Hello Fall Sailors and Parents!
In a little less than 2 weeks Sail Newport will be hosting the "Halloween Howl" which Pleon has attended over the past few years and is a great way to end the season. A notice of race along with regatta registration and other details can be found using the following link:
Please note that the 420 class will be sailing on Sunday only. If you are interested in attending the event please let me know by filling including your name in an online sign up:
Halloween Howl Sign Up
Interested parents and sailors are responsible for regatta registration(Link Above), transportation of their boats, transportation of the coach boat and if necessary the costs of housing a coach for Saturday night in Newport. Parents also must make sure that the coach boat has plenty of snacks and water for the sailors and a lunch for the coach. Since this regatta is in late October, it typically has very challenging and often cold conditions! There is no Opti Green Fleet for the event.
Sailors who are interested in the regatta must let me know by FRIDAY so we can make travel plans, arrange coaches and designate a "regatta parent" to make sure everything goes as planned. We need a minimum of 4 optis and 3 420's to send coaches for each fleet. If you have questions about the regatta please let me know!
