1 May 2015 Contents Northwest Commodore’s Corner Race Report Race Registration Form Officers 1 2 4 3 Northwest Catalina Regatta Catalina Regatta June 20th!!! Tom Madden Hopefully by now you have all been out for at least one sailing adventure. I mean one where you actually uncovered the sails, shut off the engine and propelled the boat solely on the power of the wind. OK: if not, you still have a few weeks to get ready for the NW Catalina Regatta on June 20th. Yes, it will be pretty much the same format as last year. I already have the race committee chair, committee boat and venue ready to go. Letters soliciting gifts for the event have already gone out, and our first haul-‐out is already in hand. So mark your calendars, send in your applications, and join us for a great day of racing, camaraderie, and a fine dinner. This year we are going easy on the volunteers who usually sweat over cooking brats and burgers all afternoon, and we are going with pizza. Supplement that with some potato salad, maybe some coleslaw, and there you are: instant party! Races again are planned for three round-‐the-‐buoy races, with the first race starting at 10:30AM. If the wind cooperates at all, we will get three races in and be back at the docks mid afternoon for refreshments and raffle activities before dinner. I have again managed to talk Kirk into MC’ing the event, and with Monique’s help and encouragement, we should have a great time raffling off the items and presenting the trophies. 2 Boats lining up for the start of one of the races in the 2012 CAPS Regatta. Such great fun to race against other boats of the same make and size. (More or less) So now is the time, the Registration Form is in this newsletter, or you can get on the site (CAPSfleet1.com) and get your registration form there, then send it to me! Racing all day is only $35 per boat, and for the dinner is one $15 per person! However, the price for the event and the dinner each go up by $5 if you don’t get them in by June 12th. (And it makes it really hard on the race committee to set the classes and assign the ratings for the boats). See you all out there! Tom Madden And off they go! 3 THE ALL CATALINA ASSOCIATION OF PUGET SOUND 2015 Officers Commodore Ken McKenzie (425) 823-2849 [email protected] ViceCommodore Tom Madden (206) 382-8308 jen[email protected] Treas./Sec.
