Spring 2012 Governor's Meeting
April 5, 2012
The question of electric winches was discussed. It was pointed out that this is a Racing Rule 52 concern, not that of PHRF NE. Mass Bay will look into putting an exception to RRS 52 in their general sailing instructions.
On line race entry was discussed along with a demostration of the Mass Bay system. The question of Mass Bay access to the PHRFNE database was discussed. It would need assuraces that the email information would not be used..
In an effort to get Buzzard's Boats to attend the Championship and to get Mass Bay boats to attend the Buzzard's Bay Regatta, it was suggested a trophy for the best performance in both events. This will be looked in to.
The Marblehead fleet will look into arranging moorings beginning the week before the Championship so that boats would not have to be brought up mid week. Of course this does not apply to the fleets in the Marbelehad area.
