Please review the attached document detailing changes to the International J/70 Class Rules for 2016. These changes took effect at the beginning of February. The summary document can be accessed by clicking HERE.
I hope that everyone is as excited as I am for the upcoming racing season. As it stands now we have fully 76 racing days with J/70 fleet starts right in Annapolis on tap in 2016! You can link to the detailed schedule here [J70_2016_Schedule_Detail] or find the summary at: http://j70fleetone.com/2016-schedule/.
A few other items of note to discuss:
We will be holding an Annual Fleet Meeting on Sunday April 3rd at 1pm. Tentative location is the SSA Clubhouse. There is much to discuss and I hope as many people as possible will be able to attend.
The NOOD is fast approaching and our goal is to get 60 boats on the line this year. If you plan to sail please register ASAP at: http://yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=1590 . Let all of the out of town boats know that this is going to be a serious event and that they can plan to come down with confidence!
If you are planning on coming from out of town and you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly [firstname.lastname@example.org].
Extended Thursday Night Racing
While there are still some items left to work out, per our request, Jworld has graciously offered to host an extended Thursday Night Racing season in the month of September. This would consist of 3 to 4 additional weeks added on the traditional TNR season, which ends at the end of August.
2015/16 Results have been added to the results page!!!
If anyone has any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me directly. I am looking forward to another exciting and rewarding season of J/70 racing. Hopefully everyone else is as well!
