2020 Wife/Husband Championship coming to CSA
October 2 - 4, 2020

Fleet 83 has been awarded the 2020 Flying Scot Wife Husband Championship. Bronson will serve as Regatta Chairman.  This will be a fleet-wide effort and many hands should make light work.  In a lot of ways, this will be business as usual for us as far as the steps needed to run a regatta. Bronson will need some committee heads to step up and take a task. 

Here are a few positions that need to get set up pretty soon to establish the budget.

  • Registration (web based using Regatta Network and on-site registration and checklist items)
  • Meals (organize meals and establish a budget)
  • Sponsorships (Seek donations for beverages, give a-way swag and organize a raffle with prices)
  • Lodging chair (organize/negotiate group rates and provide assistance with registrations, reserve rooms for out of town PRO staff)
  • Trophies (provide trophy concept, pricing and when approved, execute trophy order, delivery to the event)
  • Welcome Party (organize parking areas, and ice breaker activities for sailing teams, work with Meals)

We already have tentatively selected a Regional PRO and a very qualified US Sailing Judge to preside over the racing. Bronson will organize the remainder of the Race Committee and continue to delegate/manage as we go along. Can you help? Contact Bronson.

NOR, online registration coming soon. Watch this space!

2020 travel to CSA just got a bit harder


If you come to CSA via I-255, you'll need to revise your route. A stretch of I-255 in Illinois will be shut down starting February 1 and continuing until Thanksgiving,  See story.

Get in on the fun. One of these Scots could be yours
