Coming to Annapolis for NOOD this weekend? If so, stop in and see us. APS will be extending its store hours this week for the regatta. Friday we will open early, 8:00am – 6:00pm and Saturday, 8:00am – noon. Come by the store this weekend, APS has the best selection of One Design parts in the world.
Some of our APS staff will be racing in the Sperry Top-Sider Nood Regatta too so keep an eye out for these guys on the racecourse. Warren Richter, from customer service, and James Mckenna- Product/ Storefront manager, will be attempting to improve on last year’s 8th place on J22- Tangler. Jarrett Hering, from our rigging department will be sailing on a J24 sail # 5350 also known as Millennium Falcon, which happens to be way faster than George Lucas’s version…or so he claims. Rob Beach won’t be sailing this year, he’s recovering from a hack job courtesy of his dermatologist and too much sun but, he reminds you wear your sunblock and steer clear of his fishing lines as he’s likely to be out trying to reel in the big one.
Good luck to those of you sailing this weekend and check back for a recap of the regatta next week.
Ps. A final word to wise, don’t get between Warren and the beer truck at the tent party and don’t forget to buy us drinks at the Cougarfish.
Update: The race marks we’re donating to AYC have just arrived and here is Kyle logo-ing them up to be used for the regatta. I wonder how many people are going to hit them this weekend?!
