04/06/19 Race #2
05/11/19 Race #3

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!

Last minute entries, Scott Easom (crew Haydon Stapleton) and Jim and Kathy Bradley, spiced up the racing, making for a fun but challenging day racing in Richardson Bay.
