Heineken High Performance Dinghy Open, 11/12 Oct

Wondering how many are interested, or are already registered, for the American Yacht Club hosted "Heineken High Performance Dinghy Open" which is being held Sat Oct 11 and Sun Oct 12 at AYC in Rye, NY?

It's open to ALL performance dinghies with a Portsmouth rating of 87 or better.

So far it's roughly:
Class Total
5o5 ~ 15
A-Cat ~ 15
Contender ~ 4
FD ~ 3
Fireball ~ 4
I-14 ~ 2
IC ~ 10
K6 ~ 10
Moth ~ 6
Viper 640 ~ 3

With more registering on the actual day of the event, and a few 49ers are also making noises about showing up.

NOR and Registration forms can be found at the AYC website (American Yacht Club) since I can't figure out how to upload PDFs.

SIs will be handed out on Saturday morning of the Regatta.
