- More groundwork on a fleet expansion project

- Progress on used boat market study
- All other business
There will be a Laser class meeting at StFYC after racing on Saturday of our district championship, the Elvstrom-Zellerbach regatta. A meeting room has been reserved. Please feel free to send items for the agenda, which I’ll post next week. The meeting start time is after racing and racers have made at least one pass through the food line, so a little unpredictable and probably between 4pm & 6pm.
If you are not sailing that day, come on over anyway. If you plan on sailing the one day of Half Moon Bay YC’s Commodore’s Cup and want to attend the class meeting, let me know and we’ll do our best to wait for you.
You need to be a Laser class member to attend the class meeting. You can sign up at the door but please sign up here now: http://laser.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=13&Itemid=64
Just wanted to let you know that Svendsens can support the Lasers by delivering replacement items to the STFYC Sunday morning prior to the first race. If you can advise the Laser group that by calling in an order to either myself at the Chandlery or the Alex on Saturday prior to close of business, we can take the credit card, pick the product and have it placed on the delivery truck for Sunday morning delivery.
Please have them call either 510.521.8454 (preferred), or Alex’s cell at 510.332.0470.
Please also advise them to have a credit card ready, we will pick the product, invoice it and delivery it to the STFYC front desk prior to 9am Sunday morning.
