Mercury Sailors,

The NorCal Series starts this Saturday March 2nd
03/02/19 Race #1
04/06/19 Race #2
05/11/19 Race #3
06/01/19 Race #4
To sign up:
One piece of information that will be important, is that the club has gone โ€œcashlessโ€ 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!

70th Labor Day Regatta 2019 ๐Ÿ“ธ

This was the 70th anniversary sailing the Labor Day regatta which back in the day counted 60 boats sailing. Launching must have been amazing.  It was our third time coming to the Stillwater YC and this was the best so far with great wind and a notably hospitable reception by the Commodore Denise Foderaro who is very enthusiastic about Mercury's and their history at the club.

From the Prez, August 2019...

Hello all Mercury Class Members!

Since my last report the NorCal series wrapped up, another successful series for the SF Bay Fleet. Unfortunately the SoCal series never gained any traction this year, but will push through to next Spring and make it happen! Then we had Santa Barbra Spring Regatta, with 6 boast on the line.
