Is $30 membership worth it?

One of the biggest benefits to being a member is that you receive a reduced price on a new mast. Paul Latour has graciously put together a system and means of purchasing a new mast. To receive the discount, you must be a current member, and also have been a member the preceding year. The discount is $300. Following is a report from our Secretary/Treasurer on the status of the mast blanks:


This February 2013 photo documents over half of the mast blanks safely kept by JSI in St. Petersburg, FL.  Your  Secretary-Treasurer documented all thirty blanks stored by JSI for us.  Mast blanks cost $900 to persons who have been class members continuously for at least one and the previous year, and $1200 to others.   JSI charges separately to finish a blank (pricing varies by parts recycled and aging; I connect buyers with JSI for details.  

JSI also stores spreader blanks for us. The class owns two sets of finished painted spreaders stored by JSI available for $250+shipping.  Connect with Paul if you need these.

Just want you to know that your money and masts are well cared for and accountable by your class leaders.

Mail Paul or the class president if you have any questions.

Paul Latour, Secretary-Treasurer

Third Place: Challenge

Second Place: Fun Uncle

First Place: Smile & Wave

The 2017 edition of the Class Championship was a memorable one. Micheal and Tovi Kiss along with all of the volunteers from Macatawa Bay Yacht Club put on a fantastic regatta. The weekend brought unseasonably warm temperatures at or near 90 degrees. The high pressure system brought light winds although there was decent wind in the mornings. We were able to have three races on Friday and two on Saturday. The wind died off on Sunday before we were able to start a race. The weekend brought three great events: beautiful sunset on the patio on Thursday with a one man band, banquet at the club on Friday and the highlight of the event was the party at the Kiss' house on Saturday night. First Place for the Regatta was a battle between Smile & Wave and Fun Uncle. The boats traded places back and forth almost every race. In the end it was Smile & Wave who became the 2017 S2 7.9 National Champion with their 5th in the last race versus Fun Uncle with 11th. Smile & Wave won the Regatta by one point. Be sure to keep your Sailing World subscription up to date as there will be a feature article on the race published within the next six months. Dave Powlison was onboard Relentless along with Evan Rodgers taking pictures on the photo boat. Thank you to all that made this a great event and we look forward to seeing you next year at Ford Yacht Club on Grosse Ile, MI.
