Anybody have any thoughts? With respect to the masters Midwinters? Or midwinters generally?? We have bounced the hosting idea around in Austin fleet meetings since before there was a masters midwinters. Midwinters East and Midwinters West seems like a generally great concept for our huge land mass but it also seems like a gathering in the middle of the south would be a good idea as well. The plus side is obvious...one huge gathering in a central location. The down side is also very real. Our membership is largely in the East and also somewhat concentrated in the west. The current midwinters locations allow for a "straight south" trip. The "angle to the middle" is longer for everybody except the Minnesotans. Regardless, Austin's hat is perpetually in the ring for a Master's Midwinters Central on the weekend either before or after Easter. Houston Yacht Club would also gladly accept either the Masters or the open midwinters. For those who would like a two regatta trip, Seabrook Sailing Club and Texas Corinthian Yacht Club are fully capable of hosting a Masters Midwinters.
