This year on July 5th-8th Annapolis Yacht Club (AYC) will be hosting the "Junior Olympic Sailing Festival:Chesapeake Open"/HCA-NA Jr North American Championship.

Starting with "Opening Ceremonies" on July 5th, which will include a parade by the competitors along the Annapolis waterfront to the Sailor's Hall of Fame Musuem ... (the ceremonies will be conducted by Mr Gary Jobson), and will be followed by (3) days of racing on July 6-8th at the mouth of the Severn River and Chesapeake Bay.

The "Multi" Juniors will be competing using H16's, launching from "Bembe Beach" at Annapolis Sailing School. The "Multi/Hobie" Juniors will be competing for two different trophies. The first is the Mr Charles G. Parry Award (the "Mr Chuck" Trophy) which is awarded to the Eastern JO "Multihull" Champion ... and for the HCA-NA Junior North American Championship Award.

For more information please go to:

This promises to be an OUTSTANDING event ...

I need to thank some people for helping to make this event possible ...

1) of course Annapolis Yacht Club and Severn Sailing Assoc ..

2) Annapolis Sailing School ... for even entertaining the idea of allowing us to use their beach ... then for saying YES !!! Please note ... THIS IS THE ONLY BEACH IN ANNAPOLIS/EASTPORT !!!! To Jason Pinter and the Korz's thanks!!! (there are "multihullers" undercover hiding everywhere !!!!)

3) West River Sailing Center, Mr Constantine Seremetis and Mr Chris Ford for providing their Signal/Comittee Boat for our use on our race circle.

4) Members of RHYC whom have volunteered their time and boats for a "back-up" Signal Boat and many "Mark" Boats.

5) CRAC ... for use of their storage trailer and set of "BIG PINKS" ... a set of 7' Tetra's from the 96' Atlanta Olympics (thanks Jill for getting those for us years ago !!!)

6) Hobie Fleet 54 for manpower, a tent, flags etc ...

7) Hobie Div11 whose members are "loaning" their boats to Juniors (NOT Chartering ... but LOANING ... big difference !!!), volunteering manpower, loaning equip, conducting seminars and training Junior Sailors for this event ...

8) The HCA-NA that has provided $$$'s, manpower, support, etc. Mr Mark Santorelli/HCA-NA Race Director has been engaged to be the PRO, Ms C. Bradshaw will be attending also. A BIG THANKS to Mr Chris Wessels !!!!

9) Mr Mark Schnieder ...


At first, when Chris approached Mark Schnieder and I w/ this request we thought ... IMPOSSIBLE ... the JO's are in Annapolis next year ... so we need an invitation and where will we launch from ??? (... or was it where do we launch from so we can get an invit' to the event ...) But it has come together nicely w/ the help of the Greater Multihull Community .... Thanks All.

Hi,

So far we have three teams registered from CALIFORNIA ... one from CANADA ... more coming from New Jersey ... up-state New York ... of course Maryland

... but we are still looking for Junior Teams from the southeastern portion of the United States

And we do have charter boats availible ... the Hobie sailors such as Bob Merrick ... Geoff Becker ... Jimmie Glanden and many more have offered their H16's for charter at a very low rate for this event ....

So ... book some airline tickets and join us at one of the finest yacht clubs in the United States ... ANNAPOLIS YACHT CLUB ...

There are "threads" running on the Hobie Community Forum/Hobie racing ... and at the AYC website www.annapolisyc.com

Hi Pete,

This event "kicks-off" on Thursday, July 5th ....

So the only pic's yet are of a bunch of adults sitting around a big table at a "Organizing Authority" meeting ... and we have had a more then a few ... AYC/Mr John Morgan/Ms Linda Ambrose are organizing the heck out of this event ... and it should be a great event ...

I haven't checked today ... but as of Sunday morning there was 169 boats registered ....

I'm off to run some "missions" .... I still have a few alligators to stab ...(you know, they sneak up on you and bite you in the a**, while your trying to drain the swamp ...), but I'm down to the baby alligators ... I hope ....

We'll make sure to post some pic's of the Jr's racing ... when we have some ...

I'll wait and see what these guys report: http://www.youtube.com/user/THECRAZYSAILORS

umm.... YES actually.

The region was hit by a killer storm on friday which knocked out power to half the area for up to a week.... when it kicked back on... it killed the router at Annapolis Sailing School and so some of us were out of touch .... coupled with a huge heat wave... the stories are now being written.... stay tuned.. pics are up on facebook... results were up from the committee boat. details coming.

Bottom line... a fantastic success

Hi,

That video is the first 6 mins of "Gary" speaking for ... maybe a half hour .... (you can see me on Gary's right w/ the Panama Hat every now and then ...) ... he talked ... and talked ... and talked ... he was GREAT!!!! And then at the end a pic was taken of Gary standing on the H16 ... w/ JR Sailer's beside him and in front ... A GREAT PICTURE!!!

... but the best was Gary sitting on the Starboard bow of a H16 ... Carly Madge and Joseph Bello sitting beside him ... and Gary giving Carly a signed/autographed copy of his book w/ a personal message ... (CoCo, Thanks for the use of your boat .... BUT WE NEED THAT PIC!!!!!)

.... and this happened because Gary "just happened" to stop by for our Skipper's Meeting .... ( Yaaa ... right, the man is "scheduled" so tightly it's unbelievable ...)

... a "favor" was asked ... just stop by and spend some time w/ our Juniors as they get ready in the morning ...

It didn't appear on any "official" schedule ... and when later we we're asked why we were not answering our phones/radios ... we said Gary stopped for a visit ... and was talking ....

... at the same time Ms Taren Teague w/ a number of the RC Judges had stopped by to see our launch site/Skipper's Meeting also ... and they reported on what was happening ... it was the "talk" at the AYC bar that evening how Gary went to the Hobie site to be w/ the Jr Hobie Sailors !!!
