The T37 model sloop Regional Championships will get underway Saturday morning, April 22 at 10:00 a.m. Racing starts at 11:00, hosted by the Pacific Northwest Model Yacht Club.. The one day event will be held at Sail Sand Point, Magnuson Park on Lake Washington. The Notice of Race and registration form are included with this announcement.
Sail Sand Point is a very active community sailing center offering dinghy rentals, lessons and racing programs. The venue has been “discovered” as a very suitable site for model sailing. Victoria, Dragon Force 95 and IOM classes regularly use the site. Also, Magnuson Café and Brewery is just steps away for postrace celebrations.
For this T37 event, be advised that boats will be launched from the beach. Also, this will be an open air event with little overhead shelter so come prepared with rain gear in case the sun doesn’t shine! I also suggest bringing a folding chair as seating spaces are limited.
A picnic lunch, included in your racing fee, will be available during a noon break.
Driving directions are best obtained for Sail Sand Point on Google Maps. The address is 7861 62nd Ave NE, Seattle, 98115. Once you are through the main parkgate, reaching the sailing area requires attention to signs. SSP is in the Northwest corner of the park.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 22nd for some very fun, competitive T37 sailing and spirited conversation!
