that's sad to hear that clubs are being priced out. do you guys still race the scots at all?Check out the Gulf Yachting Association web site (http://www.gya.org) for a list of clubs in your area and contact them. Many of the smaller clubs in the area struggle and are not much into racing anymore. The switch from flying Scot to Viper has left many small clubs behind because we cannot afford the boats.
To some extend yes, but I don't know how well attended the races are. In our case (Pelican Yacht Club), the vast majority of our members have lost interest in racing so we concentrate on recreational sailing. I hear that there is a growing fleet of Scots in TX (Dallas, Austin, ...). Several of our members sold their boat to Texans, so not all is lost.that's sad to hear that clubs are being priced out. do you guys still race the scots at all?
+1...you could do a whole lot worse. I heard there is a new builder coming on line.You are right traveling is easy. I’m just old now and hurt more when I set up and sail. I was a member of Fairhope Yacht club for many years and remember some of those races. The Sunfish used to race every week at Lake Forest and a buddy of mine and I raced Lasers across the bay at MYC MANY years ago. I think I remember a big Laser regatta at Fairhope that you participated in. Finding a boat for an old guy to single hand is a little difficult. Maybe I will get a Raider 16 and do events like the Mug Race. Thanks for responding.
Based on this comment, a Finn may not be the best choice but then I am also "old".I’m just old now and hurt more when I set up and sail.
