Just got off of the phone with Steve Lohmayer and he needs to know how many turkeys to buy, to be fried up for the party.
Who's onboard?

Frank why don't you tell me these things sooner?!?! I already made up my mind not to go this year and it actually can't happen now.
Next year I'd like to discuss starting out of the Islander so that us Northeners can leave our boats rigged from Steeplechase to Tradewinds. Having to rig for both (from the boats being completely apart) is a real pain.

I sent the following message to Rick:

Rick,

There has been some discussion about the Steeplechase venue and the difficulties the current venue presents. Anne's beach has become increasingly more difficult for the sailors and ground crews and with the permitting issue we are keen to find a better solution than what the current course offers. The option that seemed to be accepted by the interested teams was to start and finish at the Islander Resort with the Saturday stop over at UKSC. We would sail north on day one reversing the current course. I've been in contact with Ginette Hughes at UKSC and they are onboard with a couple minor conditions. There is a $15 per head fee to keep the boats at UKSC overnight this covers insurance and temporary club membership (Ginette please correct me if I got that wrong). We cannot bring our own alcohol onsite but the club bar will be open and available to us. I haven't spoken to the Islander but if this is something you'd be willing to get behind I suspect the Islander would be happy to have us.

Please let us know as soon as possible what you decide.

David Ingram

I like that idea both for the ease of logistics as well as giving you inside/outside sailing on each day..

And you'll be shooting Angelfish creek the wrong way smile

I can't think of a single time that the current was outgoing as we went through Angel fish creek...of course, this year will be the exception

As you all may know I started this race 30 years ago, with start out of the Caribbean Club. At that time the bar and boats got along just fine. After I bought Rick's Place Motel, we then had two friendly launching sites. I never dreamed that after selling the motel the Caribbean Club would be managed by radically crazy people.
That left Gilberts where at first they were very friendly. That is one year. Then the next year they were not. Then nice, then nasty. It has indeed been perplexing to all of us.
I do disagree with how bad Ann's Beach is. Boats go afloat only when they are not secured properly. We have been lucky the Village has not harrassed us about its use.
As you all might recall I suggest this new venue that David pointed out almost two years ago and pretty much was told it would not work. Now you want it. Fine. From my standpoint it is a lot easier to operate and much more comfortable than sitting on a sandy beach all day. And I don't have to clean my house for a Friday night meeting.
I am however not comfortable on how this was handled without conference with me. I would have thought I would be the first person you would have talked to about the change. Enough said!

If there are no objections, I will make the necessary changes to the NOR and SI's
Good sailing,
Rick

Can/will you make the arrangements with the Islander? They should at least know we are coming.

Rick,

Regarding Friday - 12-12-2014 - Mandatory Rum and Pizza party at the Islander Resort - sponsored by Mansmann & Moore, LLP and Mt. Gay Rum!!!!!

Time: Late afternoon start time - Have my first drink around then - sit and watch everyone rig their boats - it's best for me to stay out of Tim and Jake's space - I hear rigging the boat is a big deal......

Pizza, Mt. Gay Rum and beer - please bring your favorite mixer.

All welcome - no charge.

Rick,

I'd like to personally thank you for all the effort to keep this really great race alive despite all the challenges. Each of the few times I participated it has been an adventure of one sort or another, and I always wanted to come back once the bruises cleared up...

As to Anne's beach, I don't think you're allowed to tie off on Mangroves, which tends to make it dicey (get in trouble or go looking for your boat). Having someone like UKSC offer to allow the boats overnight at their facility is huge.

The bar facility can't hurt either, and I'm sure they'll make a small mint on those folks that night. How far is the club from Lomeyer's house?

I do recall spirited discussion about changing the start/route a few years ago, and the overall opposition at the time. I presume the bi-polar attitude at Gilbert's may have swayed those opinions over time..

So, if the locations eventually DO change to Islander/UKSC, could this possibly open up the event to boats slightly larger than beachcats?

It would give me an excuse to ride the coat-tails of you hotshots...


Jay

Rick,

Rather than a mutiny, I believe this is the conclusion of the conversation you originally started. You started the ball rolling and the great debate began. But the debate itself really needed to happen at the sailor's level. The good news is, it appears we have majority support for this venue. The race is evolving without being forced to change. Also, a connection between the Steeplechase and Tradewinds now has an opportunity to form.

Personally, I hope the roots and spirit of the Steeplechase remain intact and this requires your full support of the race. Therefore, if you don't hang out with us at the Islander we may come trash your house again anyway.
