    Seventy Miles in 48 Hours

    Am I missing something here? Seems like 70 miles in 48 hours isn't very impressive at all...

    Event Insurance

    Yeah that's a huge help actually. I reached out to Gowrie group to see what we can work out; seems like that's the way to go for something like this.

    Do you have a connection to K&K? I couldn't find anything on their website for this specific type of thing.

    Event Insurance

    We're looking to host our first regatta in about 10 years at CU Boulder, but have been told we can't do it at Union res unless we get the event insured. It seems like water events are pretty hard to find insurance for, so any suggestions on where to turn here would be much appreciated.

    Great idea about reaching out to the editor. They posted a little story on us yesterday and even chipped in to our campaign.

    Heard those AC-72s are pretty easy to get the hang of

    We're actually headed out to galveston at 10pm tomorrow to race this weekend. Not looking forward to the drive but if the weather holds out for us it should be a good time. Good idea to pool resources with other schools but we're still trying to build a solid base for ourselves before including anyone under the sun

    We tried to make it to the park city annual regatta last year but had a couple last minute issues prevent it! pm me with a good email to contact you at and let's try to set up some sort of scrimmage. We have 6 420s as well (no chase boat, that's the purpose of the campaign), but hopefully soon that will change and we can host yall as well! Hey man, 2 threads = twice the views. Shameless advertising tactics but desperate times call for desperate measures

    Good to know... We're a hybrid right now, we're trying to generate interest in sailing in general as well as make a name for ourselves as a collegiate racing program. Mainly due to weird school rules and bs red tape we cant do any sort of tryouts or mandatory practice days so we have to make it more inclusive. Hopefully soon we can separate into 2 separate organizations to handle both classes of sailors.

    I really appreciate it! Next time you're in Colorado be sure to give us a call and we'll show you first hand what we have going on! We've been on union res recently since they do a couple regular races each week. Unfortunately it's more of the dead calm than howling wind but beggars can't be choosers I guess I've been pretty active on Dillon the past couple years trimming in the J/24 fleet and we've built up a good relationship with Brandon Kass of community sailing as well as union sailing club up in Longmont. I'll definitely reach out to those other guys and see what kind of support I can stir up! Is there a crew forum or anything for S20's? A lot of people on the team are looking for opportunities

    A case against colored lines?

    I'm a fan of colors if only for the fact that they can prevent a mishap during races. Especially in the event lines get wrapped up and tangled, it'd be pretty tough to work with 3 black lines all mixed together. Plus there're some pretty sweet colored ones out there nowadays
  13. For all the Colorado sailors out there (few and far between, I know) yall may be interested to know that a group of students has started up a sailing team at CU Boulder. We're a really new organization and dont get much help from the university so we're looking for community support to help us raise money and spread awareness for our team. Links below are for our facebook page, website, and fundraising campaign. https://www.facebook.com/cubouldersailing/ http://www.cusailingteam.com/ https://campaigns.communityfunded.com/projects/cusailing/get-cu-sailing-safety-boating/
