First we want to thank North Sails for their sponsorship of the Long Beach Harbor Series.  Without their support the LBHS would not have been the success it was.

Second, we want to thank all of the race committee volunteers from the four Clubs (Little Ships Fleet Yacht Club, Navy Yacht Club of Long Beach, Shoreline Yacht Club and USPS District 13) for giving of their time so that the racers could go out and compete.

Lastly but most importantly we want to thank the racers.  You commit the time, energy and resources to come out and compete - without you, the contributions of the rest of us would be meaningless.

Thanks for a great season of racing.  Watch this space in the next couple of weeks for the 2014 calendar.
