Fleet 98 at Leatherlips Yacht Club is planning a fun event. It is our intent to provide housing with LYC club members for those who interested. We did this in 2020 and it was enjoyed by both hosts and DS guests. Contact Tami Chapman (tchapman0910@gmail.com) for info and arrangements.

If camping is your preference, we're exploring local options. Due to changes in our lease with the city, we will not be able to accommodate camping (vehicles or tents) on the LYC club grounds. If you plan to camp during your stay, contact Molly Flanagan at molly.flanagan601@gmail.com.

While we'll be providing dinner nearly every night, breakfast and lunch will be on your own each day. A list of local restaurants and other options (grocery stores, etc.) will be provided at registration. Please be sure to bring a cooler for lunch on the water.

Oh yeah, and we're in the process of booking one-design expert Greg Fisher to speak one night. More information will be provided as it becomes available.

Regarding weighing and measuring, if you can do this beforehand this is best. We reserve the option to weigh and measure any boat, but a valid measurement certificate will be accepted. Please try to have your boat measured locally prior to arriving at the event.

We are planning for a large turnout for the Junior NACR with members of our growing high school, junior and completive sailing teams. We'll need boats, so if you're willing to allow a youth sailor to use your boat in the Junior regatta races, contact Kevin Flanagan  at khflanagan@yahoo.com

Finally, for some folks, Monday is a holiday (Juneteenth), which may favor your travel schedule. In the meantime, RENEW YOUR DSA MEMBERSHIP and practice up. June is good wind in Columbus, and we look forward to seeing members from both coasts, as well as states in between. See you in June!
