I just talked to my wife. I might be able to come up. Do many other spouses tag along?

Yeah, that too.

Do wives that tag along have other wives to hang out with and talk with, etc?

Kmot,

Are you going to build a tug for the event?

Yes....tables get set up and folks sort of stroll around. Usually one person stays by the "goods" to keep the locals from fingering the models to much. Your table neighbor can always be asked to stand watch during lunch etc...
If she likes to see different styles and skill levels with occasional talk...generally based around boat/model stuff then she'll be happy. Occasionally good conversation not based on model/boats stuff can be found, but its always a roll of the dice. She can always bring a book and a camera for the slow moments.

Can you bring other types of ships to sail around? Like a japanese battleship perhaps?

That is standard "gear" for my wife whenever she accompanies me anywhere.

Thanks Boatfox.

No. I was just thinking of going up to spectate and hang out and meet some of my internet friends. If the water is open for other types of boats I will certainly bring something.

The normal event generally runs from 9Am-1 or 2PM. At that time the sailors are trying to get on the water and using up the frequency flags. I would guess if you came and sailed before 9AM it would be fine...after that they do allow free running during the contest, but don't really like it. Also if the freq. was needed for a contestant they would ask for it ASAP......better to come to their other events for the free sailing. That or any Sunday you like before 12 noon.

Or use Spektrum.

Q: What frequency are you on?
A: Not the one you are on!
