Weekend Regatta Info-
OK Folks- The weather is going to make things interesting but you never know, we may just get lucky-

So the current plan is to scratch race Saturday, do the New England Champs on Sunday, and try to get the President’s Day Regatta done on Monday.

Winnipesaukee will be the place, launching out of Ellacoya State Park, just off Lake Shore Rd in Gilford, NH.

As ever, have an intimate knowledge of the Ice Yacht Racing Rules and be aware of the differences between them and regular soft water right of way rules. Click here for all: Rules & Safety – DN North America (idniyra.org)

Three or more boats of any class will have their own start, and a Vintage/Classic Award will be presented to the skipper with the best result in the most dated DN. The regatta chairman and a hand-picked secret cabal will decide the winner on the day, based on criteria far too esoteric to go into here…. So if you have an older DN don’t hesitate to come to the regatta!

All racers will also have to show proof of $300,000 liability insurance (usually tacked on to one’s homeowner’s policy).

If anyone wants to volunteer to help run races or keep score let me know at 401 258 6230. We can use all the help we can get…

It sounds like there is plenty of room on the lake so whether you want to race or cruise load up and come on out!

Lodging will be an issue due to the long weekend and February break from school so start looking now- Apologies for not being able to get a hotel with a group rate or anything- That said there will be rooms in the area somewhere….

Stay tuned to the NEIYA site for details and Think Ice- And don’t leave your slush/angle runners at home, you might need them….

I am probably too late to stop you, but 1 3/4 inches deflection under your weight is the recommended standard deflection for a plank.  Why do you want to make it stiffer?  I may make your DN harder to sail, although some do like a twitchy boat.

It will probably stiffen it 3 or 4 pounds per inch.
