MMadge,

Absolutely,

The fastest way to learn what make these boats go is to come and join the crowd.  You’ll find we like to talk about what is working and why and we are always talking about how to build the fleet.  Just keep an eye on this board and also call the western lakes hotline for regatta/ice updates.  608-204-9876 ext 5.  This is updated regularly by the regional commodore, Ken Smith…

Regards

Most of us just load-up and wait to hear which direction to point the car.  Typically, the hotel info will be posted and some reduced rate negotiated by the locals or regatta chair.  Then we all show up from different directions and have a great weekend...

Once you get over the idea of needing to know exactly where you are headed days in advance, it's just another great roadtrip.

Yes that will take some getting use to.We usually plan our summer regattas 6mths in advance.Having someone to share the drive with would also be a huge plus.I am good for about 7hrs on my own.Keeping my fingers crossed it in Minnisota
