May 18-19 Lake Lowell Regatta - Swan Song?????
Another successful SISA regatta is in the books. With good winds on Saturday and great winds on Sunday, 5 races were put in the books. Sundays winds were steady from 12 to 16 knots most of the day, with one or two gusts to 18 (which necessitated the abandonment of the first race for a boat righting exercise). Score sheet is now posted under the race results link.
The Deer Flat CCP comment period has ended. Thank's to all who registered their comments in favor of Sailing Regattas. If we are allowed to continue, it is due to your hard work and efforts.
New member Michael Guryan has done a little editing to our membership application form to be a fillable document. Click the link above to try it out. With a fillable document, this means that when opened with Adobe acrobat reader, you can click in a field and directly type in your information. Once completed it can be saved and/or printed. This is cool as it will solve some "penmanship issues" that the membership chairman has had to deal with. If you haven't submitted your 2013 registration yet, give it a try!!!
KNOW THE RULES!
Do you know who has room at the mark? Do you know the right of way rules? SISA subscribes to US Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing 2009-2012 for all events. The Racing Rules of Sailing are published by the International Sailing Federation, the international authority for the sport. One of the the most important functions of rules is safety as well as promoting good sportsmanship. If you have questions about sailing conduct on the water or just want to test your knowledge, we have a fun link for you. The link below has three levels of difficulty. In each one you are asked to respond to a particular situation on the water. After you answer, you are given an explanation of the correct response along with the applicable rule. Give it a try!
