Happy New Year!

This year looks to be another good year for Milltown racers, with our regular set of race series including the Saratoga Sprint, and adding in an opportunity for a Leukemia Cup Regatta (more coming). Our pursuit races have some new destinations that should be fun races and even a decent cruise if one likes that stuff.  We have also seen a few more boats coming out and getting PHRF ratings. Remember to invite other boaters on your docks to join in some of our Milltown social events and special invites for the summer Log Dodge races!  Only way we can grow the club and race competition is to ask others to participate.  Our first change in race etiquette is to join up at the clubhouse after each race for results and guffaws. 

Monday evening at 7 is our first Racer meeting where we will finalize the Notice of Race for the year, turn in our annual racer registration which helps keep Milltown all afresh with confirmation of ratings and insurance, and finally discuss any rule changes for the year - like F-Mark is temp Orange only and the L-Mark at Langley is temp only as well.  Reminder also that regardless of the start and finish mark letter color, you always start headed toward the first mark of the course, and finish in the direction from the last mark of the course.   NO "Button Hook" finishes.  And for those who still wonder, the finish of a boat is when it first crosses the finish line, not the whole boat going across.  You start on the nose and you end on the nose.

Like last year we have created an on-line “Racer’s Booklet” which contains each series NOR, our MSA race rules, handy reference to the Safety Equipment Requirements, plus other interesting racing stuff.  Race calendar is on Page 5 and 2019 Registration is on Page 6.  pdf copies are also attached.  

Look the Races booklet and other good information as well as this years registration form in the Racers Resources page here.
