To sign up:
One piece of information that will be important, is that the club has gone “cashless” this year. No cash entries will be accepted.

Other news:, the Sail Small Boat Day at the Richmond YC was received well by interested people relatively new to sailing as well as some some experienced sailors trying different boats for the first time. www.richmondyc.org/Calendar/Event/13823~1393383~1
In particular, we had Jon Arndt (Editor of Lat38) steering a boat with me (Lyn Hines), and Kim Desenburg (boat builder, Rabbit sailor) sailing with Bill Worden. It quickly became an upwind/downwind race but it was fun. Chris Nash took out one boat and some 110 sailors took a spin as well.

SoCal Mercury fleet is rallying to be present for the Cinco de Mayo regatta... hope we can make it an event!

Moderate breeze, flat water and sunshine. The wind settled in to Westerly with some good puffs towards the middle of day allowing for a 5 race day over paperclip courses two times around.

2019 Cinco De Mayo/ROC Regatta 📸

Last weekend two NorCal teams (Doug Baird, Lyn Hines), 3 SoCal teams (Bob Burns, Park Densmore, Mike Burch) made the trip to Santa Barbara, as well as Santa Barbara GT, for the Cinco de Mayo Regatta hosted again by the Santa Barbara Sailing Club. The Santa Barbara Sailing Club was very enthusiastic to have Mercury's participating since they made up one of the largest fleets for the regatta except the Laser qualification trophies.
