late-breaking Wayfarer news
from Canada and abroad:


BOD late entry  deadline extended to May 25th

Trophies are ordered, the bands are set and it is shaping up to be a great weekend to be racing in the Bayview One Design Regatta. With seven of our one-design classes showing an increase in numbers year over year and the addition of the Buccaneer fleet joining in the fun, it is a sign of good things to come. As always we will have our photographer out on the water all weekend and will post the pictures on his site for all to enjoy.
As an added benefit to sailors, we are bringing in Bill Gladstone from North U, who will be out on the water filming our racing and will do a debrief Friday and Saturday at Bayview for those who want to pickup on some tips on how to get to the front of the fleet.
Now to the business side, I notice some of you have not paid your entry by the late entry deadline of May 8th, so I have extended the late entry to May 25th for those of you that forgot. So make sure to get paid up and get your waviers set for your crews and let your friends know that they have to May 25th to get in on one of the most affordable regattas around.
It is my goal as tradition at Bayview Yacht Club to make this one of the best regattas that you will attend and want to come back to year after year, so if there is anything I can do to make your time at our club better feel free to let me know.

Subject: on-line participation sheet

To USWA and CWA members that would like to skipper and any person wishing to crew in the US National Championship and/or the North American Championship.  We have added a Participation Sheet to promo pages of those two events in the Wayfarer Events Calendar that allows you to indicate your possible participation in one of these racing events. 
With this timely information your National Association can better handle the logistics and planning for these major events when we know how many boats and crews to expect. 
There is also a place for skippers to indicate a need for a crew and a list for available crewmembers to provide their contact info.  This does not replace the registration required by the NOR and your indication of participation is not binding. There is a space for comments following your boat information. See you on the water, Jim Heffernan
