Board » General Discussion » IRL Race in Newport RI - 12 Meter Charter

Page: Previous 1 2

My schedule is fairly open.
Here's an update on the 12 Meter Charter...

You don't get anything if you don't ask. I asked for a better rate than the $175 & $195 pp they originally offered. I gave them a target of $150 pp. Their response was that in order to do that we'd have to look at their slower periods. or go down to a 2 hr cruise.

Their fringe periods are May & October which don't really fit in with our needs, but she also offered the week of July 4th which apparently is a relatively slow period for charters.... this is what she offered:

June 30-July 4).
If you would consider chartering sometime then, I would offer the following rates:
3 hour $1750 inclusive of crew or $150 per person with 12 on board.
4 hour $1950 inclusive of crew or $162.50 per person with 12 on board.

My suggestion then would be to have the event on Monday 30 June or Tuesday 1 July.

This fits in perfectly for me. Count me IN.!!!

sounds like a plan...count me IN

I know what I'm getting for christmas.. :)
Either of those dates should work for me.
I hadn't seen this discussion until Tyger pointed me to it. We have America 2 and Lionheart (87 and 80 campaigns respectively) based in Greenwich, Western Long Island Sound. I will be seeing one of the guys involved with running the program for these boats this Saturday and will make some more inquiries. I know they do match racing when they can fill the boats. Details to follow. Photo of the boats attached.

Hi Jlinc58,

Unfortunately I am not going to be able to participate. Hope all of you have a wonderful sailing.

All the best,

I can make it work, count me in. Those showing up early can come do some practice sailing on the real Hirilonde. She will be moored in Wickford this summer.

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
