US Laser Masters Just Weeks Away

2012 US Laser MastersThe US Laser Masters Regatta is just a couple weeks a way at Brant Beach Yacht Club on Long Beach Island New Jersey.  Already a number of District 11 sailors have registered.  For those who haven’t been to BBYC, they’ve got a 6-block long beach with plenty of space for launching (I’ve seen them launch 300+ Lasers in 30 minutes from here) and a short sail to the course.  BBYC has in recent years hosted the US National Championship and North American Championship, so they know how to put on a good regatta.  So if you are on the fence, let us know what will tip you towards going. And be sure to sign up this week, the fee goes up September 1.
