Regatta organisers everywhere have the same problem - getting people to sign on. They say they're going to, they are going to, and eventually do. But not before there has been a great deal of tearing of hair. It's not just that they are after your money, chaps, it's more a case wanting to know who is competing so that they can organise boats into divisions, instead of doing it all in a lather, five minutes before the first warning signal.
We received a message from the people at Top of the Gulf a couple of days ago: "Many of out anticipated local entries have not yet signed up for the Top of the Gulf. To help us with planning, your entry should be made without delay. Payment can be made on line via the website, or to the Simpson Office (Khun Ann), or at registration, but we do need your entry details so we can complete preliminary classes and confirm social and catering arrangements."
Heck, they can't make it any easier, can they? So come on, fellers, do the paperwork. And then get ready for another first class regatta out of Ocean Marina.
