Better late than never. A nice little video of the Open 6.50 “Chupacabra” making some swift progress down the coast of California in the Outlaw Regatta back in September of 2009 (original article)
For many of us winter is just around the corner and the 2009 sailing season will soon become a distant memory. Of course for others the season never ends. Here in Southern California we are lucky enough to be able to sail year around. However, we’re not selfish and we want to share some of that season with you. Open Sailing is offering a special Winter Delivery Program. All you have to do is place an order for your new Open 5.70 before the end of 2009 and you’ll get the following:
Come Spring we can arrange to have your boat shipped to your home sailing venue in time for the start of your local sailing season. By that time you’ll have everything dialed in and your boat handling skills will give you edge over the other sailors coming out of a sailing free winter.
For more information about the Winter Delivery Program including all terms & conditions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
On Saturday October 17th Redondo Beach Yacht Club hosted the Sixth Annual Frank Guernsey Single-Handed Challenge Race. It’s always been a tradition to do this race. Designed to be raced single handed the course is random leg and each leg is long giving the short handed boats plenty of time to change sails. It’s also a great race for the Open boats as there are often some reaching legs which are fast and fun.
