The weekends regatta will be held on Lake Monona in Madison, Wi. Launch site will be at the Olin Park 1156 Olin-Turville Ct., Madison Wi. Same place as last years NA’s, on the SW corner of the lake.

Dan Hearn and Deb have been working with the City Parks Dept for a bulk parking pass to avoid parking costs to the racer. More info by Thursday or Friday.
The ramp is suitable for trailers to back right on 12 inches of ice. Be careful of the small stream to the left side.
A small heave is located about 100 yards from the launch so be careful in crossing. We expect to mark the best crossing area with orange cones on Friday. No other hazards noted.
The ice is very nice black hard ice with zero snow cover, rated a 7-8 by a ranked sailor today.
