Etchells Fleet Update 2014

We are excited to kick off another season of racing with our Summer series which will begin on July 5 and conclude on August 30th.  We are trying something new this year with moving the Around the Island Race to the weekend after our summer series on Sept 6th.

The Fleet is also very honored to be sending 6 boats to the Etchells Worlds in Newport in June 2014.  Many of the teams have been competing and training all Winter long at other regattas in the South.  The teams that are representing our Fleet are probably the best group of boats that we have ever sent to the Worlds.  We have had many top 10 finishes in Miami and each team has a good shot at possibly winning the Worlds.  We wish them the best of luck and to bring back the trophy to the SIYC and Fleet 15.  More information can be found here:  http://www.etchellsworlds.org/

Cheers,

Don
