Between Warren Wilson, James Lockhart, Mike Wilson (no relation to Warren) and myself we have been working on a locatin for a southern regatta. For now the best location I think we have is in Jacksonville at the ORCAS new lake. The reasons are several, one is access to all sides of the lake, it's not more than ten feet deep and it's a new lake (less than threeyears old or so) and not very weedy and not much debris on the bottom.
There is a shelter, a public restroom, parking is close and the lake is not too big or too small. Also there are resturants and such within about five miles drive. I think there is a hotel a little farther.

James is looking in Orlando and I hope he finds something along the lines of Carmel but for right now JAX is possibly the best we have.

If those interested would e-mail me their e-mail address and some info on their model I will compile a complete list for the group. It looks like there are enough for a good start. Send your info to

For now try to make the Oct regatta with the ORCAS (my surface buddies) It will be an all day event and should be fun.

Sorry, I don't check the board as frequently as I should. I sent you a copy of my Robbe disk and you should have it by now. It does not say anything about the Tower. I had to get a dremel tool and a bit that would grind away the inside of the tower. the tower is an accurate armor tower and it is heavy as it comes from the factory. Carve out and grind away every possible part inside of the tower.
