SSC Firefly #2 This Saturday Night -- 7/28/2012

It is that time again. Firefly time! The event is scheduled for this coming Saturday, July 28th. This will be the second and last running of the event for 2012. We will again run the event in conjunction with Barefoot Sailing Club as they run their Moonlight Scrambler race, with SSC hosting. 

The Skipper's Meeting will be held in the normal SSC location, in the Aqualand gravel parking lot, near "ZA" Dock and the bathhouse (not the Ship's Store). The meeting will begin at 1800, that's 6:00 P.M. for all you silly villains. 

We are all competing for the same trophy. So, as with the last Firefly, Racer Cruisers will only add 15 seconds to their base Handicap rating, instead of the normal 30. Don't feel discouraged RC fleet, IT COULD HAPPEN! 

Base-time for the start will be 2000 (do the math), and you can expect to be out there for a while. It should be a nice night for a race, so rest up, ice down the Red Bull and the Monster drinks, and prepare to put some miles under your keel.
