Our request for rental of the West River Sailing Club (WRSC) has been approved. The dates for our 2011 Rendezvous are 3, 4, 5, Oct (Mon, Tue, Wed) at the WRSC (on the West River) in Galesville MD (about 8 nm South of Annapolis). Please note these dates on your calendar.

The details of registration and cost have not yet been determined..... .... I expect the details to be available, and provided, in mid-August......

Meanwhile, if you have any suggestions for discussion topics, and/or if we may convince you to give us a talk about your Whitby/Brewer experiences, please let us know.

Also, if you have any questions, please let us know.

Hey, John! Martha and I will bring Laume II , hull no 2 and the subject of the Cruising World article, to the Rendezvous. Please reserve a slip for us, if possible.
We have done extensive refits in the last 2 years, notably:
Rebuild (with exhaust and intake mods to greatly increase efficiency) of our Perkins 4.236
Replacement of the DC system from batteries to DC breaker panel to meet current ABYC standards
Added additional surface area to the rudder (she now responds very precisely to rudder inputs)
Closed off all 12 water inlets/outlets, replacing with 4 proper seacocks

If any of this is of interest, I would be glad to share.

Looking forward to seeing you in October

John,

Very pleased to hear from you. Yes, we are very interested in your upgrade of hull #2. We will place your name/subject on the agenda for a presentation. Please let us know if you are able to do a Power Point presentation....along with pix.

At this time we can't guarantee space at the WRSC pier..... however, based upon past years attendance, most likely you will be able to get to the pier......if you arrive (early) on Sunday, (we should have access to the pier by then) we should be able to get you alongside the pier.

thanks,

John Cece
coordinator
