Dear NYC Members, NYC Sailing Members, GHYC Members, NCS Members, Crew & Guests,
The 2017 Mid-Winter Sailing One Design Meeting will be held at the New York Yacht Club (NYYC) in Newport, Rhode Island over the weekend of Friday, March 10 to Sunday, March 12. All Nantucket One-Design sailors and racers, past, present and prospective, are welcome. The weekend will start on Friday afternoon at 2:00 pm with Protest Committee “Mock Hearing” Training lead by Eric Robins followed by a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception at the NYYC from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. Saturday’s activities start at the NYYC at 8:00 am with a full breakfast, a review of island sailing programs, and a preview of Nantucket Race Week followed by the topic:
“SAILING FAST into the Future!”
This program will focus on two things:
First, with the help of North Sails, we will take a look at sail design, trim and go-fast tactics “Sail shape and power in different conditions and situations.”
Second, we will spend some serious time thinking about the future of sailing, and sailboat racing on Nantucket -- collectedly thinking about where we want to be and how we plan to get there. The homework assignment for everyone is to come prepared with thoughts and ideas!
Lunch will be served and there will be individual fleet meetings thereafter. The day concludes with 6:00 pm cocktails and dinner at NYYC Harbour Court. We have included information regarding hotel reservation suggestions. A more comprehensive brochure will be forthcoming in the months ahead.
We are looking forward to a great meeting and hope to see everyone there.
Race Committee Chair
