Our Thoughts are With the Tornado Victims

We want to extend our thoughts and prayers to all the families who are touched by the volume of tornado activity that is currently spreading across the mid-south and midwestern United States.  And to those who lost family members, our sympathies go out to you.  The damages that are seen on tv don't come close to giving the whole picture.  Those of us who are far away can only imagine how this is affecting so many people who no longer have homes or who are forced to leave their homes. Fellow Scot sailors, please keep all these folks in your thoughts. 

Sell Your Old Sails at the 2013 NAC

The Flying Scot Foundation has generously awarded a grant to North Carolina Community Sailing & Rowing (NCCSR) to purchase used sails for our 12 Flying Scots.  NCCSR is located on Lake Norman not far from LNYC host of 2013 NAC.  NCCSR will pay $200 for each retired racing set of main & jib brought to the NAC.  We will have a table set up at LNYC.  Selling your old sails to NCCSR will really help the community sailing racing and learn-to-sail programs and also help you dramatically reduce the cost of attending the event.  We have no limit on the number we will buy and will be writing checks at the event. 

Advance notice will be helpful but not necessary.  Contact Larry Vitez or Christy Lux.

Douglas perpetual trophy is awarded to Florida District Governor Mark Taylor for 2013.  This award is voted by the participants at the Midwinters and is given for sportsmanship demonstrated at the regatta.  Mark received a majority of the votes and is truly deserving of the award.  Congratulations Mark!
