How many of those attending are interested in a ODR start?  Once I enter, it looks like we have 5 U20s (although I think Don's preference is the Distance division with his PHRF sails), so we would have 4 in ODR mode?  We would need one more to have a ODR fleet if we want one.

Tim, I had planned to do the distance race but if there is a chance of a OD fleet, I'll change to the W/L course. We are the largest fleet to date.

As we usually do OD at this regatta I will come prepared to do OD if the fleet decides to do so.  For several years now i've thought the distance race would be fun, but willing to do either.

We have five boats.  I vote ODR, but will be happy with whatever people decide.  I entered ATB.

Tim, I am fine with either choice. The distance race runs around government bouys and has one race per day. The W/L course will have multiple daily starts.
