beer/wine/nachos. Friday evening the Lido 14 Governing Board will hold
their fall meeting at SFYC. All members are welcome to attend the meeting.
Note that the Blue Angels will be putting on an air show overhead on

Keep a lookout at the SFYC web page (www.sfyc.org)) for Notice of Race and
Entry Forms. P.S. The racing is on Richardson Bay, which is ideal for Lido
**** The 2001 Senior Class Championships will be held July 16th, 17th, and
18th at Huntington Lake, CA. Fleet 1 - Newport Harbor will be hosting the
event. Further details on lodging, etc. will be published in the coming
months. If you have any questions, please forward them to John Papadopoulos
**** The Lido 14 Class Association is seeking bids for the 2001 Western
Regional Championships (WRC). The WRC is intended to counterbalance the Sr.
Class Championships so that Class members that cannot attend the Class
Championships due to distance and time constraints can attend a more "local"
event with high caliber sailing. Given that the 2001 Class Championship
Regatta is somewhat centerally located amongst the West Coast Lido 14
fleets, bids venues other than Central California are encouraged. Bids
should include: proposed dates, brief description of the racing venue,
lodging, meals, boat storage, probable weather, etc. Note that it is
appropriate to host the WRC in conjunction with an established regatta, as
was the case in the 1999 and 2000 running of the event. Please forward all
WRC bids to Lido 14 Class Vice President at the Lido 14 P.O. box address
**** Pauline Colombo has retired as the BowWave editor. The Class
Association is making alternate arrangements to publish the BowWave. The
October BowWave remains on schedule. For the time being, please submit all
articles to John Papadopoulos. Reports on fleet activity, tall tales, good
photographs, etc. are desired. If possible, please submit the text of your
articles via email to email@example.com and your photographs by US mail
20242 Spruce Avenue
Newport Beach, CA 92660
The submission deadline for the October issue is September 10th.

address, effective immediately. You can now reach her at
**** A number of fleets have not submitted dues for the 2000/2001 membership
year which began at the conclusion of the Class Championships several weeks
ago. Please make a point of forwarding dues along with information on each
member (name, spouse name, street address, phone #, email address, boat

can, send your roster in a Microsoft Word or Excel document attached to your
email. If you cannot support those document types, plain text separated by
commas or tabs is fine too.
