Just skip over to the Forms/Entrants tab (under Sailing -> Typhoon Nationals) and check out all the details on the 2014 Typhoon Nationals Racing in June. Jerry Latell of Latell Sails/Ullman Sails Virginia is going to do a video shoot the Wednesday evening before the Nationals and use it in an educational racing class (Speed Tips & Tune-Up Day) at Rappahannock River Yacht Club on registration day, Friday. His firm is also graciously hosting our cookout dinner that night, too. So, think warm and friendly thoughts as your dream about sugar plums and maybe a well-deserved finish in the races June 7th and 8th! (posted by Diane Cook-Tench on the Typhoon Nationals blog)
The website and email transition we’ve been working on since July has been completed. We’ve moved pretty cautiously to ensure that we don’t lose any legacy information or disrupt any mailing lists in the process. However, it’s always possible. Now might be a good time to browse through the website and, as a group effort, perform kind of an off-season cleanup of the information.
We have kept the structure and general look and feel from the old site, and if you’re not looking too closely, you might not notice any differences at all. The point of this was to keep disruption to a minimum.
Someone pointed out to me at a recent event at the club that some of the information, acronyms, etc., were outdated. Now might be a time to remind me of that. Please feel free to email email@example.com with any suggestions for the site.

The Tred Avon Yacht Club has invited RRYC members to come to their club in Oxford, MD, for a Sail-In on Friday & Saturday, October 18 – 19. There will be an informal dinner at TAYC on Friday night and a more formal sit-down dinner and dancing on Saturday night. Note: Jackets required Saturday for the gents. $35 per person. Dock space is available on a first come/first served basis. In addition, some moorings and limited anchorage spaces are also available. During the day on Saturday, there may be an opportunity to tour the MEBA school in Oxford and try out the large ship simulator that they use to train bay pilots. This is supposedly very cool – giving you the experience of piloting a 500-foot freighter out of Baltimore Harbor. We will let you know if this works out. Coleman Brydon (firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-357-8959) is the cruise leader. Please contact him immediately to sign up because the dinner/dance is limited to the first 100 people.
