You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

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.

I do not have the link off the top of my head, but for us left coasters, there is an equal organization for single/short handed sailors. It may very well be a chapter of the one Max has linked too, will have to try an find out group I am thinking of.

JoeCooper is on a distinguished road
Short handed groups west coast and in general

There are two short handed groups on the west coast, in CA, and I have heard of one in the PNW. Since this is my first post on sail net I cannot insert the links but a search for either short handed sailing, double handed sailing will get you to most of the ones I would show if I could
sfbaysss dot org is on SFO Bay and is one of the oldest and best organized groups on the country/world I reckon
In marina del rey is the pssala dot org
The great lakes has two, solosailor dot org and
sailwith2 dot org
There is a new one in Texas and the makings of one in MD along with considerable interest.

The URL for the SSA is short-handed dot org; Not much on the site now, content wise, but we will remedy that after this weekends meeting

And there are excellent groups in AUS and NZL
ssaa com dot au Hit links and scroll down to get to the NZL one. There is also a link on the AUS one to a GBR site called petit bateau, that is very good too.

Cheers
Joe Cooper

Joe,
I wish I had known about this. I sail quite a bit single-handed and would enjoy talking to others with a similar interest. Can you put me on your mailing list?
