just a quick update about the U.S. RG-65 SAILING CLUB - which has been formed as a US Club, but with representative “chapters” in all but one AMYA Region - so far. We are now in the process of developing our Class Owners Association constitution and bylaws, will use International Rules with only a couple of additions to make life easier here in the U.S. In the meantime, I am posting our “official” welcome and urge readers if interested in building small (25 inch) development class boats - to give as a “look”.
Dick welcome to the AMYA family of clubs. I have assigned club #269 to the RG-65 Sailing Club and I am showing you in Region 4 because that is where the club contact is located. I have forwarded your club information to the other folks who manage the AMYA data bases for a complete update. Your listing should show up on the web site in a few days.
Are you coming to the National championship final event in late november here in Chile, Christian Roessner told me that Samuel Ruiz is coming. I will be going from Puerto Montt, (1000 kms. south!!) and trying to move with me some other 5 skeepers.
I could not attend the Sudamerican in Lobos, but the next year I will not loose the chance…
I would like to know your thoughts about so many rg 65 designs, so different from each other. Wide transoms or narrow hulls, what do you like the most???
Yes Martin, I´m very, very, very satisfied.
You know, in 1998 there were only ±60 boats in this class, all and only in Argentina. Today 2008, in 10 years, + 1100 boats in, let say, 15 countries?
