Also keep in mind the pre-event, 2017 Marlow Ropes Viper 640 NAC Warmup Regatta : https://yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=4085

We are organizing a North Sails Viper Clinic For Tuesday, October 24th.  The only fee to register for the clinic is a smile.

Two more sponsors stepped up to the plate.  We would like to thank SpinSheet Magazine and the Mississippi Brewing Company for joining the 2017 Beacon Group Viper North American Championship team.  Thank you.

If you know of anybody on the fence about making the trip to the 2017 Beacon Group Viper 640 North American Championship, please put them in contact with Craig and Debora at contact@gulfperformancesailing.com to see what they can do to help the fence sitters.

From the 2017 Beacon Group Viper 640 North American Championship event:

Hello all Viper Sailors.

The 2017 Beacon Group Viper 640 North American Championships is still at over 70 boats on the line after early dropouts.  We are in our final planning and organizational stages so if you have not paid up, please do so quickly, if you need to drop out (but you better have a damn good reason to) let us know soon.  Some teams that have dropped out have given thier spot or boat to other teams, and we have been able to edit the entry to reflect such changes.  So to entice ya'll, if we can get eighty boats on the line, the last ten place boats,71-80 that actualy sail, will be given a bottle of rum, courtesy of Craig and Deborah, after the event is over.

There will be awards given to the top three Corinthian teams for the Championships.  To be eligible for the Corninthian awards, the boat must have all Cat 1 sailors on board.  So we are asking all teams to register their sailors as either Cat 1 or Cat 3 to verify teams.  Please go to the World Sailing (formerly ISAF) here to get your individual sailor classification: http://members.sailing.org/classification/?view=home&nocache=1&js=1   . 

The team at Doyle Boston Sailmakers have signed on as Bronze Sponsor to have some giveways for some lucky sailors.  Word is that Doyle Boston Sailmakers will be giving away two Doyle spinnaker snuffer socks on a drawing.  

Speaking of drawings, if any of you have a lead or a contact for a company that mya want to  donate a product for a drawing, please contact Craig directly at contact@gulfperformancesailing.com

Info on Bow stickers.  Right now the bow stickers are planned to be 11"x23".  This is prior to cut so sizing may change.  The bow number will be included on the bow sticker.  So any colored hulls will not have an issue with visible bow numbers.  Keep that in mind when the black flag goes up.

We will be emailing all competitors on a more frequent basis during the next few weeks, so stay tuned.  

Weee haaa!
