Cary Diehl, our new Secretary/Treasurer is now accepting 2019 Membership Applications. You can pay and fill out the form completely online HERE. This year you will get a third sticker to put on your vehicle or trailer to show your support of the S2 7.9 Class. Membership for the class is only $30/ 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.

SAMPLE

2019 Membership Applications
are now being accepted

Port Huron Yacht Club is hosting their annual One Design Regatta and has invited the class to participate. Racing on southern Lake Huron gives the opportunity to dock at either Port Huron Yacht Club in Michigan or Sarnia Yacht Club in Ontario, Canada. The regatta will feature a windward/leward race course with Port Huron Yacht Club's infamous entertainment after the race. At Port Huron Yacht Club there is docking, a crane to launch and trailer storage. There is also a ramp down the river that is best used by leaving the mast down until you pass under the bridges. There are numerous hotels in the area with a few Airbnb rentals available. Contact Tyson Connolly at BBY1291@gmail.com for any questions

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 Sec/Treas or the class president if you have any questions.

Paul Latour, Secretary-Treasurer

Results

You missed a good ol' time if you did not attend the 2018 edition of the Equalizer regatta. We were met with picture perfect sunny fall conditions with 14 boats sailing. This was a well traveled regatta with boats coming from Kentucky, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, and Maryland. Crews started arriving Thursday and ventured downtown Nashville for some good food and great music. As boats started to be put together and launched, some ventured out to Percy Priest Lake for a beautiful sail. Saturday was met with sunny skies and winds that started around 8kts and built throughout the afternoon to around 20kts. We were able to get in four races for the day. Saturday evening was the infamous Gumbo party at Paul Latour's house. There was plenty of food, drinks, a fire pit and of course great S2 7.9 camaraderie. Sunday started off sunny with a chill in the air with good winds. We were able to get 2 races off before the wind shut off. The final results were Navigator in First place, Rebel in Second place, and Scalded Dawg in Third place. This was the final race of the S2 7.9 Class Association season and now we move South for the St. Pete NOOD in february.

Congratulations to Navigator on Winning the

If you didn't attend this year's Class Championship, you missed one fantastic regatta. The Regatta started with perfect sailing conditions on Friday, partly cloudy skies and 10-14 kts of wind. After day one, Rebel was in first place with the next 5 boats within 3 points of each other. Saturday brought heavy air with winds around 20kts. It was a wild ride with boat speeds pushing 9kts downwind. After 2 races, the Race Committee called racing for the day as the wind and seas continued to build. On Saturday night the annual banquet was held at Ford Yacht and it was tasty! Many times, the comment "This is the best buffet I've ever had" was heard. Following the banquet there was a band that rocked the rest of the evening. There was even a sighting of a Relentless crewmember in a Pac Man suit on the dance floor. As the winds were even stronger on Sunday with gusts to 35, the Race Committee decided to call off racing for the day and end the regatta. All the traveling boats were out of the water and secured by 12:00pm when the awards started. Every boat received an award and a goody bag including the coveted 3D printed model of the S2 7.9. After 5 races and big winds, Fun Uncle was the winner and the 2018 Class Champion. Many thanks to Cary Diehl and Ford Yacht for putting on one of the best CCRs ever. Also, thanks to all those on the RC boats, especially those on the mark boats. Without all of these people, this regatta would not have happened. Join us in Racine, WI in 2019.
