04/23/2012; National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame Needs your help.
National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame is doing a really interesting project with land based OPTIs. If you have an old beginner OPTI this is a great option for donation.
The National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame is mentoring a group of Anne Arundel County Public School STEM students and Center for Applied Technology students to construct an Optimist Land Cruiser fashioned after a similar El Toro Land Cruiser built in Alameda, CA. The purpose is to take "first Opti" experiences TO elementary school students along with lessons on the math and science of sailing. Cradle construction is underway but we still need TWO donated old Optis. We need functioning rigs and tillers but the hulls can be old and don't need to float as long as the hull repairs needed are not extreme! Rudders are optional as they will be cut shorter on the Land Cruiser. We can secure newer sails if necessary and can seek replacement parts as needed. We welcome your offers and will keep donors apprised of the land cruiser construction and program developments.
Feel free to contact Susan directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any follow up.

Regarding the issue with the Opti scoring at the Bay Open Junior Olympics, the overall results were always correct. However, using Javascore we got the default scoring wrong when we sorted the Red, White, and Blue Fleets. Once we put it into the Regatta Network, it correctly scored the three fleets using USODA requirements. This changed four places within the three fleets. Each of those competitors has been contacted and the competitors needing an upgraded trophy will receive it. All results are now posted on Regatta Network and the HYC website. Again, overall results were never an issue and needed no adjustment.
Fleet Captain, Hampton Yacht Club
