Hello My Fellow Sailors,
Upcoming on Friday, June 15th will be held the "Down the River" Race which is sailed from Chestertown CC& YC (Chestertown Md) down the scenic Chester River as it twists and turns, to Langford Creek where RHYC (Rock Hall) is locate. This is a very low cost, low key, short "distance" race that is alot of fun and is perfect for any Junior Teams to compete in. There is very little .... extremely little powerboat traffic on the river and we have powerboats chaperoning the fleet the whole way.
Following on Sat/Sun June 16-17th at RHYC is the "Annual One-Design" Regatta. Many members of Div11 have attended this event in the past , and I hope this year too. This event uses a "Open" Class format for the "Multi's, but if we have enough boats pre-registered (ie: we need notice to do this ...) we can split out classes as requested/required if "class" is made (5 boats min). The "plan" is to use this event as a "training" regatta for Junior/Youth Teams as it is not a "Points" regatta. Camping as usual, pool as usual, LOTS of GOOD TIMES/CHEER as usual ....
Now for the BIG NEWS ...
Mr Joe Skinner, RHYC Commodore has offered the following .... any "Junior" team that is registered for the JO Festival/JR HCA-NA NAC's hosted by AYC will recieve a 50% discount on their registration fee ... (there's more ...) ... also, they will be allowed to leave their boats at RHYC for the intervening time period between the events at RHYC at !!!! NO CHARGE !!!!, and return to use the facility as "Guests of the Commodore" during this period.
( ... now I pay club dues and boat fees to recieve this privilage ... so ...)
This is FANTASTIC !!!!!!
Also, any boats being chartered/loaned for the JO's/HCA-NA NAC's can be left at RHYC and we'll arrange to tow/trailer them over to AYC/Annapolis SS on Thurs, July 5th ....
If you have any questions about this venue, please check our website, http://www.rockhallyachtclub.org

So please come to these events, support our Junior's and support RHYC in their efforts to support small sailboat racing.
