East Coast Championship
We kicked off the planning for this year’s combined J/24 & J/22 East Coast Championship with a meeting last Tues. Mark Rivera and Jason Goscha are the respective J/24 and J/22 regatta chairs. If you are planning to sail the ECCs, please let me know-it will help with our planning over the next few months. If you are not planning to sail, we would still like to have Fleet 8 members participate and support our big regatta! Want to volunteer to help plan or assist during the regatta? Or, maybe just join us at the beer truck? Let us know! This is our annual fleet event and we want to make this fun for everyone.
Let’s hope for breeze tomorrow evening!
