Thanks Zac for posting the schedule and allowing some vital input. The SSS series is a low cost series, which is growing in popularity among E27 owners; with no date conflicts, why not support it?

Spinnaker Cup would be better choice for the an ocean race over Crewed Farallones as both these events require boats to meet NorCaLORC Equipment List which includes among other items “18 inch Lifelines” and it take time to get the boat ready.

Spinnaker Cup is the beginning of a 3-day weekend, which give everyone time to get the boat back and set up for ditch run the following weekend as opposed to only one day to get the boats back from Stockton, step the rig and set the boat for a series ocean race. Just too aggressive!

It would be great to get Spinnaker Cup back on the schedule, as MPYC has been very supported of the E27 fleet. Five years in a row MPYC formally offered to host the E27 Nationals in Monterey Bay as well as invitations to the prestigious Dolphin Cup Regatta originally created for the Santa Cruz 50 & 52 fleets. The E27 fleet never responded to MPYC invites so they gave up.

If owners are willing to make the journey to do Double Dam the fleet should recognized and support their effort and give them credit in the results. This also includes Trans -Tahoe and The High Sierra Regatta

Thanks for you hard work.

:: 4. Keep the total entry costs for the season around
:: $1000

:: 4. Support the YC that is hosting Nationals

:: 5. Don't overlap with regattas that pull our crews away
:: (RBBS, J70 Worlds, Express 37 Nationals, Moore 24
