      2008 CR 914 National Championships

      September 26-28, 2008

      Hosted by Marblehead Model Yacht Club at Redd's Pond

      The Marblehead Model Yacht Club invites you to the 14th CR 914
      National Championship Regatta at historic Redd's Pond in Marblehead,
      MA. Redd's has been used to race model sailboats for more than 100

      Redd's Pond was named in memory of Wilmot Redd, a Marblehead fishwife
      living next to the pond, who was executed as part of the infamous
      Salem Witch Trials in the 1600s. The pond is a natural rain-fed basin
      in the stone ledge. Following catastrophic town fires, a dam raised
      the water level ~4 feet in the late 1800s to provide fire-fighting
      water. In the 1930s, the WPA built the pond wall designed expressly
      for racing model boats.

      The regatta will be limited to 36 participants. Entries will be
      accepted based on date the fee is received. Entry form and fee must
      be received before September 15. There can be no refunds after
      September 15.

      Corinthian YC, Marblehead, has reserved all their rooms for the
      national's participants on a first-come-first served basis. Contact
      David Titus, 781 631 0005, for reservations. Since Marblehead is a
      tourist destination, we recommend that you make other lodging
      reservations early.

      The Chamber of Commerce, 781 631 2868,
      (http://www.marbleheadchamber.org/index.asp), lists many Bed and
      Breakfasts near Redd's Pond.

      Directions to Redd's: If you use a service such as MapQuest, enter 67
      Pond St., Marblehead, as the destination.

      Racing Format will use HMS for the entire regatta. The first race
      will be seeded based on each boat's historical performance or
      randomly if there is no performance data. The first race will count
      in the final score and may be discarded.
