Sailors & Parents,
We have the opportunity to go to the Rose Bowl regatta in Long Beach CA this year, so I am planning on taking a team of 4-6 sailors. The regatta is Jan 2-3, but we will fly out Friday the 1st and come back Monday the 4th. We will stay at a house down in Long Beach.
I have taken the team to this regatta a few times in the past. It is a big event that is very competitive. We will be racing against really good California teams. There is also a college event running simultaneously, and the colleges give a talk on Saturday night so it is a good time for the upperclassmen to learn about schools and talk to coaches.
The cost will likely be 400-600 per person.
When choosing who goes to events like this I decide based on four things:
Team Dedication: Practice and regatta attendance, fundraiser participation, boat loading, etc
Skill: Who would benefit the most from sailing in a competitive fleet?
Seniority: Are you a freshman or senior?
Responsibility: If I leave you in LA are you going to huddle in a corner and cry or deal with it. Don't worry, I haven't left anyone yet! :)
So please let me know if you would like to be considered. It's ok if you are from different schools. Unfortunately since this event is less than a month away I need to register and book flights ASAP. So please let me know if you would like to go by NOON TOMORROW.
Call or email if you need more details,
