We’re just one week away from the start of our spring racing season! Join us on April 6 for the start of our spring series and for a post-race chili-fest provided by PRSA. We’ll kick off the season on April 6 with our regular racing program: 10:00 am skipper’s meeting by the cranes, 11:25 first warning signal on the upper course. The Sailing Instructions for PRSA Sunday Series racing can be found on the PRSA Website at http://potomacriversailing.org/nors-sis/
Make sure to stick around for the post-race festivities on April 6 as well. PRSA will provide chili (both meat and vegetarian variants), side dishes, and beverages. No need to bring anything for this first week–just come hungry and enjoy some food, drink, and good cheer after the racing!
As you get organized for the start of racing, please remember to pay your dues (PRSA, Fleet 50, and ILCA) and sign up for Race Committee duty if you haven’t already done so. Timely dues payments are essential for the maintenance of our equipment, and we all need to take our turn on RC so that we all can also have fun racing on the water. You can find all the relevant forms and links on our PRSA Dues & RC Duty webpage (http://potomacriversailing.org/dues-rc-duty/) and on the Fleet 50 Membership page (http://lightningfleet50.org/?page_id=17)
Finally, PRSA has organized a series of training events for the spring. Please mark the following dates on your calendar. We will send additional information along as each training event approaches.
- April 5: Skiff Management Training hosted by Nabeel Alsalam (time TBA, at WSM)
- May 15: Racing Rules Seminar hosted by Jeff Neurater and Aaron Boesenecker (7-9 pm, Charleston Room inside of Indigo Landing restaurant)
- Date TBA: Local Knowledge Seminar hosted by Barney Harris
I look forward to seeing everybody out on the water soon!
