I donated all of my old windsurfing gear (racing - some barely used) to the local sailing club to increase awareness. Seeing kids on high-tech (well, for the late 90s) boards/sails should help increase participation...

Jake, can you add the following classes to the regatta?

- oldest sailable yacht. Where is that egyptian cotton sail? smile
- (my favorite) The annual Buh Tugly memorial award (obviously, for the worst looking - but still sailing- craft).

I scored our Wave Fleet Racing Series from Saturday's first of the year here at Put-in-Bay, Ohio. Last year we got in 68 races just in our series, not counting regattas attended.
Our Key Largo Fleet got in 92 races during the winter -- over 150 series-only racing. Guess that is why both of the fleets do so well at major events.
Nothing beats time on the water.

Came is 60% under budget for the tropies I was assigned to make for the Don Coe Memorial Regatta in Clear Lake.
22mph sustained, with gusts to 31 btw. Wicked sailing this weekend!

Our work continues at Sail Sand Point in Seattle, www.sailsandpoint.org All the Waves are ready for the new season. Updating our six H-16's is ongoing. Installing new "Bobs" is nearly done. All local cat sailor volunteers are welcome to stop in and help out.

Our Fast and Fun program is underway.
Our next two events are Kirkland downtown Marina June 20, and Luther Burbank Park, Mercer Island June 21. Looking for volunteer skippers for both events. We will also have nine new Hobie Cat Kayaks at the Fast and Fun Free outreach programs.
Big thanks to all our volunteers. Without their support, we would not have the success we enjoy.

I too washed my boat, then took it to Madcatter, hired a babysitter, got the boat off the trailer and registered.

Michelle and I then got scared of the wind, so we went out to help with RC for two days. Had a blast as always!

Lots of RC work coming up this summer, a good amount of them in youth classes.

Not to mention Hobie membership.

Just got back from putting the dock in the water. Tomorrow is tape and the first coat of bottom paint on the Sabots. We'll move two of the new Open Bics from the warehouse to the club too.

Today, nada,
but I did set up some user friendly google maps for my club and help out with the website. I also translated some of our forms into English for our international visitors. My aim in general is to lower the threshold for new people to come in and check things out.

Just spent over an our trying to devise a cat superior to the Laser and Optimist in key aspects: as a kids trainer, teen/adult one design racer and cruiser, while also safer, simpler, lighter and cheaper.

Just dreaming, of course.

I know and that is very unfortunate. But that's why most people buy used Waves for $2,000-$2,500.

I got into trading old Hobie parts (shortened, bent-straight H14 mast off my mast pile with good boom) for H16 batten set with an older gentleman who owns lakefront property. 8^)

I've loaded my GRAVELY Tractor w/ 42" mower deck, Echo Weedwacker and Backpack Blower into my F150 Ford to drive down RHYC and start to cut/trim/clean up the 7-8 acres of developed property for the sailing events being held on June 19th through 21st at RHYC. Also inflate and check "marks" condition for equiping/setting three different courses

So it looks like I have several different days of work over the next several weeks ....

Tomorrow is Day 5 of the first week of summer sailing camp I'm teaching exclusively on Waves. This is the 4th summer I've been teaching this camp. I've already started spamming the forum with tons of video clips of kids sailing beach cats.
