Hay MIke et al:
Don't forget Fishing Bay - its this week end coming up. I have 7375 on its side in my shop - just installed two brand new suction bailers. We'll be at Fishing bay and hopefully not have to bail continuously!

>> I don't have final results, but if I remember right, Rolf was fifth,

>> Coming up, the West River Labor Day Regatta marks the beginning of the

> Sterling's last regatta, and I think after Ware River, he is very
> determined to beat both Marty Minot and Barney.
>> US Nationals is going to be held somewhere we haven't been in a while -
> Rock Hall Yacht Club. As usual, it will be held over Columbus Day
> weekend and is only about a two hour drive from DC. Start looking for
> crew (sorry Daphne!) and rentals soon. Camping is available on-site and
> there will be beach launching - and if I remember right, there is a
> really nice bar at the club too. Gene Spillane is doing hard work of
> putting together the event and has lined up a good PRO and crashboats.
> We do need RC volunteers, so if you know anyone who would like to spend
> a day or two or three on the water, please let Gene know at
>egspillane at earthlink.net<mailto:egspillane at earthlink.net>.
>> That's about it for the travel regattas - West River and PRSA have
> summer series and the fall series at PRSA starts up right after Labor
>> See you on the water!
