WeÆre pleased to announce that the 2005 J/109 East Coast Championships will take place at Storm Trysail ClubÆs Block Island Race Week, from June 19-25, 2005. This is one of the premiere east coast sailing venues, and early indications from New England area fleet captains point towards a record J/109 fleet.
The J/109 Class will sail under Class Rules as posted at www.J/109.org. Over the winter, we expect that there will be some (non-sail related) modifications to the rules following a survey of J/109 fleets and the convening of the first J/109 Executive Committee meeting. Any changes will be posted promptly on the class site.
As the event nears, we will be coordinating J/109 activities during the week, including a pre-event seminar as well as a mid-week social. To stay current with the latest regatta information, please visit the event website http://blockislandraceweek.com/
The key things to jump on early are docking, housing and ferry reservations û the contacts for which will be posted on the event site. Please feel free to contact Class Secretary, Kendra Muenter at Kendra@jboats.com if you need any help in your planning. Should be a great time!
