After a great Luau (complete with roast pig, live music and boche ball tourny), we are ready to conduct two more regattas in September at CJ Strike. As usual, Set up Friday Night or Saturday Morning at the Air Force Ramp/North Idaho Power Camp Ground. Skippers meeting at 11, with racing at 12. There will be a little different setup for the 13th/14th, in that we will try a long distance event (and I think I heard something about a battle of the sexes race thrown in at some point as well).
Come on out and enjoy the fun, comradery and the ever famous pot luck.
Idaho Invasive Species Announcement
In Idaho we are lucky to have waters that are relatively free from invasive species (there are some, but compared to some other states, our waters are still pristine). Dick Armstrong has forwarded this important update about the Idaho Invasive Species program. Please take the time to reveiw the information in this link and understand the implications.
Check out our links on the left hand side of this page.Race results are posted for all regattas to date and great photos of all season events are featured in the photo gallery. We also have some interesting videos for your enjoyment.

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!
