District 11 is switching from our Facebook Page to a new Facebook Group. This should make it easier for event organizers to post stuff and for sailors to connect to each other without waiting for Jon to get a post out.
Registration is open for the Atlantic Coast Championship at Carolina Yacht Club in Wrightsville Beach North Carolina May 6-7. Make reservations early before rooms start filling up.

As you know this is PRSA’s biggest Laser event of the year, so I hope everyone
can come out and enjoy two great days of racing.
If you have any other questions or suggestions please send me a note, and a
big shout-out to Nabeel and Len for their help getting things set up.

Dave Waiting is at it again with some cool SSA Frostbite Videos – this time with a 360 camera that you can pan and see in any direction as he sails. Click to view directly on YouTube to get the panning functionality.
SSA has posted the after-action report describing the events of December 18, 2016, when a strong gust front affected the standard Sunday-afternoon Laser and Laser Radial frostbite series. Thanks to all of the sailors, race committee members, and other SSA members who contributed to the report, and who are already implementing some lessons learned from the day to raise the bar on safety at SSA.
