The following business items were discussed:

1. Fleet #1 2002 Annual Dinner

  • Phil Perkins is looking into doing it at St Francis vs. Corinthian.
  • Tentative dates: Saturday November 9, 2002 and Saturday November 16, 2002.
  • Trying to keep the cost down to less than $40/head.
  • Will try to get support for wine for the dinner as in the past.

2. Fleet #1 Dues

  • Will be emailed this weekend, snail mail will be sent to all who have not responded.
  • Another 2 weeks and then phone calls will be made.
  • Encourage associate members to pay dues- benefits would enable them to get on email list, and get first hand info regarding fleet.

3. Rules & Tactics Seminar

  • Feb 9th with Dick Rose, Tom Roberts and Mark Reynolds.
  • Clothing sale at that time with Karen Rosembaun- to be set up.
  • March 23rd with Dave Perry, John Craig and a select panel including the top ofthe fleet and sail makers.
  • Agreed to 2-days, $100, full attendance required and to get scored as a race.
  • If one day out of the 2, one cannot attend, one can send a major player such as tactician or helmsman to replace.
  • Class will work to sanction alternate seminars (e.g., North U) to attend if conflict prevents member from attending Class seminar.
  • Member is to make application to ExComm for permission to attend alternate.
  • Ask J120 to attend in order to maximize.

4. Fleet #1 Website

  • Randy will work up at privacy statement.
  • Eden will monitor what gets posted on bulletin board.
  • Crew list added -with fee?

5. Regatta Weigh Ins

  • Spring One Design (3/16-17)- Phil and Dave T.
  • PCC's (6/8-9)- Jaren and David O.
  • NOOD (8/31-9/1)- Randy and Eden.
  • BBS (9/12-15)- Dave T, Phil and Eden.

6. Sail Tags in Counters & Non Counters

  • National Sail tags- cannot use them out here if bought for East Coast nationals.
  • Will get special exemption for sail tags used for Key West and similar regattas.

7. North Americans

  • ExComm was unanimously in favor of having N/As here summer 2003.
  • Understanding is that National Class will sanction event with 89 spinnaker and the then current National weight limit, but with Fleet One owner driver.

8. Starting Line Congestion

  • Don Trask suggested there is concern re starting line congestion.
  • Don has come up with a fleet splitting proposal to get a "little more control on the number of J105s at the starting line."
  • This concept would split the fleet evenly and not on the basis of standings.
  • Don was asked to put this idea in writing for comment.


There being no further business to be discussed, a motion was made, seconded and passed to adjourn the meeting at 2030 hours.

Respectfully submitted,

Randy Paul
