Now’s the time to sign up for the St Francis Yacht Club’s Spring One Design Regatta, the first event on the 2016 Fleet One calendar. This year, Saturday’s racing fun will be combined with a post-race seminar by Dave Perry, illustrated with events on the water and, no doubt, a smattering of entertaining and informative anecdotes drawn from his experience as a skipper, tactician and RRS maven. Dave is a collegiate All-American, two-time Congressional Cup champion and a respected author and teacher. For several years, Sailing World published a regular column by Perry: “Winning In One-Designs”. Perry went on to pen “Tactics in Windshifts”, “Heavy-Air Madness,”, “Inner Sailing” and “There is No Lee Bow Effect.” Even better known and more widely read is Perry’s accessible: “Understanding Yacht Racing Rules”.
Don’t miss this opportunity and be sure to sign up before March 2nd to avoid late fees. To race, you’ll need to have paid your 2016 Fleet One dues – send your check to Pat Doyle ASAP if you still haven’t taken care of it.
