Yesterday (Monday, Sept 18) we had a great meeting of the SLF (both Laser sailors and RS Aero sailors) to plan both our frostbiting schedule and the Frigid Digit Regatta. Several decisions are incubating and we’ll announce them here when they’re finalized. Everything is on track, and it was a face-paced meeting led ably by Mark Ross.
A full 16 people were in attendance, perhaps an all time record for an SLF meeting.
It’s worth noting that both Mary Anne Ward, Executive Director of Sail Sand Point, and Andrew Nelson of The Sailing Foundation made special efforts to attend. It’s safe to say that all are agreed that the SLF, The Sailing Foundation and Sail Sand Point are planning on working together to strengthen the connections between the youth and adult Laser racers and get more kids in Lasers in the years to come.
