It is hard to believe that we are already two weeks into the fall season. Please note: we have 2 regattas coming up at the end of September for back-to-back weekends. Attached is the registration information, please register if you are planning to attend.
Want to go but need a little help? Crew: If you would like to attend but are not sailing on a boat or Skippers: still looking crew for more information, please let me know and I will do whatever I can to help you get involved!
Frigid Digit, SSA Annapolis, September 28-29 (DEADLINE EXTENDED until Sept 23rd)
Message from Joe Friebele Regatta Chair: Dear Lightning Sailors, You’ve come to the Frigid Digit before, so you know what a great regatta it is with excellent fall sailing on the Chesapeake and a great party. To entertain and educate us, we will have drone footage playing before and during dinner so that we can re-live our moments on the water, both good and bad!
Due to scheduling conflicts at Severn Sailing Association, the date has moved up from the middle of October to the last weekend in September–only 2 weeks away! This is good news since we can avoid the extreme weather that we typically have on one day of the regatta, and we’re looking forward to 2 good days of racing. I want to personally invite you to come to this year’s Frigid Digit. If there is anything that I or the members of Fleet 329 can do to help you come, please let me know. I’ve attached the NOR, and the registration link is Frigid Digit 2019 Registration. Also, please add your name to ILCA Who’s Coming Website.
