One piece of information that will be important, is that the club has gone โ€œcashlessโ€ this year. No cash entries will be accepted.

Other news:, the Sail Small Boat Day at the Richmond YC was received well by interested people relatively new to sailing as well as some some experienced sailors trying different boats for the first time. www.richmondyc.org/Calendar/Event/13823~1393383~1
In particular, we had Jon Arndt (Editor of Lat38) steering a boat with me (Lyn Hines), and Kim Desenburg (boat builder, Rabbit sailor) sailing with Bill Worden. It quickly became an upwind/downwind race but it was fun. Chris Nash took out one boat and some 110 sailors took a spin as well.

SoCal Mercury fleet is rallying to be present for the Cinco de Mayo regatta... hope we can make it an event!

2019 Perry Cup #1 (Monterey Invitational)

The November Monterey Perry Cup is the first of a four weekend series, held at the Monterey Peninsula YC. It started with a strong turnout of 13 boats. Monterey is a venue where you thread your way through seals possibly whales and Dive boats are obstructions. What was exciting was to see such a mix of geographical, crew make ups and new faces. Crews came from Fresno, Santa Cruz, San Francisco Bay Area and Monterey.

2019 Fall One Design Regatta

whelan

The Fall Regatta in San Pedro last weekend was lucky to get a friendly turnout, and some great sailing conditions on the Saturday. Straightforward 2x around with the luxury of leeward gates made sailing fun without the traffic jams and elevated pulses.

This past Saturday the first Annual Fall Mercury Regatta  was kicked off at the Richmond Yacht Club.

Nine  boats started in a 12+ knot gusting breeze which was kicked up by a passing front. Before and after Saturday, much calmer conditions... "you should have been here last week"  

None the less, despite the rowdy conditions, we had a big turnout of new faces.

From the Prez, August 2019...

Hello all Mercury Class Members!

Just a quick update from your President, I know its been a while, but it has been a busy summer.
