Register by 9 am Wednesday, September 23 for the Harbor 20 Fleet 1 Championship!

The registration deadline is Wednesday 9 am for the Harbor 20 Fleet 1 Championships hosted by Newport Harbor Yacht Club this weekend, September 25 and 26. Click here to register.

Drinks and appetizers will be served at Newport Harbor Yacht Club on the deck upstairs immediately after racing on both Saturday and Sunday.  Everyone in the Fleet is invited to the social gathering after racing on Saturday and to the Awards Ceremony on Sunday. We anticipate that the Awards Ceremony will commence one hour after the last race. Face masks and social distancing are required.

Because it is unlikely that we will be able to hold the Fleet 1 Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet this year, the trophy presentation for the regatta will include the annual awards including First Mate, Grand Master, High Point, Rain or Shine, Phyllis Drayton trophy, Phil Thompson Mentorship trophy, and the Arthur Strock Service Award.  Please plan to stay for the awards and refreshments.

2020 Mentorship Suggestions needed by September 23

In 2018 the Philip Thompson Mentorship Perpetual was awarded to the first recipient, Bill Menninger. Last year 2019 the recipient was Bob Yates and it is time to nominate our 2020 Mentor of the Year!

We are now accepting applications from Fleet One members accompanied by their story of the applicant they feel worthy of the award and why. These stories will be reviewed by the prior year’s recipients, the donors and two Harbor 20 Fleet One board membersand two Harbor 20 Fleet One members at large selected by the above committee members.

The stories of mentorship will be shared each year at the award presentation.

Please submit your suggestions by: September 23, 2020

To: sconzelman@gmail.com

be sure to make your subject matter: MENTORSHIP

We apologize for the short window however; the decision was just made to present at Championships instead of the usual awards event in December.

✨It is good to share with others your abilities and even better to reveal to them their own✨

Heritage Regatta Update – Saturday, August 15

The Heritage Regatta will be held on Saturday, August 15, 2020, hosted by Harbor 20 Fleet 1. 

Due to the coronavirus, the event is now planned to be entirely on the water near Lido Isle Yacht Club.  Although we won’t have a meal, snack bags will be served to all participants. 

The race will be a pursuit race, with more experienced racers starting after the less experiences racers.  The Race Committee will let each skipper know when they are to start. 

This event is free to Fleet 1 members and is $20 for non-members.  Come in your favorite Hawaiian shirt.  More information will be provided in the Notice of Race to be published soon.

We hope to see you there!

Please note that the Fleet Championship is held in conformance to class rules per fleet bylaw I.F.7.

THE DAVES – 4 Sundays in June!

Posted on behalf of THE DAVES. Thought this would be of interest to H20 sailors across the nation!

This is information about a new series which begins Sunday, June 7 at 7:00pm EDT.
  
A new 4-part webinar series
THE DAVES: A few of our favorite rules!

  Dave Dellenbaugh (member of the US Sailing Racing Rules Committee) and I (member of the US Sailing Appeals Committee) have teamed up to do a fun and unique series on the racing rules. Dave and I have been friends since playing Little League baseball and sailing at the Pequot YC in Southport, CT together as kids.   Please join us for this special webinar series about four rules we love to explain. In each of the four sessions we’ll go on a ‘deep-dive’ to examine the meaning and tactical implications of one particular right-of-way rule. The topics we’ll cover are: Port-Starboard (Rule 10); Avoiding Contact (Rule 14); Changing Course (Rule 16); and Proper Course (Rule 17).   THE DAVES begins on Sunday, June 7 at 7:00 pm EDT and continues for the remaining three Sundays in June. Each session is about 80 minutes long with video, diagrams, quizzes and references to appeals and cases. Dave and Dave will alternate as session leaders, and the Dave who’s not leading will be answering your live questions in the Chat.                                         

* Participant questions are encouraged!                    

* The price for the four-part series is $55, which includes access to replays of all four webinar sessions.                    

  We hope you’ll join us for this fun way to learn quite a lot about these important rules. – Dave Perry
