Tulip Regatta about to bloom
April 9th &10th marks a sure sign spring is here. The AYC Tulip Regatta! This year Walt meagher and Vic Childs have been working overtime to assure success. Skippers meeting Friday night, famously good eats (Thomas Childs) and a great band Saturday, and free chilidogs while we laud the winners on Sunday. Oh yes and sailing three one design fleets: for the first time ever F-18 catamarans, venerable SJ-24's and those colorful SC-27's. PHRF classes will be split into 3 divs. If you have never competed in a weekend regatta or if you never miss one sign up now on-line. If you have already purchased your race packet you are also eligble for a $20.00(us) discount. New flags, reconditioned inflatable marks, terrific new chase boat, guaranteed wind, great door prizes, beer sponsor, raffles, colorful repartee, smiling bartenders, 75% discounted moorage, and the usual hijinks and capers. Go online sign up now! This REALLY helps regatta planners figure out meals, t-shirts, class breaks, on water finish sheets, bar supplies, and registration.
