Worrell 1000 Reunion Race

Preliminary Notice of Race – 2019
(Revision 14MAR2018)

“The Worrell 1000 Reunion Race” (W1KRR) is an offshore long distance beach catamaran sailboat race to be held on/about May 2019 in the waters between Florida and Virginia Beach, VA. The race will cover approximately 1000 miles with overnight stops at multiple locations along the East Coast of the United States. Through a collaborative agreement between “Worrell 1000, Inc.” and “Sail Series Promotions USA, Inc.”, an organization has been formed to oversee the Research and Development, and Running of the race. This combined organization will be the Organizing Authority for the Worrell 1000 Reunion Race.

The race will be governed by the rules as defined by the current edition of the “The Racing Rules of Sailing” (RRS 2017-2020) and applicable Class Rules, except as modified by this NoR and/or the Worrell 1000 Reunion Race Sailing Instructions. Boats will be 20 foot production beach catamarans of a single type. The Organizing Authority is making efforts to tentatively have a limited number of charter boats available. Final boat type has still to be determined and will be announced in a subsequent formal W1KRR NoR and/or W1KRR Sailing Instructions. Registration information, definitive dates, final course and checkpoint locations, and further information will be detailed in updates/revisions to this NoR and/or in the W1KRR Sailing Instructions and will be published soon after the completion of 2018 Florida 300 to take place in May 2018.

Additional contact information along with names, web locations, etc. will be advertised as the Organizing Authority continues to discuss further conditions for this race.

02/23/18 07:59 PM New Nacra Infusion MKIII - Epoxy F18 [by Damon Linkous]
Calling on the F18 guys to comment on the new Nacra F18 Infusion MKIII and the changes to the F18 class rules allowing all epoxy hulls.

Nacra mentions the following changes:

What is changed:
  • New daggerboard position: more to the front.
  • New daggerboard case: will fit straight and curved. The case is ready for full foiling.
  • New progrip
  • Option for a decksweeper
  • Hulls are made from Epoxy, allowed by the class by October 2018.

more pics from Nacra

What do you think this means to the class?

02/16/18 04:56 PM 2018 Sarasota OD Midwinters [by MadmanAcrossTheWater]
Hello from WI,

Just wondering if the One Design Midwinters in Sarasota (Friday 16MAR - Sunday 18MAR) is on anyone else's radar? We are already registered (F18) and would enjoy the company of some additional competitors. Call it an excuse to do some homework for 2018 Worlds.

02/12/18 10:23 PM Merged Forum - Distance Racing [by Damon Linkous]

Just a note to let you know that I've merged the Distance Racing forum into the General Sailing Forum. This is part of an ongoing effort to make the forums easier to use.

In general, I believe that less separate forums increase user engagement unless there is a good reason for separation.

The regional and boat type forums make sense to me, so those will stay for now.

02/09/18 11:26 PM Homenkol vs Mclube [by PTP]
Seeing that I can't seem to source Holmenkol SealnGlide anymore, was thinking of trying Mclube for my new spin. I used Holmenkol before and seemed to work well.
Anyone have an opinion on which is better and a source for the Holmenkol?

02/07/18 07:20 AM RIP Mary Wells, 1942 - 2018 [by Damon Linkous]

I just found out today that Mary passed away January 28th. She had suffered from COPD for some time died after a week in the hospital with family by her side.

Here daughter Stacy wrote a very touching and detailed account of her final days and made it public on Facebook. Since the post is public, if you have a Facebook account you can leave comments for the family.

CRAM will be very interested to know about the Portsmouth or SCHRS debate. We have an ongoing discussion on if we should move away from Portsmouth.

We're flattered to hear you call Cat Fight a cant miss event. We hope it will grow.

01/28/18 08:32 PM Topics to discuss [by Mark Schneider]
Here are some unresolved debates.

Portsmouth or SCHRS.... What's the best solution for a region and their organizing authorities.?

What do you do about a yardstick boat that gets faster with design advances (F18s and decksweepers) when you don't have enough data to run the Portsmouth engine?

What rating would you use for a modern foiling A cat?

What do you do with huge legacy of F16 designs under various rules in portsmouth or SCHRS?

When should a one design class in a region decide to race with in the handicap fleet?

Is there any buzz about the non Olympic fleet getting into the foiling N17?

What teams are forming to challenge Bora for the US slot.

Whats the fair way to manage foiling boats in 2018?

The junior racing scene has stabalized on Nacra 15s. How could your region support/advise a wanna be junior sailor in this environment?

One design fleets come and go in a region.... What are the success stories... What is the predictable outcome.... What's it take to keep the fun factor a constant?

Any interest in starting a where are they now thread on past contributors to cat sailor?

CRAM and CRAW have decided to do another Catfight... What are the other Big Can't miss events this season?

I gotta million of em!!!
