Subject: Update Information for The 65th Newport to Ensenada International
Attached find updated information regarding the 65th Newport to Ensenada
Yacht Race. Excitement continues to build for the 65th Newport to Ensenada
International Yacht Race due in large part to several important changes
made, many based on the feedback we have received from our racers.
Make sure you have your reservation made at the Coral Hotel for its room or
hospitality suites, as reservations are building. Also, if your club is
planning on hanging a club banner from a room balcony, note the maximum size
banner that can be hung is 82″ wide x 67″ tall.
Please post the enclosed details in your clubhouse and on your website. This
will allow your members an early chance to make their hotel and marina
reservations at the new NOSA headquarters in Mexico, Hotel Coral and Marina.
The NOTICE OF RACE and additional information is available at our website:
Let your racers know entries open December 1, 2011, with a substantial
discount for December entries:
o The entry fee is $125 through December 31st, 2011.
o The entry fee is $175 from January 1, 2012 through April 12, 2012.
o The entry fee is $225 for any entry received after April 12, 2012.
We have attached two recent articles that appeared in Sailing Anarchy
concerning changes that have occurred at NOSA.
Please share this with your membership.
