Doc Fellows regatta update

I spent the day sailing tomorrow’s regatta venue and there is plenty of good ice. Today’s snow event left about an inch of fluffy light snow on top of a good 4" of very nice ice. It was starting to drift up by the end of the day but tomorrow promises to be a very nice day with sun and 10 to 12 knots of breeze more than enough to power through.

We could use some volunteers to help keep score and drop flags. We can promise large amounts of praise, gratitude and a front row seat to the action for those who help out. Always a good time.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the racing. DNs of all levels are enociursgebto joinnin and we are more than happy to start any class ot three or more boats. All we ask is that you are members of the NEIYA.

One potential issue is parking at the Leavitts beach launch site. There is minimal plowed parking space on the beach but there is a good sized plowed parking lot on your left before you enter the beach parking lot. So please move your car to the upper lot after unloading.

There are miles of ice to explore and race on but there are several hazards to be aware of so make sure to debrief with someone who knows what’s up before heading out. Be safe. See you tomorrow.
