Sunfish Nationals at Midwinter – BWYC


Come get your last of 2020 sailing in at the Sunfish Nationals at Midwinter in Bay St. Louis, MS!   This is all kinda last minute so register and let’s make this happen.  I know a lot of people have been clamoring for a big regatta in 2020. Well, this is it!

We have the last 4 of the 2021 World spots up for grabs.  We’ll award for the top 3 juniors, top female, tops in all the master categories, and top 5 overall.  Most importantly, we’ll have a lot of fun.

Registration is officially live.  If you don’t know your sail number make it “0” and we’ll get the specifics later.  I need to know you’re coming though so we can plan accordingly.

Conner Blouin, you gotta come as the reigning national champ.  Think about it, you’ll save all that money from shipping the perpetual to Bay St. Louis.

We’ve got Rich Chapman, Bob Findlay, and Gretchen Seymour driving all the way from Chicago so no excuses from anyone else.  If you happen to arrive early, we’ll have an informal practice session on Thurs, Nov 12.

We have plenty of room at BWYC to spread out.  We’ll have a safe regatta and a guaranteed good time.

Sail Fast,

Eugene Schmitt
