Amateur Division

The 2019 edition of the Class Championship had varying weather conditions, from sunny and no wind to crazy wind to fog and rain. On Thursday after check-in about half the fleet went out for the practice race on a beautiful evening with good wind. Friday was a beautiful sunny day, however there was no wind and the Race Committee held us at the dock. Saturday looked promising with the threat of rain and big wind later in the day. The first race on Saturday started with 21 boats on the line and winds around 10 knots. The wind quickly began to build on the second leg and was in the high teens by the end of the race. The second race started with winds in the high teens and most boats had their smaller jib up. As the race went on, the gusts kept getting higher and higher with gusts of 30 knots seen on some boats. The downwind legs were interesting to say the least. Yards before the finish, the top three boats were hit with a large gust and all three broached. With numerous boats broaching and winds continuing to increase with a storm front impending, Race Committee smartly sent everyone back in. Saturday night was the annual banquet with fantastic food provided by Racine Yacht Club. Upon arrival to RYC on Sunday morning, competitors were met with rain, wind and fog. The S2 BOD along with RC decided to call the regatta since you were unable to see the other side of the harbor because of the fog. A special owners meeting was called to change the rules so that one race constitutes a regatta. After only two races Smile & Wave and Fun Uncle were tied with 4 points. It was decided to award co-champions as only two races were sailed. The annual owners meeting was held Friday afternoon with some upcoming rules changes. Look for meeting minutes soon. Thank you to Racine Yacht Club for putting on a great regatta and we look forward to seeing you in Holland, MI next year.

Sailors of the 2019 Nashville Equalizer were met with sunny skies and tons of fun. Boats started arriving on Thursday evening with the rest showing up by early Friday afternoon. Most of the boats went out for a practice sail on Friday afternoon and were met with a beautiful sail. Racing commenced on Saturday with 17 boats on the starting line with winds out of the SE at 5-10kts. We were able to get in 4 races with many boats changing positions throughout the day. All of the crews had some sort of fun on Saturday evening. Most went to Paul's famous gumbo party, while others went to the Nashville Predators hockey game and also to the country bars in downtown Nashville. Sunday was a gorgeous day for water skiing and rowing, however that meant no wind and racing was cancelled at 11:00am with most boats on the road by 1:00pm. After 4 races, Navigator was crowned the Equalizer Champion and Itch was the Winner of the Professional division. A big thank you to Craig Dooley and the members of PPYC and the Race Committee for putting on a great regatta, and also Paul Latour for graciously hosting the class for a fantastic party. Nashville did not disappoint and we look forward to seeing you in Nashville next year.

Congratulations to Navigator for winning the Amateur Division and Overall.

Congratulations to Itch for winning the Professional Division of the

Cary Diehl, our Secretary/Treasurer is now accepting 2020 Membership Applications. You can pay and fill out the form completely online here. This year you will get a sticker to put on your vehicle or trailer to show your support of the S2 7.9 Class. Decals are no longer required to be placed on your boat, however you are still required to be a class member to participate in Class Sanctioned events. Membership for the class is only $40/ year, which is significantly less than Class membership in other boats of similar size: Melges 20- $500/year, Melges 24- $225/year, J70- $100/year, and J24 $90/year. In addition to supporting the Class, your dues go towards the class website, the nearly completed rudder replacement option and most importantly the mast replacement program. Being a current class member also entitles you to a discount if you are ever in need of a new mast or rudder.

2020 Membership Applications

The 2020 Class Championship, Lake Huron and Lake Erie Championship have all been Cancelled

Unfortunately we have had to make the tough decision to cancel/postpone the Class Championship, Lake Huron and Lake Erie Championship for 2020. With the ongoing COVID crisis and increasing amount of cases, we are unable to justify having the regattas with all of the risks involved to the crews, support staff and family members upon return home. The 2021 CCR will be in Holland, which will be the 40th anniversary of the S2 7.9. The 2022 CCR will be in Port Huron. As of now, the Nashville Equalizer in October is still on. Stay safe and we hope to see you later in the year or next year.
