Yes, it's true. The U.S. Modern Moth Nationals will take place June 16 at the Brigantine Yacht Club in Brigantine, New Jersey. One day, due to the short life of duct tape.
Racing will begin when the wind fills in, which, as some of you will remember, was fairly early last year. Please r.s.v.p. to George Albaugh (ALBAUGH@307.bhnrc.usda.gov), and indicate the number in your party, how many boats and hangers on you intend to bring. The entry fee last year was just $20. (the best deal in yacht racing), however this may be adjusted to cover fuel charges incurred operating the club's large barbecue grill. Personal floatation devices need to be worn at all times, particularly at the bar after the days racing.
As you have noted from Moth correspondence over the Fall and Winter, this will be the last event before asymmetrical chutes become legal in the U.S. Even if the wind doesn't blow, even if it rains, even if Katherine Harris declares Joe Bousquet the winner before we all leave home, it will be worth the trip just to discuss the design changes expected in the class. Don't miss it! This will be the one and only notice about the regatta, with the idea that if fewer guys show up my chances are that much better!
