3rd Annual WrinkleBoat Intergalactic Championship Regatta & Ran-Tan / Potter Yacht Invitational

January 17 - 19th, 2014 at Lake Pleasant,Arizona

Our gracious hosts are the Arizona Yacht Club at their Birthday Regatta! 50 + years of sailing in the desert.

For 2014 we have invited the Potter's - P-14, P-15, P-19 and 'any other' boats that 'started life' as a Potter! (You know who you guys and girls are.) A challenge goes out to all Potter sailors near and far - come have some fun.

In 2013 we had the second largest fleet with 12 boats racing!

Three days of winter racing in the warm Arizona desert! Camping or resorts - the choice of accommodations is up to you. Slips are available and group dining is on tap.

Our goal is to educate and develop sailing skills via a racing and lecture format - Guest Speakers are jumping on the wagon - a full list to come shortly.

Contact Gary O. at gilasailr@aol.com for any questions you may have about facilities/Lodging/Entries etc.

The Event web page will be updated shortly. (http://wrinkleboat.webs.com/)

See you at Lake Pleasant January 17-19, 2014

PS - Dry storage facilities are available if you will be sailing later in February at Lake Havasu.

I have a group of pictures and permission to post from the 2013 event - check it out at the 'Soon to Be Updated Web Page!'

Postby GHO » Fri Oct 04, 2013 12:21 am

2014 WICR/Potter Invitational

Calling ALL SAGES, Montgomery 10,12,15,17,23's AND POTTERS 14,15,19,19 Sport

Welcome to the 2014 WrinkleBoat Intergalactic Championship Regatta & Ran-Tan / Potter Invitational - let's just call it - WICR/Potter Invitational. January 17 - 19, 2014 at Lake Pleasant AZ (32 miles N. of Phoenix,AZ)

For 2014 we would like to Invite our good friends the Potter Sailing community - be they SoCal Potter Yachters, NorCal Potter Yachters or 'Lone Wolf' sailors!

The WrinkleBoat fleets have been lucky to have been included in events sponsored by the Potter community - It is our turn to reciprocate!

For 2014 we hereby extend a warm and heartfelt invitation to the Potter sailing groups to come share a sailing experience in the desert at the WICR/Potter Invitational!

We look forward to your participation and company whilst sailing!

The event is detailed here at the web pages - www.wrinkleboat.webs.com

The weekend is sailed as a part of the Arizona Yacht Club Birthday Regatta and Leukemia Cup Regatta. all of the events are wrapped into one ball of sail racing- party- fun in the desert in January. Great facilities - a unique venue,-great group of SMALL boat sailors- friendly and/ or spirited competition with the emphasis on education (new this year).

Why one would want to sail or race in Phoenix,AZ in January? - I can say that some of the same reasons drive me to go to the Cruiser Challenge - good people - good boats - good venue - good race management - fun - -fun - fun!

For 2013 we had 12 boats of all skill levels racing - We are here to help people race and to get the most from sailing their boat in basic skills - ie. sail trim, boat handling to help maximize your FUN !

Racing will be scored using Porsmouth ratings so everyone has a chance and you won't get beat by the 'bigger/faster/newer' boat! This is a friendly competition -folks - please No Wagering! ;>)

Feel free to contact me at gilasailr@aol.com if you have questions - camping/lodging/slips - past event participants etc..

We look forward to seeing as many of you as we did in 2013 and our friends that sail Potters!

Take Care, Have Fun, Come Sailing!
