Yes, I have been remiss in visiting SA. Harpoonette and I have discussed about we gotta get a schedule out and we get busy and life happens and it doesn't happen. Thanks for the kick in the pants today Lindy.
We don't have squat for the spring. Jim Bowie pretty much nailed most of what we've been considering. AYC has two weekends scheduled for Gov. cup. this year. Weekend one is for centerboard boats Oct. 17 & 18. So the scheduled is so far, Summer Solstice 6/20 & 6/21, Fall Dinghyfest Sept. 19 & 20, Gov. cup centerboard Oct. 17 & 18. and Wurstfest Nov. 7th & 8th. TwoGray since yer rolling yer thumbs, do you know (if I am remembering right) is it Lake Worth boat club or Fort Worth boat club that wanted us to include a scheduled event this year?
Last thought was: Do we just stage our own get together race/regatta/party at one of the central TX lakes and just do a distance race keep your own time sailing race and use DPN numbers to figure results whilst drinking a beer and eating a burger no fee cook out and beer drink regatta like we have done upon occasion in the past history.
I'll be back and yes we could do both dinghyfests and have a spring event. But RCYC twice in one year is kinda meh for me.
P.S. This is a thought about getting something at least for the spring. I Talked with One Gray and she confirmed it was Lake Worth boat club and the event is scheduled of the middle of September. I'd like to get at least one spring event. Other then maybe Spring Dinghy at RCYC. We used to do a distance race at Stillhouse hollow lake called the Bridge too far. It involved racing from the Marina at the bottom end of the lake up the main body and about 7 miles up the reservoir till we rounded the boat ramp no wake mark just short of the bridge and back again. Without having any possibility of support boats my thought was to keep the course down in the main body of the lake and make a distance course around permanent marks . That way if anyone gets into trouble at least they can be seen. End at the dock or the beach at the pavilion and record your time. Drinks, Grill some burgers, sausage or dawgs, everyone can bring a side dish or maybe a dessert.
