2017 Lotsa Lasers




Harbor Island Yacht Club invites you to sail in the forty-second  annual Lotsa Lasers Regatta on Old Hickory Lake September 23-24, 2017.  We plan short-course races following three-minute starting sequences governed by the rules as defined in The Racing Rules of Sailing with changes made to RRS 29.1 (Individual Recalls will be hailed), A2 (Scoring to exclude a “throw out” if six or more races are completed) and 67 with respect to 42 (Propulsion will result in an excludable disqualification) as detailed in the sailing instructions.  These may be reviewed at the website, www.hiyc.org. along with directions and weather.  Breakfast and lunches will be provided and there will be a lasagna dinner Saturday night. And there will be awards...for the top three juniors (age 17 and under) and for the top “new junior” (sailing in a district Laser regatta for the first time)...for the first lady...apprentice master (35-44), master (45-54), grand master (55-64), great grand master (65 and over), featherweight (under 60 kg), Clydesdale (over 80 kg)...and for the top four finishers overall.  All will be eligible for the dreaded MOP (middle of the pack) and for the highly prized Bookend Award (presented to the skipper who starts in every race and finishes with the highest point total).  Radials will compete as a separate class for “top three” awards.


The registration fee will be $35 which includes lunches Saturday and Sunday, dinner Saturday night and breakfast Sunday morning. Juniors will also receive a $10 discount.  Saturday only sailors’ fee is $20.  Sunday only sailors’ fee is $15.


Please call Bruce Richards at (615) 383-8749 (rich4302@comcast.net ) if you have any questions or if we can assist you with your planning.  If you plan to arrive Friday night, you will need to call to obtain the combination to the gate across the causeway.  If you would like to use one of HIYC’s boats to sail in this event, contact Greg Theriot (615) 578-3084 (theriotgreg@hotmail.com)
