2011 Billy Bowlegs Regatta, Fort Walton Beach, FL, June 11-12

Reference the topic on the main events forum...

All, The Fleet Captain at Fort Walton Yacht Club has (again) approved a Viper 640 Class at the 2011 Billy Bowlegs Regatta.  The event is scheduled for June 11-12, 2011.  The NOR is not up as of yet.  6 boats will get their own start, W/Ls.

The event typically brings in J22's and Thistles.  It is during the pirate festival in the area.  Typical seabreeze coming off the Gulf of Mexico into Choctawhatchee Bay is around 10-15 knots out of the south-southwest.  Slight chop wind breeze is up.  Grass area to park on.  Hoist so you do not have to put trailer in water. Showers, RV and tent camping permitted on site. Some hotels no more than 10-15 minutes from regatta site.  The bar serves some really good BushWackers (the real ones with ice cream). Event historically has provided a keg, food, t-shirts, etc, but can't speak of that until NOR comes out) Good race committee work.  D and I will promote event, and provide trophies for class (1-3), Farthest Travelled, Goof Award.  Great nite life in Destin, FL if you wnat to go out and party, or D and I may consider a Viper party at our place (13 houses up from club).

Hope this generates interest.

Craig and Deborah
