Dieball Sails Offering 20% Discount on Sails Threw December 10

Gotta love competition. Dieball Sails is offering Special Pricing, too. You can grab a 20% discount starting immediately. This special runs through December 10, 2013. They tell me, "There are no hoops to jump through or minimums to activate this special pricing."

Save 20% on Sails – Must Order by November 30

Brian Hayes from North Sails has arranged a 20% OFF deal if we can get together a fleet sails order by November 30 (Saturday).  He's counting Wilmington and Charleston as the same fleet.  He already sold enough sails at the Wild Oyster that he only needs 7 more orders to get the 20% discount.  If you're interetsed please file out the North Sails One Design Order Form - lightning (click link to download form) and talk to Brian.  I believe he needs both the order form and payment by Saturday.

Boathouse to be Open Friday Night

The Carolina YC will be opening up the boathouse — the building closest to the water and the hoist — for drinks on Friday Night.  Non-members can pay by cash; members can charge to their accounts.  Credit cards aren't accepted — maybe next year.

We'll also have beer in the boatyard so you can relax after Greg Fisher's seminar.

Local Housing Supply Used Up; Here Are Some Other Options

We were able to help several crews with housing at several local sailors homes, but the demand has outstripped the demand at this point.  We would still love to have you at the Wild Oyster Regatta.  In addition to the hotels listed in the NOR, the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau has links to lots of other travel accomodations.  They list campgrounds, if you're on a limited budget.

They also have great suggestions for things to do and see.
