2010 NAC / Regatta Status ?

First and foremost, let me state that the tragedy taking place in the Gulf related to the oil spill and it's environmental and economic loss is first priority; the facilitation of a sailboat regatta is rightfully so, low on the list of priorities right now. That being stated, have local authorities given any indication as to the access to bay waters for recreation if this situation continues to deteriorate and if access is restricted, is there consideration being given by regatta organizers to an alternative venue. Unfortunately, the six week window is closing in for cancellation of housing deposits without a penalty and it seems that local realtors are unwilling to amend their refund policies at this time. Let's all pray for a timely end to this devastating event, with as little impact as could be reasonably expected for such a disaster.

Friday, May 07, 2010 6:53 AM Subject: FS NAC Oil Spill update 2010 Flying Scot NAC --- Bulletin May 6, 2010 The Regatta is still on! Preventative measures have been implemented with oil booms laid across the mouth of the Bay of St Louis. These booms are anchored by the train bridge, the southern-most bridge. A secondary oil boom is possible by using the car bridge. The car bridge is to the north of the train bridge. (NOTE: the BWYC race course is north of both bridges.) We are planning a great regatta, with perfect winds, good food, a great atmosphere to visit with family and friends. See Ya'll on the Bay! Ann Edwards Regatta Chair
