Boston (BOS) or Providence (PVD) are the best options. Both are about an hour and a half drive.

Boston is an hour to hour and a half, without traffic... which can be crazy at certain times.
You can get a connector flight from Boston for pretty cheap into Hyannis/Barnstable airport which is 5 minutes from the club. There are multiple car rental agencies at the local airport too.
Bus fare from Boston to Hyannis is $19.

If anyone is interested, you could come early for NA's and sail in some of our very competitive events which all get 15-20 F18s:
Hyannis Regatta July 29-31st (same venue as NA's)
Buzzards Bay Regatta August 5-7 (45 minutes from Hyannis)
New England 100 August 13-14th (Location TBD 45-1.5 from Hyannis)
Canadian Nationals Sept. 3-5 (Venise, Quebec, 5.5 hour from Hyannis)
You could even come earlier if you wanted!
I will arrange storage in Hyannis, transportation to and from Hyannis airport or to bus terminal for Boston, possible boat transportation, definitely to Hyannis Regatta, and possibly Buzzards Bay if you can't leave a car.
The ideal way to do this would be to come up and leave a car if you have that luxury. I can probably provide some floor space for Hyannis Regatta too if that helps.

Don't do it! He's lying! He is 5'3" and weighs 275, and has almost no sailing experience. And, he is using my sail #! laugh



OMG - I've seen his video's too. He keeps trying to eat the mainsheet. I think it must look like a Slim-Jim to him or something. Too bad he left the West Coast and started eating. He was just starting to get good...his crew might be available. Now he was GOOD.

Glad to hear you west coasters are coming! Save money and pick up a Wildcat here? Hoping to sell our Demo boat right before NA's and open up a new one for the event. Can't blame me for trying!

Online registration is now open on the HYC website here:
F18 NA Registration

The Notice of Race is available as well:
F18 NA NOR

Yeah, the early registration deadline is a long way off, but we're putting together some awesome incentives to make it worthwhile. Stay tuned as we lock up the details.
