OK. I did get a reply from Sherri. Sounds like being an "official" recognized fleet like "Fleet number - - -" is nothing anyone really strives for these days and the thing to do is just be on your District secretary's e-mail list, (which we are) and have your designated fleet captain info in the hands of your district secretary, (which we have one and he is). To bad in a way. I think it would be neat to put on your club web site, "Home of Laser Fleet - - -". By the way our fleet growth has come from a simple little thing. People seeing folks out in a Laser with a couple of other boats to sail against all the time. Kinda like peer pressure I guess. They used to sail Force 5's around here, but have flipped to the laser, (thank God). We have not had any interaction with the class while doing this until we recently picked up a District event to host in the Fall and our district secretary has been a great contact. We're very excited about it as it is a milestone for our laser group and the whole club. I guess we'll just keep going as we have been.
