Dear RG65 Skipper!

On June 24, 2018 our Class will be celebrating its 40th Aniversary!!!

It was the 24th of June, 1978, when Raul Landó, in Buenos Aires,Argentina, launched his "Lady Susan", free sailing, Braine steered
"G65" (without "R"!) at the Plaza Urquiza pond, but this time WITH R/C INSTALLED! This became the VERY FIRST RADIO "G65", that is, an "RG65". And Raul has Sail Number "1" since then. :-)

Forty years of uninterrupted class activity is an achievement worthwhile celebrating, and we PROPOSE to have/organize as many RG65 Events as possible on the Anniversary Day.

RG65-ICA INVITES you to organize on June 24th, 2018, Sail-Offs, informal Short Races and any Sailing Event you can imagine, maybe associated with a "Beginners Day" or any other celebration.

Please take pictures, post them on Facebook. And more important: film your Event! A YouTube Channel will be available for your posting it!

Yes: we know it is on a "short notice", but for a Celebration of this kind it is never to short! Our goal is to have a Fun Time, and (maybe) sing  Happy Birthday to you" and have a toast!!! And let the whole World know about it ...

Any questions? Need help? Mail your request to mailto:info@rg65

Let us make something that everyone can enjoy!
