Typhoon sailors, make a point to check out the 2013 Turkey Shoot Regatta. The Turkey Shoot is one of the biggest regattas for classic sailboats in the US. Known also a great annual fundraiser for Hospice Support Services of the Northern Neck and Riverside Hospice, operating in Gloucester and Tappahannock, it's a unique and lively two days of racing fun.

I've just learned that Yankee Point is hoping to see a good number of Typhoon Racers this Saturday, May 11, for their Spring Regatta. The race starts at 10:30am and runs until about 2:30pm
It's described as two handicap races on the Rappahannock River between Norris Bridge and Towles Point. Racing starts south of Corrotoman #2 in the Rappahannock River. Starts are being offered to non-PHRF rated boats. See instructions YPRCC.org. or contact Warren Hottle, YPRCCFleet@gmai

Fishing Bay Yacht Club holds a terrific, annual One Design Regatta Invitational. This year, it even counts toward our annual award for the top Typhoon sailor. A small fleet of Typhoon sailors are going to attend it, August 10th and 11th, just as they did last year. If you're not planning on racing in this Invitational, you can still participate in a wonderful weekend of events by simply volunteering for Committee Boat duty. They're especially in need of an experienced race starter.
Please contact Rick Klein, overall Regatta PRO, to let him know if you can participate. His number is 804.693.5629 or email him at Rgklein@aol.com. Last year, there was exciting wind, lots of fleets, great live music, and wonderful meals. I'm hoping to go back for more.
