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

Relentless, skippered by Tac Boston wins the 2014 Class Championship.

The CCR started off slow with light winds on Thursday where only one race was sailed before the wind completely died and an impending storm on the way sent the boats in for the day. Friday brought no wind and thus races were canceled after a trip out to the racecourse was just a tease from the weather man. Luckily the Banquet made up for no racing on Friday. We had a fantastic meal from MBYC. We were also graced with a special guest. Scott Grahm, one of the boats designers was in attendance. Scott is really down to earth and was treated as a celebrity. Saturday was a beautiful day with wind. Three races were sailed with fierce competition at the top. Second Wind, K2, and Relentless each had a spot at the top of the leader board. In the end the Boston brothers and the crew on Relentless were able to pull out the Championship. Second overall went to K2 and third overall went to Second Wind. Second Wind also took home the Amateur Trophy.

The S2 7.9 Class would like to thank Scott Derby and Roger Gamache for all of the hard work organizing the regatta. We would also like to thank our PRO, Barb Gamache, for doing all that she could to make sure we had good races on the water even with the tough wind conditions. Lastly, we would like to thank MBYC for hosting our class at their beautiful facility. Join us in 2015 at Lake Minnetonka in Wayzata, MN.
