Dear Tuna skippers,
Please welcome Kristen Soetebier as our new co-fleet captain for 2015!

Thanks to all of you who came out to the fleet meeting, it is great to see
what a supportive and nice bunch of people we have in the fleet! Below is a
short recap of the meeting:

We are very excited to plan the 2015 nationals at Corinthian Yacht Club
July 17-19, and hope to get a record turn out for the 50th anniversary. We
are reaching out to the Santa Cruz and Monterey Peninsula fleets to try and
get as many boats out as possible. Team Alegre and team Carlos have offered
to help trailer boats if that is necessary. People also offered spare
bedrooms and floorspace to crash, and the RYC and Treasure Island have
storage available for trailers and/or boats if people want to come up for
longer than just the nationals. Please help spread the word and get as many
boats on the line as possible!

Deb Fehr, Jennifer McKenna and James Dilworth will look into T-shirts,
bags, and/or sponsoring options.

Kristen and Anna will work with the CYC and PRO Mike Gross to get the NOR
out as soon as possible.

Two new skippers & family came to the meeting and will be mentored.

The spinnaker series has a mistake in the dates  as the SSS Corinthian race
is March 21.
The throwouts for the white sails series will be 6 races.

Other activities:
Several boats and crew will come to the starts clinic on March 22
James Dilworth will organize a cruise out some time later in the season
Anna will organize a spinnaker clinic later in the season

Other items:
Please review the new YRA minimum equipment rules that now also include "A
boat is recommended to have a throwing sock-type heaving line of 50' (15m)
or greater of floating polypropylene line readily accessible to the
cockpit.  Beginning 1/1/2015 it will be required" YRA requirements can be
found here: http://www.yra.org/racing/EquipmentRequirements.html

If you haven't payed your fleet dues, please send a check of $35 made out
to Wayne Best to:

Wayne Best
47 Maywood Way
San Rafael, CA 94901

Hope to see many of you out on Sunday 22 March for the starts clinic. It
now looks like we have a surplus of crew, so please let me know if you have
space for another crew or two.

Fair Winds,
Anna Alderkamp
