The Fleet is hosting a mid-week series season ending party, dockside after racing on Tuesday,  September 13.  Food is by the 7 Sandwich food truck.  The first round of sandwiches and all beverages are on the fleet.  Get a token from Mark or Bill for sandwiches and look forward to a great time!  Come and help us thank Troy and crew for a great job running races this year and also to give another welcome to new and returning boats including Jestre and Habanero.

Time to start planning on some great Fall regatta opportunities!

  1.  the totally doable one-day format Fall Lake Regatta on September 17,
  2. 2016 Western Regional Championship at Shilshole on October 15-16.  The WR is a great chance to “pick it up a notch” and get out there in a high level regatta.  The current rumor is that as many as 6 to 8 boats may be coming from east of the mountains, and we expect to get boats from Oregon and California.  All that, a good bet for solid fall winds, and a berth in the 2017 World Championship are up for grabs.
