OK, I know it's coming late this year, but I missed having my PDRacer
calendar on my desk when 2013 rolled in. I wasn't going to do a calendar
this year because I didn't get much response to my request for photos,
but it just didn't seem right not supporting this little boat and their
World championship events that I enjoy so much. After all, I'm
finishing up my sixth build in the last seven or eight months if you
count mailable kits, boatbuilding with families and apprentice
boatbuilders, and replacement boats for myself and my son. Seeing as how
I had to use mostly my own photos, I changed the theme somewhat to
"Getting Your Feet Wet" with an appropriate cover photo of Dr. Ken
Sherwood wading out to push off his young daughter Ceci in the Z-PDR
that I gifted to her at this year's Worlds, courtesy of my son.
There's an expanded list of events on this year's calendar that will
interest most small boat sailors. I've scoured the existing calendars
and talked to numerous event planners to get dates and places across the
US. And, of course, the PDRacer Worlds are in Canada this year,
appropriately on Canada Day.
I felt guilty because this year's calendar was too late for Christmas,
so the prices are reduced 25% from last year; but c'mon, guys and gals,
there aren't really THAT many small boat events in January. (I shouldn't
say that. There is a big hatch planned in Cortez, FL starting on the
12th sponsored by the Maritime Museum of Florida.) Anyhow, if you want
to start planning early for this year's biggest and best events, or if
you just miss your PDRacer desk calendar, or if you like supporting a
boat that brings lots of novices into boatbuilding and sailing, go to
the PolySail International Product Page at
and scroll down to order. As always, all profits beyond expenses go to
support the PDRacer web site and the host of the PDRacer Worlds.
Thanks in advance for your continuing support.
