YRA Racing in 2017

A message from YRA Chairman Don Ahrens

The first race of the 2017 season is only 4 months away! Time to start making plans now. I’m really looking forward to the new season. I didn’t race as much as I wanted to in 2016 and hope to be out racing a lot more next year. I hope to see all the regulars out again, and am also hoping we can get some new boats out and maybe even convince some of the racers who haven’t raced in a year or so to come back out and join the fun. Please get in touch with me if you think there’s someone in particular who needs a little coaxing to get them back out racing, or if you know of a new boat that may be interested.

Thanks,
Don Ahrens
