truly are. Please. http://www.acatnorthamericans.com/registration/online-registration/

St. Pete NOODs !!

E-mail Print PDF

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!

Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club

9th Annual Fall 2014 A-Class Catamaran Regatta

THANK YOU FOR COMING!!!!!!!

lakehopatcongI want to give a quick shout out to all those attended last weekend’s 9th annual a-cat regatta at lake Hopatcong in NJ.  This year was a record in attendance with 40 boats that registered (37 actually sailed).  All the out of town sailors stayed with fleet members in beautiful lakefront homes and enjoyed spectacular blue skies and 75-78 degree days.  Those of you who attended the practice racing on Friday had a pretty good treat of good winds and lots of races.  We launched 14 races on Friday on a short 2 lap race course with a warm North breeze starting at 14mph with gusts to 17mph and settling into a steady 8-12MPH..  Everyone got plenty of starts, tacks, gybes, and mark roundings before heading back to the club to get started on the Keg.

We had two different photography groups out on the water this weekend as well.  Peter McGowen from US Sailing attended in hopes of assisting in an article about Lake Hopatcong and was taking photos of the scene on the water as well as off.  He has posted the photos online which can be viewed by looking at the link http://petermcgowanphoto.smugmug.com/Lake-Hopatcong-Fall-Regatta/.  We even got Peter on an A-Cat for race 3 and 4.  Wayne from OZ Sports was also on the other end of the course taking photos and we will soon be able to provide a link to those images as well.
