MJRW Housing
July 17, 2011

Dear friends, families, and participants in Marblehead Junior Race Week,


It won't be long now. We'll be seeing most of you next Sunday at Pleon Yacht Club; we're looking forward to a great regatta!


Among the unique aspects of MJRW that we are proud of is our practice of offering accommodation hosts to traveling sailors. We will be placing a wide range of sailors with a diverse group of volunteer families in Marblehead. Many individuals on both sides look back fondly on this housing program. 


The deadline for making a housing request has now passed. If you are already registered, and made a housing request, you can be assured you will have a place. It will take a few days to provide the details. We strive to make our cutoff as late as possible, subject to the logistical constraints of a volunteer-based housing program. After the cutoff, we have to make matches and finalize host commitments (which may involve additional host recruiting efforts!).


While it is possible that we may accommodate requests made after the deadline, there is no guarantee. Because of the flurry of effort involved in matching, we probably cannot provide a forecast until Wednesday or so. For housing details for those in before the deadline, you will be notified this week.
