See you in the spring for the Sock Burning in late March, and racing resuming on Thursday evenings in mid-April. Watch for e-mails and more posts about that later in the winter.
Fall races will start on October 8th. Meet at 1:00 at the Tidewater flagpole if you’d like to help set the course. There will be a warning signal at 1:55 for a single start between the flagpole and Z at 2:00. Record your finish time and send it to David after the race for scoring. These races are a good time to get some late season practice, experience for new boats and crews, and just have some fun on the water before winter.
The annual awards banquet and dinner is also coming up in early November. Watch for more e-mails about that. We hope to see you there.
Thank you to everyone who helped coordinate the event, and all of the racers!

The Summer Series starts with Race 1 on July 13th.
Two special events will occur during the Summer Series – First we’ll have a Social on August 3rd. Then on August 10th we’ll have the return of the Havre de Grace Youth Sailing Gumbo Cookoff. Prepare to bring your gumbo for a chance to be named best in the club, or just come to sample the contributions. The event is operated by Havre de Grace Youth Sailing, and all proceeds go toward continuing to operate their program.
The season will conclude on September 14th, and be followed by the annual Bob McVey Memorial Race on the 15th.
Provisional season results are now posted at https://www.regattanetwork.com/clubmgmt/applet_regatta_results.php?regatta_id=26379. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any changes.

Donations are still open through June 30th.
Let us not forget our purpose in racing this regatta – it is to help ensure that the Bob Hooper House can continue to provide care.
We challenge every boat – racing or not, to donate to this very important organization.
Instead of a registration fee – DONATE!
Instead of a penalty for not racing (haha) – DONATE!
Please keep track of your boat’s donations to possibly win a poster. Also the largest single donor will get a poster.
**Donating on the web site is GREAT! You can donate on the website through June 30th.
