The mandatory Skipper's meeting is on April 13th at 10am at Don Snelgrove's home at 805 Scenic Place, Crownsville, MD. Please bring your annual dues for submittal to our treasurer, Richard Turman. Round Bay racing is not that far away. Get your boats ready and your crews trained! The 2019 race schedule is posted as well as Race Committee duties. Please see Race Events for details.
On a side note, one of our RBSA sailboats, Himmel, returned in November from a 6100 mile trans-Atlantic voyage to Italy. The final leg was sailed from Fort Lauderdale to Crownsville by four RBSA sailors: Duane Geruschat, Commodore Ken Shuart, Dave Malfroy and Don Snelgrove. Note the pictures below, with the RBSA pennant flying above the flags of the six countries visited. Welcome home, crew!
Many of our members have begun to use the RaceQs smartphone application to track their race. It's free, simple to use, and allows for all particpants to view a fully integrated race picture after the race. It is also a great learning tool and we have received absolutely great feedback on its capabilities. On the Race Events tab to the right of each completed race, you can click on a RaceQs replay of each race as well as being able to click on the results. RaceQs is a great learning tool and you can download it for both Apple and Android smartphones.
If you can't see the results on the Race Events tab, please create a username on the LogIn page and you will be able to see Race Events and results by next day.
