US Nationals 2010

Post by BWR » Sun Dec 20, 2009 8:55 pm

International 14 U.S Nationals 2010

I have been in discussions with San Diego Yacht Club. After responses previously requested and discussed with the I-14 US fleet. We have a tentative date of Aug 20-22, 2010. Sailing will take place on San Diego bay for the required 'long distance race', and on 'San Diego Roads' or the 'near San Diego ocean' courses as deemed appropriate. The Sears, Bemis, Smythe National Junior regattas will be held the week prior. We will be sailing out of the currently being constructed Malin Burnham Sailing Center which will open in July 2010

Need to see some more entries. Prices go up in a couple weeks. Waren has been helping me organize some great plans for the weekend including special beers and tasty treats. Also have what I think will be really nice give away tops for skipper and crew included with entry. I may have some local interest in chartering boats if any available. I would really like to see some of the boats that haven't been sailing much make it to San Diego. There were requests made last year at North Americans by some sailors to find a place to have Nationals that wasn't as difficult to sail as some of the prior / recent locations - Gorge, Berkley Circle, Long Beach. San Diego will be moderate breeze 8-15 kts., warm water and sunny skies. August should bring nice steady sea breezes. Any ?s please contact me. Lots of motels in Point Loma with some links on the San Diego Yacht Club website http://www.sdyc.org , weather links, local info all available there.

Plans are coming together nicely for the 2010 I-14 US Nationals at San Diego Yacht Club. We have a great new facility to sail out of in the new Malin Burnham Sailing Center. We are planning to offer tows (with help from Sailing Supply) out to the course for those who wish for it each morning. Plan one race Fri afternoon outside, then probable Long Distance race starting outside, coming in and touring San Diego Bay with finish close to SDYC. Additional course racing outside on the Coronado Roads Sat. and Sun. I might mention you could see more courses than just windward / leeward, as these are not typically the championship courses we see at the Worlds. We have sponsored beer kegs from North Sails One Design and Glaser Sails. Great give aways / shirts with the entry. Have some cool 14 hats / visors available for purchase. We are planning a no hosted 14 party at Fiddler's Green (with specials extended to the fleet) Fri evening after beers at SDYC. Another keg after sailing Sat. and a hosted burger bash / pool party at the SDYC pavilion. Some munchies and more beers after sailing on Sun for the awards. We have some great giveaways by one of our main sponsors - Ronstan, and not all the swag goes to the top boats either. This should be an enjoyable weekend of sailing and I hope many will make the effort to come down and show the strength of the International 14 fleet. Look forward to seeing everyone.
