The 4th Annual Carlos Aguilar Match Race will be sailed on the waterfront Dec1 - 4, 2011. We have 14 teams coming from all over the world and a fantastic group of international umpires to call the action. Stands are set up on the waterfront as are tents so there is really no excuse not to stop by each day and especially on Saturday and Sunday for the finals. Local skipper Taylor Canfield, Sally Barkow (USA) and Stefan Lindberg (Finland) are the high seeds but we expect very exciting sailing with our brand new racing format. Check out the carlosmatchrace.com website for more info.
We had great response from those that offered housing for the competitors but we need at least one car or truck to help chauffeur all the competitors around. If you have an old vehicle in your driveway it would be very helpful if we could borrow it for a few days. contact bill at stycisv.com
We also need quite a bit of help to get the boats ready for Carlos event this Saturday. If you are handy around boats please stop by. Will have a cooler of beer etc. We also need some artistic folks with clean hands to help put decals on sails and boat hulls. Lots of this work will be done in side the building. please stop by and help out on boats are the graphics. your help will be much appreciated.
On Sunday the 27th we will be sailing all the boats down to Yacht Haven Grand for the event. We will make a fun race out of it so even if you are not on a crew stop by and I'm sure we will get you on a boat for a beautiful spinnaker run to town. Race will start about noon. Have some fun and help out the event!
With Christmas on a Sunday looks we will have our annual visit from Santa Claus and Kid's Christmas Party on the 16th of December at Happy Hour. As always bring a present for your children and it will be delivered to them by Santa as they sit on his lap.
