Hello everyone. 

As of May 9th we are up to 68 entries for the 2017 Beacon Group Viper 640 North American Championships to be held in October.  With all the enthusiasm we have extended the early  discount to this coming weekend. 

We have three teams looking or boats to charter for the event.  If you are unable to make this massive Viper gathering, maybe you can help fulfill the dreams of others who are trying to make it.  If you have the abilityy to charter your Viper for the 2017 NACs, please contact Craig at contact@gulfperformancesailing.com

If we can get up to 70 entries by this Friday night May 12th, we are willing to extend the early entry discount another two weeks. 

Lets try to get to 80?...........

Been busy ya'll.  we are now up to 73 entries.   We are being told to expect at least four more entries in the coming weeks.

  We are also looking for at least five charter boats for some international teams.  We may have some GYA area clubs looking for used boats after the chartering (if chartering becomes available).  So if you are near the southeast, and you have a boat for sale and are not sailing the event, we may be able to charter it out for you and maybe sell it as well.  Private message me if you think that may work for you.

This event very well might hit 80 boats. 

Gonna be one helluva event.

Thank you , Beach Liquors, for signing up as a Silver Sponsor for the 2017 Beacon Group Viper 640 North American Championships.  Beach Liquors is real close by to the Fort Walton Yacht Club, and for those of you staying in Destin or Okaloosa Island for the event, you will be passing by Beach Liquors each day.  : http://www.beachliquors.net/

Speaking of Okaloosa Island, Lodging Sponsor Seaspray Condominiums still has some units available, ask for the Viper North American Championship special: http://www.seaspraycondos.com/Content/default.asp

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!
