Dear Lido 14 Assn. Member,

Bulletin #7 contains several important notices about the W.D. Schock Memorial Regatta this March 3rd and 4th.

The following memo was issued by W.D. Schock concerning boat launching at the W.D. Schock Memorial Regatta.

"Due to the construction work being done to the boat yard at the Newport
Harbor Yacht Club launching for Lido 14's requiring a hoist will be done at
the Lido Island boat garden at the corner of Via Genoa and Via Lido Soud on
Lido Island.

On behalf of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club I apologize for the
inconvenience but assure you that it will in no way affect the race
management or social activities.

Thanks and we're all looking forward to seeing you at the regatta.

Co-Race Chairman

The Assn. recommends that you complete your registration/check in at Newport Harbor Yacht club first, install hull numbers (if provided), etc. and then proceed to Lido Island to launch your boat (a map will be provided at NHYC) prior to the competitors meeting.

The competitors meeting for inside (i.e. dinghy) courses is scheduled for 1100 hours on Saturday, the first warning is scheduled for 1200 hours (noon).

The Lido Island launching facility is about 7 minutes away by car and is about 10 to 15 minutes away by sail. Parking at the facility is on-street. If you have any questions about the Lido Island facility, contact Bob Yates at or (949) 673-3557.

The Assn. is working with W.D. Schock Memorial staff to provide shore boat transportation between Lido Island and Newport Harbor YC. We are also trying to have an additional competitors meeting on Lido Island to alleviate the rush to get into the water in order to get to the regularly scheduled meeting at NHYC and then get back to Lido Island. Please stay tuned for further details on these matters.

Due to the change in launching arrangements, the Lido 14 clinic scheduled for Friday March 2nd at Newport Harbor YC will be on shore (i.e. "dry"). The clinic is scheduled for 2:00 P.M. on Friday and will cover a wide range of topics - rigging, tuning, boat handling, tactics, etc. The precise location of the clinic (i.e. outside the club v.s. inside the club) will depend on turnout and weather conditions.
Lastly, remember to have your entry postmarked before February 25th to avoid paying the late registration fee. Entry forms are available on the Newport Harbor YC ( and Lido 14 Class Assn. web pages (
