Upcoming Florida Racing

Ron Kern sent this timely reminder about these "multi class" events coming up in Florida - all attract a good entry from formula racers . Support them if you can.

Island Style Classic - 25-26 Feb. 2012

The Island Style Classic is a great low key event in Sarasota, FL that welcomes all levels of racers. More information is available at http://sarasotasailingsquadron.org/calendar/island-style-classic-windsurfing-regatta-2012/ and you can register on-line at www.mswindsurfing.com

Calema Mid-Winters - 1-4 Mar. 2012

Midwinters is back at Kelly Park in Merritt Island, FL this year. More details will be available soon at http://calema.com/events/calema-midwinters-2012/

Jacksonville Windfest - 28-29 Apr. 2012

The first year for this event which will be held in Jacksonville, Fl at SailLaser, located at Fleming Island Marina. SailLaser is providing race and organizational support, and Fleming Island Club & Marina has graciously agreed to host the event. The venue is the St. Johns River, which is over 2 miles wide at this location. April is a great month for sailing on the River, with the potential for both frontal passages as well as late afternoon sea breezes. Registration is only $40 ($25 for students) and includes lunch Saturday and Sunday and refreshments Saturday evening. Notice of Race will be available soon.

"If you are on the fence about attending, please remember, the events are only as good as we all make them. Without us, the competitors, making the time & commitment to show up, have fun at the event, and thank the hosts/sponsors of the events, the future of organized racing won't be as bright. I encourage everyone to put everything aside, avoid the forecast as a reason the come or not, and show up and participate. I'm planning to and look forward to seeing you there! "

I just check the results that they offer at their website and it seems they are using only 1 discard for 7 races instead of 2...is that possible???

that was as published in the NoR. It was a multi Class event and the organiser wanted to keep the same scoring profile for all classes. Sometimes concessions need to be made - and it was the T293 North Americans.
