No time for a meeting at the Annapolis show - how about a skype meeting?

There are new skype services available that will support a meeting of the complete Board.

SA Forum has comments from Nicolas on the RG650 & below is a cross-posted vid of the new boat in La Rochelle.

Hi Chris,

If a series designer & builder sought to make them an option would that be acceptable to CM?
Would they need to carbon to be light enough & strong enough ?  In which case the series option will not exist.

Do you have any pics of new series refinements?

I had a call from the Vic-Maui race committee chair asking if there is a possibility that Minis might wish to enter the 2012 race?

This is an invitation - so any W coast Ministas looking for a DH race as an alternative to the Pac Cup or SHTP this may be worth considering.
I will include it in the list of 2012 Mini friendly races when that thread is started.

Hi Phil,

I checked the By-laws & see that we are required to have a bi-annual meeting - so no regular meeting until 2012:
a.   The Bi-Annual General Meeting of MCNA shall be held every other year at a regatta of the Class, or any other place judged by the Board to be most convenient to the majority of Members of MCNA, the precise date, time and place being at the Board’s discretion.

However, there is the possibility that a special general meeting can be called if 15 members request it.  So we could have an annual meeting if we wish.  Maybe it cou;ld be organized around the Annapolis Boat show or another event such as the Annapolis Bermuda race - I think there have been Mini entries for 3 races.

Is it possible 15 MCNA members might wish to attend the Annnapolis show this year? 
What are the dates? 
I am willing to sign as one of the 15 although I will not be able to attend. 
So there may be 13 others willing to request a meeting if somone is willing to try - perhaps the Board might give this some thought.

Here she is in sunny France.
Looking forward to seeing thousands at the 2011 Start.

Sorry this is cross posted on Sailing Anarchy - as I get lots more pics I will not post the same ones in both places.

Only 2 months to the 2011 AGM.
It would be good to have an update from the Executive on the Action Items agred on for 2010.
Will the 2011 meeting be in Newport again?

Several boats have new owners & have moved to new home ports.
We also have some new boats to add to the list - 2 Pogo 2's I think
So if you have sold, bought or built a Mini since our last update please let me know - post here or send me an e-mail

We would like to have the Classe Mini #, boat's name, design info, owner, year built for a new boat, skipper's name & home port

The gestation period for the RG650 has been longer than anyone had predicted or hoped for.
Still, she is alive & well in La Rochelle where she will be launched to the public at the start of the 2011 MT.

Amazingly she will be launched to the largest possible crowd of Mini enthusiasts in the world.
Pics of the boat on show will be posted very shortly
(Please forgive this cross post with SA - But we do Need to Keep this Forum Alive)

Here are 3 pics of the RG650 being prepared for loading into her container in Buenos Aires.

I ought to have posted this earlier - sorry for the delay.

Antidote has been sold & I am pleased to say she stayed in Canada.
I delivered her from Victoria to Quebec City in June.

It is interesting that we now have 4 Zeros in the N & E: St. Johns, Quebec City, Kingston & Toronto.
There are now 2 in San Francisco & 1 in Europe

Hi Chris,

That's great - thanks for doing this for all of us.
I think this will be an interesting addition to the new website.
Sometime in the future maybe we can do the same for the fleet list of Minis I have been keeping & the map that Christian has been maintaining

I do have a few changes to make to the original data & add new races, so please send me the log-in info by PM & I will bring it all up to date.

There are a couple of CA races - including the DH Farallones - that will be held this month & I will get those races listed too.

All skippers, please check your entries, submit any missing info to me asap.

CM qualifiers, I am sure I have missed some people, also I have some names, as they raced the MT, but I do not have the years in which they qualified.

B 1-2:
5 March 2011 - Skipper's Forum/Party 1530

Anyone going to be there for this meeting?

The questions about the B 1-2 times on this thread motivated me to look at all the races where Minis had entered & figure out what the Minis time records are.
I posted a first draft & Chris is developing a more accessible data base.

The B 1-2 Mini records are:
Leg 1 2007, SH Proto, Ryan Finn #252  86hrs, 31 mins
Leg 2 2007, DH Proto, Ryan Finn & Clark Thompson #252  121 hrs, 19 mins
Overall 2007, Proto,  Ryan Finn 207 hrs, 50 mins

Leg 1 2007, SH Series,  Sam Ausmuss  #175  126hrs, 59 mins
Leg 2 2007, DH Series,   Katie Ambach & Tara Thomas 132 hrs, 05mins
Overall 2007, Series,  Sam Ausmuss  271 hrs, 19 mins
