Hey Sailors, or potiential new Sailors,

 2014 Schedule Is Now Posted 

Sailors,

The board has set the schedule for 2014.  Check it out under our schedule link to the left.  There are a lot of events for everybody to participate in.  We also need race committees, so pick your date and contact John Gabiola to let him know which Regatta you would like to run (This is an important function that all members need to participate in.  Please volunteer early.)

 2014 Idaho Department of Recreation Passes and Lake Cascade Camping 

As a reminder, day passes to the Lucky Peak, Lake Cascade and McCall events cost $5.00 per day.  Season passes are available for $10 with your car registration which are good for 2014 unlimited use at all of Idaho's 30 parks and a $5 camping discount per night.

As you know, Hobie Beach is now a fee camping area and in many ways has become a “kinder gentler place”.  It’s certainly less crowded.  SISA has had good luck sharing camper and tent space in single sites w/impromptu pot luck breakfasts before sailing.  Typically member’s beach wheels are available for cat transport. 

Sites are available for $23 - $27 per night all with water and some with electricity.  They will accommodate up to 8 tents.   Double sites are $35.  (Again there is a $5 discount with a pass.) You can reserve 9 months in advance.

http://idahostateparks.reserveamerica.com/campgroundMap.do?selectedSiteRb=36936&contractCode=ID&parkId=313037

Our Cascade events this year are 6/21-22, 7/12-13, 7/26-27 & 8/9-10.  Suggest reserving early especially for the Cascade Cup.  The even number sites are beach frontage.

 

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 2013-2016 for all events. The Racing Rules of Sailing are published by the International Sailing Federation, the international authority for the sport (http://www.sailing.org/rrs) . 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!
