The 2011 regatta schedule for AYC is being firmed up and there are still a few details to be worked out. AYC hosts 3 major regattas and a few small ones, each of these events needs an event chairperson or persons. This individual does not need to be a person that races regularly or even races at all. The chair arranges things like catering, clean up, trophies, t-shirts, sponsorship, moorage, on the water commitee, registration and entertainment. Each of the regattas allows you to make it as special as you want it to be. These regattas bring in a boatload of revenue and many of our memebers have done it before and are eager to help.
Here is the plan so far:
February 26th Girts Rekevics Memorial Foulweather Race destination TBD chair needed
April 26th Tulip Regatta chair Walt Meagher
June 11th Windermere Regatta chairperson or persons needed
June 18th Get Out the Boat Girls chair needed (probably easy to get male volunteers)
August 26th Northern Century chair Kevin Welch
October 15th Year End Awards Regatta chair needed
2011 promises to be the best year of sailing ever for AYC. Windermere is the fleet championship for SC-27's and Moore 24's, Northern Century's goal is to go from 37 to over 50 boats, and we hope to break last years record of 42 race packets sold. Please contact Race Chairman Andy Schwenk to sign up now!
