I appreciate all the responses from Iowa 20 sailors, and rather than hijack one of the existing topics, Iâ€™m going to start a new one to coordinate 20 sailing in Iowa. Iâ€™m awaiting activation of my membership on the Division 7 forum, which may be a more appropriate place for this, but in the meantime I figured Iâ€™d start a topic to coordinate sailing in case anyone else is interested in finding crew for cruising or racing, or getting a few 20s together for fun training and play.
Iâ€™m always looking for crew as my wifeâ€™s no entirely comfortable leaving our daughter with someone for a day on the water. There are plenty of folks at work excited to go out, and I love exposing new people to Hobie sailing, but teaching someone new each weekend does get a bit old.
So, feel free to use this post to coordinate timing of 20 sailing around Iowaâ€¦ and Minnesota for that matter. Iâ€™m from the Twin Cities so Iâ€™m up there quite frequently. 15mpg with the cat behind me makes for a spendy trip, but dpending on the event itâ€™s definitely not out of the question, and this post isnâ€™t just for me.
Anyway, if thereâ€™s any wind between 5 and 25 this weekend Iâ€™ll be headed to the water. Probably Red Rock or Rathbun unless things get ugly with damn releases. Let me know if youâ€™re interested in heading out.
