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
Corinthian YC, Marblehead, has reserved all their rooms for the
national's participants on a first-come-first served basis. Contact
