Hobie Fleet has cancelled their participation in this event due to the severe weather forecast. Just a quick reminder that local Hobie Fleet 95 has invited NWMA members to participate in their Round Mercer Island Race.  This is happening on April 7th and will be out of the Stan Sayer Pit on Lake Washington.  This is a casual race and no official PHRF ratings are required.  "Run what you brung"... they promised that they would adjust course(s) if necessary.  There is a party afterwards.Here is a link to the Notice of Race:

“Round Mercer Island @ Stan Sayer Pits  3808 Lake Washington Blvd S

Apr 7 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Cost:  $10 (To cover chase boat and after race munchies)

10 a.m. Registration    11 a.m. Skipper’s meeting  Noon First start


Some of the Weta folks will be there... It would be great if other boats not participating in the Blakely Rock race decided to do this one!  Also be sure you know your mast height relative to the bridge on the east channel of Mercer Island.  There has been talk that for those unable to go around that they race to the bridge and then reverse course back to the finish.
