    So are you sure you want string sails? To start?

    Hi Arr4ws, What type of sailing are you going to do with this boat? Thinking sail choice.

    Yes we did, and we took some notes, as (of course) GMORA (what ever that is) came up a lot. :-) I am not going to get into a big spiel of my take on it all right at this moment as I am still digesting the conversation. But I will and am quite optimistic about enthusiasm and energy looking forward. If I can share one quick takeaway -which will come up more in the future, it is that we all should look at where we are now and why we are here, what got us here?, and then ask if what we are (have been) doing, (following the past) is really for the best? (best= fun, attendance, growth, etc) gotta run!

    What would we talk about? The regatta's and races that yacht clubs and businesses are running in Maine these days? and how they can be more fun? That would be good to talk about? No?

    bowtostern is spot on here. To that end, the GMORA Board of Directors sends out a survey to its membership each year, asking for ideas on how to improve the sport, the circuit, the regattas, everything. Now GMORA does not run regattas -- yacht clubs/race organizers run regattas. GMORA's primary purpose is season scoring and promotion. We pass along the input we receive on the survey to member clubs and race organizers. So here is your chance. The survey typically goes out via e-mail to all members of record during the off season. I know it has been discussed at recent board meerings, so it will probably go out in the next couple of months. Members who receive their survey should take the time to respond with some thoughtful input on what can be done to make things more fun and get more people to come out and play with us. Don't just check off an answer; please fill in the comments section with some constructive input. If you are not a GMORA member, but want to help figure out a solution, then become one. For those without a boat/PHRF cert, an individual membership is $10. That is less than what you'd spend on a couple rum drinks at your favorite Old Port establishment. Agreed... Speak up everyone! The moment I get back I will help put the Survey together!!!
