WE ARE CONFIRMED for the Newport Unlimited August 22-23. Steve Parks will be issuing Notice of Race and other details soon. We are expecting about 8-12 NEMA boats; there may also be a class of F-18s.
We understand that the docks at Ft. Adams will be available that weekend, make your reservation soon.
Watch for a more formal announcement but save the weekend on your calendar and start making plans.
PLEASE: Skippers and their crew are responsible for safe sailing. NEMA is not responsible for your compliance with CDC and state guidelines on health safety. Be safe on board, wear life jackets. WEAR MASKS on land and at docks when approaching others.
SAFE SAILING: There are no special COVID rules for the number of sails or the number of crew. But if you are sailing shorthanded for health reasons (or for any reason), be especially careful about crossing traffic. Give each other plenty of room.
