A number of them show up on an irregular basis, usually for a major Club regatta...

Upcoming Regattas & Power Events for February

While we hammer out the details of the upcoming season, here's what's coming in February. (January, we take the month off )

February 9 – Petaluma Hobby Expo 2013 (Saturday)

The International Plastic Modeler's Society of Santa Rosa will be putting on its annual Hobby Expo at the Petaluma Community Center on Saturday, February 9th and a number of SFMYC members are planning to again host a table at this growing event which Vice Commodore Robert Heacock says has a gate of about eight thousand visitors. To accommodate what appears to be a large Club contingent who plans to show the bergie (and their models) at this event, the monthly meetings are delayed one week until 16 February.

For more details contact Vice Commodore Robert Heacock via the SFMYC website and check out the Hobby Expo’s website:

February 16 – Frostbite Regatta (Saturday)

The Frostbite regatta will be held Saturday, 16 February in the Clubhouse after the general meeting starting about 12:30hrs.

The Frostbite, a traditional Club, ‘pre-season’ is a static display event held in the Clubhouse to give members an opportunity to show off what they have been up to over the off-season. Everything is welcome: a new model, the refurbishment of a classic or whatever thing nautical you would like to share with your fellow members. Table space is available but limited so if you supply your own table, it will be appreciated.

Its a great day Right Now. JT, your messages were heard. 13 sailboats came on your call for action. One of those boats even being a freesailor. This is a perfect day with good winds to make for good racing.
