Speed Clinic


I propose a speed clinic so that we can get a day of practice in for the Fall Classic the following weekend. We need to hold off those hard charging speedsters from MI that keep taking the trophy out of the area.

Unofficial Nite World Championship


The Unofficial Nite World Championships is scheduled for December 13/14 in the Twin Cities area. There are many suitable lakes within 30 minutes drive. This is the best time of year for the northern lakes prior to the snow, and it's hoped that sailors from southern Wisconsin will make the short trip . It's a casual early-season regatta with plenty of opportunity to share tuning ideas and experimentation. Saturday night's activities will feature dinner at "The Table" -- details to be provided at registration. Housing requests are welcomed with advance notice. Final lake location to be determined Thursday, December 11th with details found that week on the unofficial hotline, 952-471-7831.
