      Hi Thistle Nuts,

      Many have asked about our Mid Winter Regattas. We just want to let you know we are still in a holding pattern. Stay tuned.

      Are we still in a holding pattern for 2021 MWE? I ask, because the SPYC website says is has been cancelled.

      Attention boat racing fans!
      Sorry to say, we’re not going to race Thistles yet.
      The TCA Executive Committee along with regatta leadership at St. Pete YC, Mission Bay YC, and Florida YC have come to the same conclusion. We have decided not to hold Midwinters West, Midwinters East, or The Orange Peel regattas in 2021. These regattas are cancelled.
      The pandemic is just too much. Because of that it would not be appropriate for us to have a gathering and that’s at least half the fun. The constraints would be considerable. Travel to the events, hotels or housing, getting meals away from home, – it is too much to risk. The whole activity poses risks to the would be sailors and to the folks we encounter along the way.
      As we all know by now, this is a time to take refuge from the storm so we can sail another day.
      We hope you will have a safe holiday and a happy new year. Maybe by April we can get back to Thistle sailing. We’re really going to have a new appreciation for that, won’t we?
      Best Wishes to All,
      Tom Hubbell, Thistle Class President
