*** Star Regatta ***
Bob Schluger (HYMC) will be hosting a Star regatta at the Cove in Weathersfield on Saturday July 31st. Starting time is 9:45. All are encouraged to come out and support this event and have a great day of racing!
All HMYC Members,
Today (6-17-21) was a gorgeous race day at Hop Brook. It was sunny and 75 degrees and the wind was 5-7 out of the NW which is right down the center of the course. It doesn’t get any better at Hop Brook Lake!
However, Kenichi and I were the only ones there sailing Stars and no one came for the DragonFlite95!!!!
Therefore, going forward due to lack of participation, ***ALL THURSDAY RACING IS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ****
It saddens me deeply to have to do this but there is obviously no longer interest in racing in our club. Weekend racing will continue but will be subject to the same fate if no one shows up. Remember folks that this is YOUR club and the fate of it is in YOUR hands.
**Also, just a reminder that this weekend is Father’s Day and racing is on Saturday not Sunday for US1M and Soling **
