Old Dominion University Laser Frostbite sailing series announcement

Hello my dinghy and Laser friends.. It’s was a long hot summer and wild-weather fall. But frostbite sailing time is here at last.

There is some big news to share about the annual Hampton Roads Sailing Laser Frostbite series: This year, Old Dominion University Sailing and its Big Blue Academy will be taking over the reigns to bring the program to a new level.
The Fall “Turkey Bowl” series will run 5 dates beginning tomorrow, Nov. 13 at the usual time and location: 10 a.m. (with first warning at 11 a.m.) to 1:30 p.m., Sundays at the Old Dominion University Sailing Center off Powhatan Avenue in Norfolk There will be a Winter and Spring series to follow..
As in the past, a limited number of charter boats will be available on race day for $10. Also, to cover the cost for Old Dominion, there is a nominal race fee with a discount for those who register for the series.
A big plus this year: Racing will be followed by some coffee or hot chocolate and a debrief with the ODU team that should help everyone improve their skills.
Big Blue will be posting information about the series and results, and I will continue to try to spread the word through our Facebook page at HamptonRoadsSailing group.
Old Dominion Sailing Coach Mitch Brindley has put together a complete NOR and registration form that can be seen at this link: http://www.bigbluesailingacademy.com/frostbiteseries.html
Please register early so ODU can get a handle on fleet size.
Weather forecasts for tomorrow look great for a series kickoff, with light southeasterly winds and termperatures near 60 degrees by afternoon. Perfect to shake off the rust without too much swimming and a chance to get in some close combat without too many crash and burns.
Thanks to all for the patience while we were trying to work out the series. As many of you know, Lisa and I have been running a little RC Sailboat business this year and it has taken a lot of our attention and energy.
Hope to see everyone on the water for a great series.
Robert Suhay

NOR for the Hampton Roads Sailing fall 2014 laser series

Dear Hampton Road Sailing friends,
I am pleased to announce that the Sunday Laser racing series at the Old Dominion University Sailing Center will return this year. So break out the gear and mark up the calendar.
The first regatta is set for two Sunday’s from now, Sept. 21. The series will run on Sunday’s through the first week of December with a break on Thanksgiving weekend (Sunday, Nov. 30). Race time is set for 11 a.m. to 1:00-1:30 p.m. (that seems to be working for everyone) The Old Dominion boathouse will be open at 10:00 a.m. for changing and rigging up.
The racing is free.
One of the keys to the continued success of this series has been the support of the Old Dominion University Sailing and I am pleased to say that charter boats will again be available for use on race day for a nominal fee of $10 which helps support Big Blue sailing. Charters are available race day on a first come basis, or with prior arrangement for those who need to travel far.
This year, we have been asked that all racers sign a waiver form for the college. I have drawn one up and attached it to this email, but copies will be available at the regatta.
I am really looking forward to a great season this year, and I hope you are too. The weather and water are still quite warm and the weekends have been delivering on the wind of late, so let’s hope that continues. I have received emails from several potential newcomers to the fleet this year, and so am looking forward to the size of our racing fleets growing this year.
Again, I look forward to seeing old friends and new ones out on the water this year. We are looking to build on the success of our previous years together and continue to make improvements to the course and race management, so please keep your ideas and suggestions coming.

Laser clinic at Old Dominion University in early December

Robert Suhay from the Hampton Roads Laser Fleet is taking a quick survey on behalf of Old Dominion Sailing head coach Mitch Brindley about a one-day Laser clinic in the first full weekend of December.

Mitch is trying to gauge how much interest is out there for a clinic and whether it would be preferable to hold the clinic on Saturday or Sunday.

The clinic would be run by Mitch and the Old Dominion University coaching staff and would involve classroom time and on-the-water drills weather permitting.  The fee for the one-day clinic would be $75.  Bring your own lunch.  Debrief snacks and drinks will be provided at the end of the day.

Could I get a simple show of hands of who is interested and whether Saturday or Sunday would be better? A quick email would do.

You can also direct questions directly to Mitch, at mbrindle@odu.edu or mbrindley@collegesailing.org.

Thanks very much for helping out with this. Should be a great event to cap the fall season.

Hampton Roads Sailing fall 2013 laser and dinghy series

It’s been a great summer, so let’s keep the momentum going and head out for some great dinghy racing with what I think we can now safely call our annual fall Laser and dinghy classic.

The Sunday Laser and dinghy race series resumes with a tune up race on Sunday, Oct. 6, at the Old Dominion University Sailing Center. The center will be opened at 10 a.m., skippers’ meeting at 10:30 and racing will begin around 11 a.m. Racing will finish by 1 or 1:30 p.m. so there is still time to catch the games or get the chores done.

There will be a one-week by-week due to a prior commitment, then the racing gets into full swing starting Oct. 20, same time and details as above. As suggested by several of our regular crew, the series will run for six Sundays, ending November 24 with some awards and such. One note, the ODU Monarchs are hosting a regatta on the weekend of Nov. 3-4, so we will be running without a committee boat unless someone can help us out there.

Mitch Brindley, head coach at ODU, has given the green-light for the series, so there will be Lasers available for charter for competent sailors. There will be some changes, though, this year, in order to help ODU keep their Laser fleet more tidy and organized. There are four boats set up for full rigs (the four on the top shelves) and four rigged for Radial sails (on the bottom rungs). Mitch has asked that we keep the boats standardized as they are in the racks.

With four full rigs for use this year, I will ask those wishing to charter a boat each week to send me a message so we can allocate boats fairly. I also have a spare hull at my house that I can trek down for use and I am pretty sure with a little advance warning we can muster enough for all those who want to sail. (At least, I will do my very best to get everyone out on the water) And those wishing to use my backyard (two blocks from the sailing center) as a depository during the regattas are still welcome to do so.

