If you are amongst the lucky ones at ECSC, you already know that the racing season has gotten off to a great start with good attendance at our initial two Wednesday and Sunday races. We have noticed better turn outs than traditional beginning of the year participation and this is particularly true of our Sunday turnouts. We have a spattering of both new and old members amongst the racers. There have been a lot of upgrades to the club racing equipment, and we have been operating safely under the COVID limitations. We hope you will get your boat onto the water and join us soon.
Our first regatta is coming up the 21st thorough 23 of May…the Mayor’s Cup Regatta. This will be an invitational two-day regatta and will have traditional fleet racing formats. One-Design fleets with 5 boats or more may request their own start. There is a pre-registration requirement due by May 19th, so sign up and get others to sign up soon. Look in the ECSC website for the registration information and registration instructions.
There is still a continued recruiting process underway for a dedicated group of race managers and racing helpers to direct the racing activities for our club. The first training session for this group will be in the last part of May after the Mayor’s Cup. This instruction will be led by Geoff Endris and will be for other interested racers as well. More information will be forthcoming. If you would like to get in on the ground floor of this program, please notify Nancy Goff or me of your interest.
