New England Champs Update
The primary site for the 2014 New England Champs (Pushaw Lake near Bangor, ME) was scouted today and found to still have cracks and hazards. Cold temps tonight and tomorrow may lock it up but we can only call a regatta “on” tentatively at this point-
So we are still hoping to get a regatta in on Wednesday but only if we get some good news tomorrow-
IN THE EVENT that we do get race-able ice on Pushaw the launch site will be announced here, the first start will be at 11AM, scoring will be done using “The Maine System” unless someone wants to volunteer, and three or more boats of any class will get their own start. NIA rules apply, waivers must be signed and bring proof of insurance as usual. Come one come all, novice to expert- rookies and old boats welcome- Will have a prize for the top “Classic”….
We have also been hearing some good news from our eyes in the skies about the northern end of Lake Champlain…. More on this story as it develops! Could be some good sailing in the first days of the new year.
Stay tuned to this site for details- fingers crossed!
