Well, Week week 2 of the summer series saw 24 Sunfish race 2 windward leeward courses and 3 people did not get on the water in time. i coached 6 Opti kids so should of had 28. Great one design racing and a 2 time world Champion on the line along with some past College of Charleston sailors, some other present college sailors, etc. They had a fleet of 6 Optis. And there were 3 Snipe, 4 Laser but no Nate and have not heard from him. Total of 38 boats raced 2 very good windward leeward courses. I would say it is obvious that JIYC is trying their darndest to support one design. It is tough but trust me when I say the membership was impressed. We rented out 4 Sunfish at $10(all of them) We had a Laser(or two) available(none taken)(we only rent those to exsperienced sailors). We had a good mix of juniors and seniors with a age bracket of about 7 years old to 70. I don't know if our club iwth a 2+ year wait list will ever change its membership status but this is a start and we are open to any of you that will show up on Thursdays this summer. I would liove to see the local D12 sailors show up. We are not doing it on the week of the sunfish NAs(June 25th). Nate, after the NAs I go to race in Abaco until the 12th of July so the following week I will be glad to take you on in a Laser if you will let me know you will be there. Until then you should show up and give us a chance. We have a group of us who agree with you on some things but may need to look for other avenues and use what we have for now but the bigger the group the better. As an aside this weekend is the Hobcaw Regatta and next is the James Island Regatta and JIYC will definitely have Lasers. We need bigger fleets in these regattas to make people take notice. Get a few of your friends and put your Lasers on the water and show us you are as dedicated to One design in Charleston as JIYC sailing committe is.
