Review of past activity;
We discussed how we got to this point in time, as well as any activity we could do to promote sailing on the South Shore. It was felt that having a fair, open and transparent rating system would make racing attractive and that would be a success for the SSYRA group.

This is the last Level regatta in this format, we offered to assist with any needs YYC would have for rating, although John Crawley usually provides excellent service to the regatta.
Next Meeting will be scheduled later this year based on need, results of Central Council and once the local handicappers are finalized (DYC and YYC) should there be a change.
