Cary Diehl, our Secretary/Treasurer is now accepting 2022 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 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. There have been reports that the linked Google form does not work on certain computers at work. If so, try a home computer or mobile device.

The Nashville Equalizer was another fantastic Regatta down South. Boats started arriving Thursday with most setting up Friday. The crews were treated to a band on the porch of the club along with food and drinks. Five races were sailed Saturday in big wind and sunny skies. Paul's party was held Saturday evening with the highlight being Paul's infamous gumbo. Although lighter winds prevailed on Sunday, we were still able to get in 2 more races for a total of seven races sailed. Extreme2 came in first, Challenge in second and Skyhawk was third and also the top amateur boat. Thank you to James and David for organizing a great regatta and to Paul for graciously inviting everyone into his home.

The 2022 edition of the St. Pete NOOD did not disappoint. The regatta was attended by 16 S2 7.9s which the highest number of S2 7.9s in a decade, if not ever. Three days of racing were filled with good times, good wind, sun and temperature near 80 degrees on Sunday.

Congratulations to Matros on Winning the
St. Pete NOOD
