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

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

listed above.


**** 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 and your photographs by US mail

year which began at the conclusion of the Class Championships several weeks
