Two out of three

We had a beautiful plate of ice and a game bunch of racers. Drawing from all the New England states. We even had some New Jerseys. But we had absolutely no wind. Meatloaf might try to convince you that two out of three aint bad but don’t believe him.

We will try again.

We did have a great round of scratch racing late in the afternoon on Saturday. I probably should have called the regatta on for Saturday but what are you going to do

There is apparently some confusion about insurance. You need to have $300,000 worth of liability insurance coverage in order to race. Most homeowners or renters policies have an option for this. You need to bring proof of this coverage with you when you come to race. Those be the rules.

I apologize for the tardiness of this wrap up report, I am currently working on my time generator to make sure I have more time per day than everyone else. I am currently still working on the same 24 hours as everyone else but I have had some promising results.

Next week we will en devour to race the New England Championships. So stay tuned. Keeps those runners sharp and send in your ice reports.

    I just checked with my insurance agent and he told me that racing of anything is not a covered activity with any homeowner’s add on or umbrella insurance. Today the liability climate is so bad that I beleive this rule requiring liability insurance was written many years ago and should no longer apply. The insurance is essentialy unobtainable by the average person. If you think your insurance covers you and an accident happens during a race I think you will find you are NOT covered! We should drop this requirement.
    If you are 100% sure your company allows racing then please post the company name.
