Congratulations to Laura Slye, member of SSS 12 Newport on earning the right to
represent Rhode Island in the U.S. Junior Women's Singlehanded Championship
(Leiter Cup) in Seattle, Washington.
Unfortunately, we have a problem: In order to compete, Laura must provide a
Laser Radial for the races (August 8-14), but we have been unable to locate one
available in the Seattle area, and the cost of having her Laser shipped
cross-country is prohibitively expensive.
If anyone in the Washington area knows of a Laser Radial (in racing condition)
that Laura could borrow (or even rent?) for the week of the races, please
respond to "firstname.lastname@example.org."
I hate to see her miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for lack of a boat.
We are working on rather short notice here, since she needs to get her
registration in by the end of the week, so please let me know as quickly as
possible if you have any suggestions or possibilities.
My sincere thanks,
Skipper, SSS 12, Newport
