The H Class Nationals are rapidly approaching. We have 29 boats registered for senior racing and 4 for junior racing! I am expecting more will sign up.

Here are a few items to remember:

    •Racers who are sailing from Buzzards or Beverly Yacht Clubs should call ahead on VHF channel 9 as they near Quissett Harbor, to contact Mike Garfield or Chuck First. If you have trouble reaching them on VHF 9 call them on their cell phones: Mike’s number is 609-370-0163, and Chuck’s is 617-462-7658. We will have power boats standing by outside the harbor to escort you to your moorings, which will be marked with balloons.
    •Junior Racers: Please remember to have a parent or legal guardian sign off on a waiver form prior to racing: go to Regatta Network to download a form. We look forward to seeing you at the cookout on Friday night, which is in your honor.
    •Parking: We will have QYC volunteers showing you where to park your cars. Those new to the area can google 71 Quissett Harbor Road to find the yacht club.
    •Food/drink: Lunches will be in double bagged ZIPLOCS. Those of you who want to keep food cold may want to bring along insulated bags and cold packs.
    •Friday night cookout, and Saturday night dinner: Please remember to sign up by July 22nd. It should be a lot of fun and we look forward to seeing many friends there.
    •Mementos and trophies: I know many of you will cross the finish line on Sunday and head directly for home. I will deliver your trophies or mementos to you during the following week.

Looking forward to a great time!
