The district secretary says Santa Cruz qualifies as a fleet for the short course champs this year, so I hope you all can motivate and make a good showing. There will be a potluck afterwards and Emilio will bring wine from his vineyard. Yeah, its short notice being this Saturday 10/10 at Alameda Community Sailing Center but at least its happening. Let Stephen Aguilar know if you’re going so Roger knows how much jambalaya to prepare: sailsteve55 at gmail.com <mailto:sailsteve55 at gmail.com>
The NOR PDF is 150K and blocked by the list so David will work on that and you’ll probably get it tomorrow. I’ve extracted the text and pasted it here:

hard to define so boats must be in compliance with the class rules, which is implicit in
1.1. Sailors are encouraged to be as loose with holding each other to compliance as
they are in their home short course fleets.

This is intended to foster friendly competition between the fleets, which hopefully will
encourage each fleet to help its members grow their skills.

sailor’s score in the fleet team competition is 1 + the number of boats they beat.
10.3 Short course fleets must have at least 4 regularly scheduled events this calendar year
to qualify for team scoring. A yacht club junior program may enter as a team. Ad hoc
teams will not be scored to preserve the incentive for fleet growth.

Shoreline Lake, Santa Cruz, Belvedere Lagoon and junior programs. Any short course
fleets not listed are encouraged to join in.
