|Coming soon to a Lake Massapoag near you|
It's good to know after the seemingly interminable winter, that the ice is finally departing and it's just one week until the Spring Work Party at Massapoag. And just another week until racing starts.
This year is going to be like last year, with a couple of changes. Sunfish racing will be on Sundays at 1:00 from April 26 until May 30, the weekend of the Small Boat Regatta. Saturday racing will begin on June 6 at 2:00. Please note that the racing is going to start at 2:00 on Saturdays, not 3:00 as it has in the past. Second, we will be having a new class join the Sunfish and Lasers this year. Three racers have purchased RS Aeros, which is similar to a Laser, and hope to establish the first Aero fleet in the Northeast. They will be participating in both the Saturday racing and in the Small Boat Regatta on May 30.
While you're waiting, please remember that Barrington Frostbiting is still going on through April 26. Unfortunately your intrepid reporter has not been able to partake of the racing there so far this spring, so our reporting has been rather lax.
