Dunedin Cup September 2015

Post by Southern Gales » Tue Feb 03, 2015 9:54 am

The Dunedin Cup is scheduled for September 18 thru the 27. Our course would be just outside of Clearwater Channel and right off Clearwater Beach! Great photo ops off of pier 60. The boats could be rafted up at Clearwater Harbor Marina. I would prefer to have our class race 25-27th as not to interfere with the championships held in Minneapolis. Although, unfortunately I don't anticipate folks making the long haul south just after the championships. I don't see the Dunedin Cup taking away from championship participants. However, I know of FIVE boats of our boats that are going to participate in the Dunedin Cup. Four of the boats are local and one is way south. There will probably be more boats from the east coast and a few from PGSC once word gets out. This regatta has the potential to have a significant turn out for our class. With that said, I'm all in by trying to make it work. Clearwater and Clearwater Beach are international tourist attractions so there is plenty of family entertainment to be had. Especially with the Clearwater Aquarium being the home of Winter and Hope, the dolphins from the Disney movie "A Dolphin's Tale". There are also plenty of resorts to stay at on the island and more modest accommodations on the mainland. a nice trolley system connects it all. Tell me what can be done to accommodate your needs (minus perfect wind) and we'll make it happen.
