Harbor20 Class/Fleet Membership Renewal

Harbor20 Class & Fleet Members,

Membership within the Harbor20 Class Association has been changed in the past year to be an annual membership that begins on Feb 1 each year, and is valid for 1 year.

Each year, all members must renew their membership online on the Harbor20.org website to remain current and be eligible to participate in Class and Fleet events.

In the past, we had a system where the membership would renew on the sign up date, that your membership renewal could be anytime during the year. In 2018, the Board decided to make all memberships renew on February 1st of each year.  That means, there was a period where some members had to pay partial year (pro-rated) memberships to sync up with the Feb 1st renewal.

If you signed up, or renewed your Membership in the last 12 months, you probably paid a pro-rated fee (less than the annual fee), which paid you through Feb 1st, 2019.

If you signed up (or renewed) your Membership in the past month or so, you may have been charged $0 since we had a grace-period enacted for anyone trying to renew early.

Do to the limitations of our online membership subscription system, the Automatic renewal to your credit card was not automatic, meaning, you will be required to log into your account on the Harbor20.org website, go to the Members tab, and Your Account menu item, and then click on the Subscriptions item on the left, to see your current status.  Many of of you may have receive an email notification saying you had to renew with a Pay Here link which you should do ASAP to renew your membership.

I encourage you to go to the website THIS WEEKEND, and log in, go to Your Account menu, and renew your membership.  I will be offering online support for a large portion of the weekend via online Chat on the website to help with any difficulties.

Click here to start. Or go here to sign up with a new Membership if your not given the option to renew.

Class Championship Boats

Harbor 20 Fleet 1 Owner Members:

 

As you may know, the 2019 Harbor 20 Class Championships, to be hosted by Fleet 1 and the Newport Harbor Yacht Club, is scheduled for March 1 , 2 and 3. Several Class Members from distant Class Fleets will be traveling to participate and are looking for local Harbor 20s to borrow for racing. If you are not planning to race, would you be willing to allow an out-of-town Harbor 20 crew to use yours? The skipper and crew that would be racing your boat must be experienced Harbor 20 sailors that meet Class Association requirements for participation in this regatta. We are currently working out details regarding assisting with written loaner boat agreements, including insurance and fees. If interested, please call me at (949) 945-8389, or send me an email to jwhitney25@gmail.com.

 

Thank you,

 

John Whitney

Regatta Chairman

Harbor 20 Cover For Sale

$450

Rather than new, this is used for several years. I found it in my storage unit. I recall I had the cover serviced by having the maker, Baxter & Cicero, completely go over the cover and re-sew all the seams, place a few new canvas patches, renew the leather in some places. This costs about $200. This is a very functional cover. As with all these covers, they attach by laying over the boom, securing the side fittings, then tying the cover tight to the two rear cleats and the bow deck cleat. Properly installed, it’s a sleek way to keep the boat really clean when not being used. It can be put on after every use, in less than five minutes.

There is a tip to renew or maintain any boat cover I will share with you. Get one or two very large Contractor-size plastic trash bags. Alternative is to buy a new plastic trash can. Don’t necessarily fold the cover, but stuff it in the bag. Then pour one gallon of Thompson Water Seal in the bag, over the cover, and shake, stomp, press, or whatever, the cover for ten to fifteen minutes. This allows the gallon to penetrate the canvas thoroughly. Next step is to repeat, with the same or new bag, and pour a second gallon. this will probably even result in a very wet cover. Take out the cover and place on a lawn, in the sun, spread out to dry. The canvas will be bright like new, the surface will be better-than-new water repellant. If you have time, maybe just do one gallon, let dry. Then repeat with the second gallon making sure you wet the dry, missed spots from the first time. Repeat this process every 5-7 years and your cover will never wear out.
