Loring Landsailing IV will be held at the old airbase in Limestone, Maine, Wednesday May 11 through Sunday May 15.
Accommodations at The Bunker Inn on the base, or Caribou Convention Center in Caribou, about twenty minutes away.
Wednesday: set up and open sailing
Thursday: Tour de Base group sail, basically a race but not scored. Some scratch racing. Group dinner at Northern Maine Brewing Co., Caribou, @ 6:30.
Friday: Skippers meeting 9:00, flag drops for first race 10:00. Unlimted class and BloKart class. Unlimited starts first, sails two blocks. BloKarts start next, sails one block, same as last time, subject to wind speed and direction.
Saturday: Racing ditto. Cookout on the flightline Saturday night.
Sunday: Racing until noon.
There aren’t as many BloKarfts this round so at this point in time they will race as one class with no weight divisions.
BB Hredocik will be attempting to break the 24 hour mileage record of 283.7 miles held by New Zealand. He will choose the best weather window for this attempt over the course of the five days. If he is out there when racing is taking place he will have full right of way in all conditions. Our goal is to support him in his attempt. The Kiwis might own the Americas Cup, but we might be taking the BloKart Cup.
Send $100.oo, your name, class and sail number(required) to:
31 Gosses Hill Rd.
Camden, ME 04843
Bill, my check will be in the mail shortly. Looking forward to it.
You may have heard that Dave L. can’t come because of his injury and Gary and Chrissie have a conflict with their water boat schedule. I haven’t heard from Mike Holford (WA state) since his first enthusiastic emails. I did hear that one production kart guy in NJ was asking if they’d have a separate fleet so that may be a minor issue, but unless we get 15 or 20 I agree that it makes more sense not to split up the Blokarts.
We should have fun! Hoping for wind for BB’s record!
