2. NEWS!

  Our third build session Feb. 10, featured an education seminar presented by Professor Tom Melsheimer. Attending class were Wayne Forbes, Bob Green, Jim Hogan, Rick Lawler and Dave Steger. Tom brought all sorts of props including a bunch of batteries showing the differences between lead acid, nickel hydride (NiMH), alkaline, lithium iron (LiFE) and lithium polymer (LiPO).

The big take away from his talk was that one should get a good smart charger to properly service which ever battery type you wish to use. The big take away was how all need to be charged properly to maintain a good battery life. Tom also brought his prototypes of the gps speedometer and audio receiver. The units are about 20 percent larger than a business card and only 1/2 of an inch thick. This includes a battery, gps and transmitter for on board the boat, and a battery, receiver and processor for the skipper to wear on a pendant. Jim Hogan brought an extra hatch cover that could be used to hold the gps unit for easy swapping between boats. So far this training tool looks very promising.

Rick passed around his assembled keel for all to see showing how he reinforcement the seam. He will be using Wayne's fixture shown below to pull all the pieces together. It makes for a great light show!

Spoiler alert for those significant others that got a small box of chocolates on Valentine's Day today...

Jane sent everyone home with a box of Valentine's candy.

Until next time,

Dave and Jane

Sect. 3. Soling 1 Meter 2018 U.S. Nationals
September 26 – 29, 2018

FAQ's things asked about the NCR:

1. My wife, Eunice, is coming- how much is an extra lunch on race days??

$ 8 each day- pay at Check-in.

2. At the WRMYC Open Regatta this year, there were 3 No. 28's. How will you handle duplicate sail numbers??

On your entry form, you will state the sail number as it appears on your sails.

It is not required by the Class Rules to have numbers on the jib. It makes it easier on the race committee.

Just PLEASE have the same numbers displayed on both sails if you have numbers on both sails.

Duplicated numbers on sails- an e-mail will go out instructing the later entry to add a digit (1 or 7) in front of his sail number. (Obviously this does not apply if you have all four digits, AND if they match your permanent hull number- that is a unique sail number.)

3. 1/1/18: What's the deal on this Waiting List??

We anticipate that several, maybe many, of those on the Waiting List (WL) will eventually get moved up in order based on postmark date, to active entrants as space comes available.

Communications:

1. We notify each entrant by e-mail.

2. WL entrants traveling w/ another entrant as a pair

- can cancel his entry altogether.

- be moved up as TWO spots open. Notify Mike Wyatt.

- We are not cashing WL people's check until they get "moved up".

As individuals get moved up, we will again e-mail them accordingly.

4. 1/13/18: My wife, Moonbeam, is interested in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. How far is it from the regatta site?

The Rock Hall is on the waterfront in Cleveland. About 45 miles to the SW from Madison. It is open 10 AM-5:30 PM except Wednesday when it is open until 9:00 PM. So Wednesday night would be the time to go, unless couples would want to put together a day trip and skip the Match Racing.

Then return in time for the picnic Wednesday evening.

And, yes Moonbeam, the Rock Hall has extensive space devoted to the Grateful Dead.

11/22/17: Motel reservation code is needed for making a reservation- now added to the NOR- the code is "SRC".

1/13/18: Very inexpensive motel available: The Vogue Motel, on Rt. 20 in Madison OH is the low-priced choice for singles or sailors wanting a clean, convenient (but not fancy) room. Not for the romantic getaway your wife would appreciate.

Call later than Sept. 1- they do not accept reservations more than 30 days ahead of the planned stay. Go figure.
