NAC’s – Come on Board for Weights & Measures – 2009

Weights and Measures Committee seeking fun, sailing oriented volunteers.  Looking for a few great sail enthusiasts!

Background: EYC is hosting the Flying Scot North American Championships for 2009. As a One-Design class boat, all FS boats must meet the specifications of the FS class to participating in the NACs.  The weights and measures committee has the “weighty” role of making sure all boats meet these specifications.  All club boats must be weighed, safety checked and sails measured. All other boats are assigned to one of any of these three specification checks.

Needed: The W & M committee requests your help and invites you to have fun too.  We need people to help staff the various “checkpoints” of this weights and measures process.  Training will be provided, experience is not necessary.  This is a great way to meet many terrific sailors and to get a look at some smooth sailing boats — up close and personal!

Of Note: your volunteer obligations are completed before the races begin!  All club and local boats are checked in the weekend of the EYC regatta, and if necessary, during the week between the regatta and NACs.  Other boats are checked in on Saturday and Sunday prior to ANCs, August 1&2.  You need not be available for the whole time.

All Hands On Deck!  Let Donna Scattergood know ASAP if you are interested in being a part of this committee. We can sure use your help.
