This is great. Way to step up Melges419 and offer to open a door. Nate, what happens next is what you decide to do with it. I hope you revitalize the Charleston Laser scene. Work with this guy and ask Glenn and Doug for e-mail/contact info on D12 folks in the Charleston area. Pick a Thursday evening and have your first, (of what could be weekly) evening racing scene. Let us know what happens. Great networking Laser Forum!
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.
