Congrats - and Kudos on a well done photo! Truly captures the spirit of the sport/hobby and class. This should be a cover photo for the AMYA magazine when they feature the Soiling 50 class. Only thought is to see the photo, one might not know it is a 1 Meter or a 50 inch size.

Who cares - it' a great photo.

Thanks for the nice words!

I have some article photos and a cover shot (hopefully) in an upcoming AMYA issue featuring the Wheeler class.

CANCELLED

Unfortunately this Regatta has been cancelled due to lack of interest/not enough entries.

We are working on getting it rescheduled at a better time.

Thank you to those that did register.

Sorry to hear this as well.
I was still trying to see if I could figure out a way to participate in the Soling 50s, but I suspect one more boat would not have made a difference. It was not looking like I was going to be able to make it.
I knew as soon as it was announced that I would not be able to sail in the Marblehead National's. I would certainly like to, but already had commitments for that weekend. I offered my boat to two friends to sail, but one had commitments as well. The other was a bit of a logistic issue as we live five hundred miles apart.
Hopefully, both of these events will regroup and try again.

We are already working on a new date.

In the meantime, we are going ahead with a Soling-50 Regatta on the same dates, but it will no longer be a NCR.

How many sailors will show up for a club or regional regatta as opposed to a National regatta ?

We already have 5 registered and several more maybes. We're hoping to have at least 10-12 if we can get some more local and regional boat owners to sign up.

It looks like July is a busy month for many with traveling, grandkids etc. We typically get better participation with our Spring and Winter regattas.
