The Fleet 42 Web Site has been updated for 2014. The 2014 schedule has all of the Family Fun Weekends, Racing Weekends, and Combined Racing Weekends included. Be sure to look at the schedule and start making your plans for some sailing.
The 2014 Rocky Point Challenge is going to be a very special weekend. This is our 10th Annual Rocky Point Challenge and a fun time is going to be had by all. There will be Rocky Point Challenge Regatta T-Shirts included in your entry as well as a few surprises in this years GOODY BAGS. Please plan on attending this regatta! The warm water and winds are very special and no wetsuits or drysuits are required! Shorts, t-shirts, sailing gear, and your boat is all you need. Please go to the Rocky Point Challenge page and get your Playa Bonita Reservation Forms into them as soon as possible. Last year, the R.V. park was FULL, not an extra space to be had! And while you are filling out that form, go to the Rocky Point Challenge Registration Page and you can enter the regatta on line! Also pay for your entry there as well. I have set everything up so entries can be done on line. Extremely secure!!! We will be sailing with the Hobie fleets as they do their points regatta, the Pinata Regatta. We have been sharing the water for a few years now and we have a great time with each other. It sure is a lot of fun seeing so many boats on the beach then in the water as we all do what we came to do….sail. It is so much fun seeing old friends and making new ones.
Speaking of the Hobie Fleets, Fleet 42 wants to congradulate Tony Krauss, the new Hobie Fleet 514 Commodore. Tony and his wife Lani are long time friends of Fleet 42. We look forward to working with and sailing with Tony and the whole gang of Hobie Fleet 514 this year! Congratulations and a job well done also goes out to Barb Perlmutter, Hobie Fleet 514 past commodore. Now Barb can relax and take it easy. WHEW and WAHOO Barb!
Also, Bill Feil is the Commodore for Hobie Fleet 66. Bill has been sailing Hobies forever, and comes out to sail with us on occasion. We look forward to working with and sailing with Bill and the whole gang of Hobie Fleet 66 this year as well!
Sailfest this year will again be at Roosevelt Lake. Shoreline camping with your boat right next to the water ready for a days worth of sailing. If the winds are right for it, a “race” to the dam and back may be in order. Please bring all your water toys, land toys, games and your best sailing lies for the campfire Saturday night. Also on Saturday night, the Fleet 66 Chili Cookoff is going to happen. Bring your best “chili and fixins” and awards will be handed out for the best traditional, non-traditional, and hottest chilis we can create. Fleet 42 will be providing all the stuff to eat with, plates, bowls, forks, knifes, spoons, napkins, cups, and of course…TUMS for those of you with weak tummys. I will be getting to Roosevelt Lake on Friday, as soon as I can. If you are getting there before me, please spread out so we can get everyone as close to the shore line as possible.
The Cinco De Mayo Regatta is happening in May this year in Rocky Point. This is a GREAT regatta to attend every year. I really missed not going to this regatta last year but I am going this year and am already look towards it.
I am very excited about sailing this year. Fleet 42 is growing and getting better every year. I look forward to seeing everyone, sooner than later, and can’t wait to sail.
