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.

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.

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023
Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Christmas to Christmas Island 2023
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2023 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! It also marks the conclusion of our prestigious Ocean Race Championship 2023. Please have fun! Fair winds!
