The calendar is nearly empty, now is your chance to announce regattas or other beachcats events. The calendar is proving to be a very popular information source for our members. Please submit any events still scheduled for this year, and if you already have dates for 2003 go ahead and submit them also.
Got something to sell? Why not place a FREE classified ad with picture while people are still sailing? Earn some money to pay for that winter project.
I'm planning to use the Bookstore as a reference point to start book discussions on the Beachcats mailing list. So add your favorite sailing related book (especially beachcats books) to the bookstore.
Anybody have any ideas for a new poll?
What's your favorite part of www.TheBeachcats.com? What would you like to see here?
There are a few places to launch a catmaran aside from the local boat ramps. Here are the one's I've used fairly often...
Looks like the Yahoogroups list is not quite working properly. I made some posts early this morning that did not go through and there has been only one other post made since midnight.
I don't know how much of a pain it would be for Damon but I would much rather have our list here rather than at Yahoo if we could keep most of the same features (archive search, read & post from web, picture and file archive). A bonus would be to have an email address from here as well. What does everyone think?

----comment from Damon----
Thanks Lance, I can handle all the features you mention except posting from the archives.
I am considering offering TheBeachcats.com email addresses, they would include POP3, IMAP, and webmail interfaces so you could use "Yourname@TheBeachcats.com" from anywhere. I can't do that for free however, and neither can Yahoo, starting April 24th they start charging $30 per year for "Yourname@Yahoo.com" POP3 service.
I could match that and maybe put together some other TheBeachcats.com packages like your own website named either www.TheBeachcats.com/Yourname or Yourname.TheBeachcats.com. I would appreciate comments on this subject.

I have just moved my Hobie 18 to Marina Del Ray, CA. I;m looking for people to sail with and people whom I can learn from since I am a novice sailer. Thanks Brad Gaian

No one will ever log in if they have to remember these ridiculous passwords. Are we trying to get into the pentegon computer? I hope I am overlooking a way of changing password.
Why yes, you are missing a simple way to change the initial password! Click on "Your Account" at the top, and then click on "Change Your Info" and look all the way to the bottom of the page. Fill in both password blocks with your desired password and click submit.
Thanks for the question, everything is new to all of us. Of course it's all obvious to me because I built it, but I need to know of anything that doesn't work as you'd expect, or is just plain annoying like the password thing.
