It's hard to believe looking out at all that snow but there are only 68 more days until Race 1 will be underway, starting at Port Credit Yacht Club. Circle June 2nd on your calendars.
Plans are well under way for our best season of racing yet. Registration numbers are on track with 68 yachts signed up already. Some of the usual suspects are absent but I am sure that they will be signing up soon. You will have by now noticed the revamped and improved web site which contains all the information you need to register along with your all important fees. Once your information is entered it will make sign up for subsequent years really easy.
One item that may hold you back is a valid PHRF certificate. Now is a good time to get that renewal out of the way, especially if you have changed your sail inventory or you purchased a new yacht.
As the countdown continues I encourage you to share with your fellow yacht club members the wonderful racing memories from 2012 and let them know what they are missing.
New for 2013 are LOSHRS T-shirts in BLUE. Each skipper and crew registered prior to the first race on June 2nd will receive of these coveted shirts which are available in all sizes at the Sunday morning skippers meeting.
Watch out for a LOSHRS newsletter in April. It's our way of keeping you up to date on upcoming events and articles on some of our own talented racers. You can also contact Joe Doris at Setanta227@gmail.com or Ian McAllister at Folichon34@rogers.com with specific questions.
Over the next few months check out our new website at loshrs.com. It will be loaded with all the content you will need for our series. There is a section for news and events, racing information and a list of the LOSHRS sponsors are on our sponsor page.
