Bellingham Regatta Details

This weekend we are hosting our own regatta.  This is a team race regatta which is the back up qualifier for team race districts.  This regatta is only open to one varsity team per school.  Unfortunately the Bellingham and Squalicum teams did not have enough to fill a team this weekend so we will only have one Sehome team.  That team will be Lera, Cedric, Emma, Natalie S, Mallory, Peyton with alternates Alejandro, Casey, and Leila.

If some of you want to come down and watch or help with race committee you are welcome to.

For those sailing and helping please arrive down at 8:30 to start unloading and rigging our boats.

Entry fee is $10, please bring to registration Saturday morning and Judy Powell who is taking care of registration will collect your money.  

We are launching boats at Squalicum Marina and then sailing them over to Zuanich Park.  Registration and competitors meeting will be at Zuanich Park.

Regatta Help and other Sailing Announcements

1. We are hosting a regatta in less than two weeks down on the bay. April 21-22.  I could use helpers for food, registration, and race committee.  Please let me know if you can help. 

2.  For the regatta we will need to house teams that come to our regatta.  Some will need housing Friday night, but most will only need housing Saturday.  All they need is a big floor to crash on.  You do not need to provide them anything other than the floor space.  Please let me know if you can offer up your home to a team.

3. Team yearbook pictures will be this Thursday at practice.  I will bring pinnies, but bring any other team gear you have and comb your hair.
