It is time to put together the Northeast Circuit of regattas for next season. Lets plan, as this past year, for five or six events spread evenly in time from early May to mid October. There will be a conference call on next Tuesday, October 11th at 3 PM EDT. Dialing instructions: Call 866 330-1200 and enter 8080#. Have your suggestions ready for discussion. Post your ideas,and preferences here.

I think, like others have said, that it's a great idea to get a NOOD in the circuit for next year. I also like the idea of making the Annapolis NOOD the east coast championship next year. That would accomplish the NOOD goal as well as support the growing Annapolis fleet and it would also let Brian and Kristen keep some miles off the truck<IMG SRC="http://j80.org/discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

My personal suggestion for a schedule is thus:

May ? - ?: Annapolis NOOD (East Coast Champs)
June 3 & 4: Sag Harbor
July 8 - 15: Worlds (Not a NE Circuit Stop)
July 29 & 30: Marblehead NOOD
Aug 12 & 13: Blue Water Regatta
Sept 8, 9 & 10: NAs (aka J-Jamboree)
Sept 23 & 24: Mallets Bay

I've exchanged the Blue Water Regatta for the Red Grant:
1) Due to the conflict with the Worlds (for those people who plan on going)
2)To keep a regatta in NJ

I further exchanged the Marblehead NOOD for Buzzards Bay:
1) Because I live there
2) It's another NOOD
3) Last year was the first year there were NOT J/80s there since its inception in 1998
4) To not have 2 NE stops on back-to-back weekends(BBR would have been the weekend before the Blue Water Regatta).

Good work Jason. I am certainly open to other suggestions, but this looks good to go from my perspective.
