Count me in as the first to commit with U20 #25 fore.  I'll make every attempt to sail but must admit watching the fleet last year in Kansas was a lot of fun.

Quick update on the North Americans.  We will soon be able to announce a title sponsor that is going to help make this a 1st class regatta.  We have a wonderful facility, race management team, and 12-15 boats committed.  We are looking to get 20+ boats on the line.  If you are at all on the fence you should start making plans.  The few boats that were available for loan have been spoken for so plan to tow your boat out. 

Please reach out if you need help with anything.

Hey Tim

Can we use Yachtscoring instead of regatta network for this event? It is so much easier to use and worth the extra few $$ for each boat. Also makes finding events easier online for people to find that are not there.

just asking.
See you there!

I know Tac wanted the other regatta management site, but LNYC uses Regatta Network...

Im in. Ill be bringing Running With Scissors (Steve Roses boat) down from Duluth. Rumor has it You Sassy B! will also be making the trip up from Columbia.

Two crew that sailed with Steve last bayfield race week really want to come participate, but Sassy and Scissors are already fully crewed. Are there any boats in the area (or anywhere between Minnesota and North Carolina) that are available for charter? We can pick up along the way if necessary.

Also, obligatory first post comment: Hi all, my name is Mike. I borrowed Scissors from Steve Rose for two years before he passed away. He made a huge impression on me, and the U20 has an incredibly special place in my heart. I can never repay Steve, but Im doing my best to honor his memory by sailing as much as possible, encouraging others as much as possible, and perfecting my goombay smash recipe.  Im really looking forward to coming down to race with the community down south.

Wanted to let folks know that we have two other opportunities to sail on Lake Norman. One is in a couple weeks, we have our annual Labor Day regatta. This will give you a chance to see the conditions on the lake prior to NAs. You can register from the front page of the Lake Norman Yacht Club website. You can also leave your boat there until NAs.

The second opportunity is Nov 10-11. This is the annual Carolina Keelboat One-Design regatta.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

BJ and Emily went over and checked it out. All seems fine.  Nothing to report so far.

Glad to hear yall made it through.
It appears one of the crew is going to have to drop out. Does anyone know someone who might be interested in crewing?

Fair warning we will closer to the back of the pack than the front
Cheers,
Bryan Colby
