Full disclosure: last post was written by me (Cam). Sonia has just given
me a kick under the virtual table saying that as Race Chair of an event that moves every year, she would never post something so stupidů

I have very kindly been provided with a table that will provide us with a rough and ready means of scoring this novel race format.

We've now had a couple of meetings about the 2018 event which will be held on the first Saturday of June, which falls on the 2nd this year.

The new crew at Easter Seals is all fired up and the plan appears to be to bring back THE PARTY. Yes, the whole shebang, free beer, free food etc etc. Open to the public. A real bash. Still working on the details but this is the direction. This could be the start of something magical again, or this could be us going down a la Animal House Toga Party while on double-secret probation. Either way, you don't want to miss it!

The race format will be the same as last year with a few tweaks in light of the experience gained in running this unique format.

There will still be registration, and this will be open in February. The goal is to get 45 boats out. Lets see if we can do better. The format is totally furniture friendly.