As in the past, the charters are done on a first come, first serve basis. Cost is $10 per regatta (thanks Mitch for fighting inflation).

A note for newcomers: Fall and winter are beautiful times on the water, but it is going to get cold and with that, comes risk. The series annually attracts a wide range of abilities, but we ask that participants have at least fundamental skills in dinghies and proper attire for the temperatures.

We look forward to another great year and hope everyone can make it out.

NOR Hampton Roads Sailing Fall 2012 Laser series

It’s been a great summer, but now it’s time to dust off the westsuit and booties and get chillin’.

The Sunday Laser and dinghy race series resumes this Sunday, October 28, with a tune-up at the Old Dominion University Sailing Center. The center will be opened at 10 a.m., skippers’ meeting at 10:30 and racing will begin around 11 a.m. Racing will finish by 1 ro 1:30 p.m. so there is still time to catch the games or get the chores done.

Mitch Brindley, head coach at ODU, has given the green-light for the series, so there will be Lasers available for charter for competent sailors. There are eight boats, and six full rigs. Charters are done on a first come, first serve basis. Cost is $10 per regatta. I also have a spare boat at my house if we run short.

A note for newcomers: Fall and winter are beautiful times on the water, but it is going to get cold and with that, comes risk. The series annually attracts a wide range of abilities, but we ask that participants have at least fundamental skills in dinghies and proper attire for the temperatures.

The series will open (in the tradition of last year) with an away-game at Fishing Bay Yacht Club for their annual End-of-the-season Frostbite. So many of our southern bay regulars commit to that great regatta and excellent club. If you haven’t been there, it’s worth the trip and Jon Deutsch is a great host.

The series picks up again at ODU on the following Sunday, Nov. 11, and will continue through Dec. 9.

We look forward to another great year and hope everyone can make it out.

Please feel free to contact me at robert.suhay@pilotonline.com and be sure to spread the word.

Summer dinghy racing at Old Dominion University

Lasers at ODU

It seems so long ago now that we wrapped up in wetsuits and wandered out into the Elizabeth River for Sunday morning smackdowns. And I am happy to report that the fun at ODU is about to crank up again — this time courtesy of Mitch Brindley, Charles Higgins and the Old Dominion University sailing center. (So the scoring should be much fairer to everyone whose son is not also the race committee.)

This will be a pretty exciting opportunity for all. You can rent a boat (FJ or Laser) for cheap and come out on Thursday evenins and race beginning July 7 and running through Sept. 1. Plus, the series features a post-race de-brief with the experts, so here is a chance to improve your skills with some of the best coaches anywhere. (no exaggeration)

I have copied the information about the series below. Check out all the details and get information about ODU’s summer sailing camps (for the kids and for the adults) at this link: http://www.odusports.com/camps/oldd-camps.html.

I know I am penciling in vacation days for Thursday nights and I hope to see you there, too.

Our co-ed youth lessons put kids, ages 10-16, on the water in a fun, active, and recreational atmosphere. Learning boating safety, basic, intermediate, and advanced sailing skills. These young sailors will have an outstanding summer as they master a sport they can enjoy for a lifetime. This is a great place to get your child comfortable around water and build their confidence. Learning how to sail in a controlled environment is an experience your child won’t soon forget.

I hope to see you on the water!

Mitch Brindley

p.s. for those who enjoyed sailing with the college team this winter, here is the wrap up that was posted on the Old Dominion University web page on their showing at the coed nationals. Lets give the team a round of appreciation.

June 1, 2011


CASCADE LOCKS, Ore. – The Old Dominion coed sailing team wrapped up its season Wednesday with a 15th-place finish at the Gill/ICSA Dinghy National Championships. A total of 14 races were completed in both divisions during the three-day event, including four races in A-division and six races in B-division today.

The winds on the Gorge cooperated Wednesday and the competitors were able to get in a good day of racing. The westerly winds stayed steady around 10-12 knots, gusting higher later in the day. In the end it was Boston College who commanded the lead and won the Henry A. Morse Memorial Trophy.

The Monarchs posted two Top 10 results in A-Division racing Wednesday as Stephanie Roble andMiles Martschink posted a ninth-place finish in race 12A and a seventh-place showing in race 13A.

Roble and Martschink, along with Emily Reich and Brady Stagg combined for a 13th-place finish in the A-Division. Dillon PaivaGavin RudolphJulia Wiesner and Stagg all saw action in the B-Division racing, where ODU finished 16th overall.

Dinghy Crazies,

It’s TIME for the first ever Laser/Sunny/FJ/420 Frostbite series in Hampton Roads (and yes, if you show up in anything else you can still race!!). We are sailing out of the ODU sailing center. See attached NOR beautifully created by Rob Suhay.

Don’t miss out due to not having the right gear!! Wetsuits can be had very cheaply off of craigslist or ebay, and most retailers are selling them very affordably in the off season as well. You want a 3/2mm or thicker. I saw a few on craigslist for $50 almost brand new!!

Other places to get good gear at great prices include Intensity Sailing: house brand winter gloves for $14, close outs on Dry Tops and Hot Tops for $50, Aquafleece for $70. Annapolis Performance Sailing has a much bigger selection but prices are a bit steeper. No, I don’t work for either company, just know they have good gear and customer service!

Water temps are still over 60deg so it’s not really frostbiting yet, so come on down and sail!!!

Email Rob or I with any questions or to RSVP so we have a somewhat accurate boat count!!!
