Well, we are 16 days away from the Slip to Ship Regatta (May 23-24, 2009). This is a fun two day distance regatta in its 24th year. It is a blast and we are ready to put S2S "Back on the Map."

I have listed the top three reasons not to miss it this year.

1. New club: Katrina be damned. We now have a beautiful facility, full kitchen, fuller bar expansive balcony.

2. New management/New Value: With the openning of the new building, we have sailors at the helm. We have heard your complaints and are responding.
Entry Fee: $50.00 (single handed), $60.00 (double handed). Late registration (after May 15, 2009) will be an additional $10.00. Entry fee will include the following:
a. a custom S2S regatta t-shirt for you and your crew (if applicable)
b. contintental breakfast Saturday morning
c. Beer and chicken out on the Island
d. A Saturday Cajun dinner extrodinaire created by Robbie Halstad;
e, An automatic entry in the sailor's door prize;
f. Two Raffle tickets for the raffle;

3. Old school: We remember what makes a regatta fun: good wind, good food, good drink and friends. This year, we are striving to bring back the fun from the days of old. Call it our Reggatta stimulus package.

Remember, camping is permitted on our grounds.
