USF-16 North Americans 2018

Dear F16 Sailors:
Hope your summer sailing seasons are going well.  We've had some great regattas here in the Midwest with the F16s racing very competitively against each other, as well as with F18s , Tornados and a Nacra 20, with which we typically share a course.  Any of these boats, well sailed, can take line honors, reinforcing the belief that the best sailors will usually win, regardless of which cat they're sailing.  
We had a nice fleet of F16s assembled in June to race in a combined Catamaran Racing Association of Michigan and Catamaran Racing Association of Wisconsin event, which was held on the southern tip of Lake Michigan in New Buffalo.  We had Vipers, Blades, Falcons and a Nacra all represented.  Racing was tight in a variety of conditions, and a fantastic time was had by all.  
This email is a simple reminder to mark your calendars for Nov. 2 - 5 for our North American Championships in Clearwater, Florida.  We had a great racing and super fun social events there last year, so those of us from the north are particularly looking forward to it as way to extend our soft water sailing season (a month later we've typically got the iceboats out).  Once again, we'll have the Nacra 15 fleet racing with us, which positive for youth development and exposure for the fleet to potential future members.    
Details will be forthcoming, but mark your calendars now, as you'll not want to miss it!
