The calendar has been updated for 2009 and lists several new events, distance races, and old favorites like Block Island Race Week. We will have our first one design start at the Annapolis NOOD in April. Bill Sweetser, Captain of the Chesapeake’s Fleet 4, requested that this become a championship event so we have designated it the Mid-Atlantic Championship. He also suggested that we initiate a multi-event championship so the combined results of the 2009 Annapolis and Larchmont NOOD Regattas will be used to award the first East Coast Regatta Circuit Trophy. Fleet 4 has generously offered to fund a J/109 half-hull as a perpetual and the Class will pay for annual trophies.
For those of you who can’t make the Annapolis NOOD, the Fleet 10 season kicks off at American Yacht Club’s Spring Series. This is typically a fun event with varying conditions and close racing. If you can get your boat in the water by the third week of April, please come join us.

See you on the water, very soon!
