Is $30 membership worth it?

One of the biggest benefits to being a member is that you receive a reduced price on a new mast. Paul Latour has graciously put together a system and means of purchasing a new mast. To receive the discount, you must be a current member, and also have been a member the preceding year. The discount is $300. Following is a report from our Secretary/Treasurer on the status of the mast blanks:

mastblanks213

This February 2013 photo documents over half of the mast blanks safely kept by JSI in St. Petersburg, FL.  Your  Secretary-Treasurer documented all thirty blanks stored by JSI for us.  Mast blanks cost $900 to persons who have been class members continuously for at least one and the previous year, and $1200 to others.   JSI charges separately to finish a blank (pricing varies by parts recycled and aging; I connect buyers with JSI for details.  

JSI also stores spreader blanks for us. The class owns two sets of finished painted spreaders stored by JSI available for $250+shipping.  Connect with Paul if you need these.

Just want you to know that your money and masts are well cared for and accountable by your class leaders.

Mail Paul or the class president if you have any questions.

Paul Latour, Secretary-Treasurer

Congratulations to the crew of Rebel on winning the Sarasota One Design Regatta. A report from Al Wolczyk on the race: "Too bad the participation was down for the Sarasota Mid-Winter one design regatta. Only three S2 7.9's showed up, Sperling, Wolczyk and Gregg. The weather was perfect, sun shining, 78 to 80 with winds 10 to 11. We got three races in on Friday and five on Saturday, crews were about to jump ship when they indicated a fifth race on Saturday. Sunday was a postponement on shore with a forecast of wind in the afternoon, needless to say we all packed up and headed out before traffic built. The Sailing Squadron were gracious hosts as usual and we can't thank them enough. I hope the class can have a better showing next year, the Albacore class had 35 for the weekend and expect more for their Internationals this week including 12 that came from England by container."
