I was thinking of the 'local' sailors when I posted the notice. The first meeting was last year with about 70 participants and many noted single / short hand racers. This is a grass-roots effort, and things are very much at the primary stages. We had the first meeting amd then everyone went sailing.
Much accomplishment has been made with promoting double-hand starts in existing races all along the East Coast. However, the association is not only about racing, the theme is sailing "short-handed", whether racing or cruising, and looking at how the group can be a resource.
Hey Giu, I nominate you to be our representative in Portugal, are you interested. Also, we have been thinking about an 'educational' component, we'll have to talk.
TB and Sailingdog, I can keep you updated on the meet, and if you are interested in receiving info / newsletters, just send me your email and I can pass it on to Joe.
