I couldn't agree with you more Tom. The problem is the majority of the SF fleet do not want to trailer their boats. Most people won't even do the ditch run, which is only 67 miles East, because of the trailering aspect. Pretty hard to talk them into trailering all the way to Detroit.

I would be up for it in 2009 or later.

:: shows interest in the local fleet by Class authority,
:: which should strengthen the local fleets. Second, it

:: Also it helps the smaller fleets to get excited and
:: ramped up for more sailing, this a more active
:: Class..... Just a thought.....
:: I would certainly take my boat back east. Anyone want to
