Tom Stokes of Long Beach Yacht Club has just phoned me to say that he feels pretty sure that if we multihullers can get four or five minimum boats together, we will be accepted at several other (remember the Opening Regatta?) typically monohull GYA races!!
There is (and has been) a multihull fleet invited to Fort Walton YC for their Meigs Regatta on July 11-12:
Long Beach YC has the Great Gulf Series regattas, including their own 'harbor races'
The Weatherly Regatta hosted at Gulfport Yacht Club on August 1-2
The Knost! This regatta is the WOMEN'S regatta. Women have to STEER, but can have men as crew. August 8-9 Pass Christian YC
Now, y'all, Tom is working very hard to get us invited. He really wants everyone to come play.
If there is interest, we can get the RC at these various clubs to work with us on courses etc.
PLEASE pass the word! Email all your friends! Post at the multihull sites!
Sam V. and Tom Stokes are very accommodating... let's have a good show!
