Larchmont YC has taken over running the Midwinters and will host the 2019 edition on Saturday Jan 26 and Sunday Jan 27. The Notice of Race, online entry form and Sailing Instructions are on their web site:
We’re all happy the Midwinters A/B style regatta tradition continues!
The 2018 Interclub Midwinters will be held at SSA on January 27-28, 2018. This will be THE BIG ONE as we no longer have an active fleet and want to have one last big blowout regatta and party a la an Irish Wake. This is the standard A/B collegiate style regatta we have always run. There is only a nominal fee of $20 per division ($40/team) that includes the racing, dinner and party. We want all the old regulars to come and celebrate this regatta with us.
You can register online at SSA – please note each registration is for an A OR B team. If you are registering both, please register each separately: http://severnsailing.org/content.aspx?page_id=87&club_id=549086&item_id=733635&sl=761974981
See the Midwinters NOR for additional details.
We look forward to seeing everyone in January with some great frostbiting weather!
Ben Cesare/Ann Patin and David Dowd/Thomas Salerno win the 2017 Midwinters held at Larchmont YC.
Stay tuned for a report…
Sadly, for the foreseeable future, the Midwinters has left it’s home base in Annapolis. But don’t despair, the 2017 Interclub Midwinters will be held at Larchmont Yacht Club January 28-29, 2017 in all it’s “collegiate style” goodness. Each team shall have two skippers and crews, who will sail in ‘A’ or ‘B’ division. Teams will be able to stay warm in between sets in the clubhouse with food and hot chocolate.
Refreshments and dinner will be provided Saturday evening. Discounted entry fees are available for junior and college teams. The link for sign up and Notice of Race is: http://larchmontyc.org/Yachting/Winter-Sailing/2017_IC_MidWinters.aspx.
Update: Blizzard Jonas was indeed a massive storm setting a record 30 inches of snow and 50 knot winds on the bay with a travel ban on local and state roads Saturday and Sunday, so this was without a doubt the right call. Instead of the regatta, enjoy a trip around downtown Annapolis in the snow as the eye of the storm passed on Saturday.
Original Post: The Nor’easter weather situation for this coming weekend’s regatta has not improved and may have gotten worse if considering sailing conditions on both weekend days. Traveling to and from the event will be hazardous and the prognosis for sailing is poor. Therefore, we regret that the IC Midwinters will be canceled this year. Many thanks to everyone who has continually supported this event in the past and those planning on coming this year.
The 2016 Interclub Midwinters will be held at SSA on January 23-24. It is the standard A/B style regatta as in past years. The notice of race and online registration is available at the SSA Web site. The link to the NOR is at the bottom of the page.
