Our first Division 9 Points Regatta of the year, Bare What You Dare, is just a month away. It will be held on the weekend of May 10-11 at the Keowee Sailing Club near Seneca, South Carolina. This regatta will be the first of three HCANA Points Regattas to be held in Division 9 this year. The three regattas will constitute the Division 9 Championship Points Series, and we will award trophies to the top three skippers after the last race of the series. We invite anyone with a H16 or H18 to come out and race for HCANA points. All other catamarans are welcome and may participate with their respective classes or in open classes. H16's and H18's will have their own start. If you live outside of the Division 9 area, we would love to have you come give us some more competition

These clubs are making an effort to support one-design Hobie racing, so let's make an effort to support their regattas! These three events represent our best opportunities to have big fleets in Division 9 this year. So come on out and join us!! Notify your buddies and help spread the word.
