Thoughts on Eastward Ho?

I’m trying to gauge the interest in doing an Eastward Ho race this year to make up for the canceled Solstice Race.

The transient slips have been installed in NB and are available again.

I have 2 thoughts on the format:

1. We do what we have done traditionally. Race to New Buffalo Saturday afternoon. Gather on the dock (masks and social distancing…) that evening. Race home Sunday morning.

2. NB is doing some cruiser class style racing this year (that was the flier I sent out previously). We could race over Friday evening. Perhaps gather for a socially distant cocktail. Race with them Saturday morning. Cruise home after that (or stay if you want to hang out in NB). Their Saturday morning races start at 11am EDT and conclude by 1pm.

Possible weekends this would work are 8/15, 8/29, or 9/12.

Please let me know your thoughts and I’ll get something on the calendar.
