Some of our experienced sailors have put together a last-minute fun event for you to bring your questions about sailing, rigging, safety, right-of-way, capsizing and racing. All members and guests are welcome to attend. The program will start 10:30 am and lunch will be served.
Sail to the Island and other sailing games. We will be assembled and departing the beach around 1:00 pm, wind permitting.
From our Commodore...
Wow! What was that temperature last night? 58 degrees and it's August. Yes the season has reached that point, but remember there is plenty of good sailing to do between now and November. The water is still warm and the wind gets pretty steady. So let's make it down to the club to enjoy both the events and the sailing. Check the calendar for what's going on. Labor Day weekend is around the corner.
Speaking of events we have had some good one's so far. We had a well run Statue Race and Anniversary Party going on over 4th of July w/e. Kudos to both Scott R and Mark B for running those activities. The following w/e, a big thanks to Greg R for running the North American Championships which we hosted for the Hobie 14's, Waves and the Hobie 16 UTES. Some of our own members did well in these events. Thanks to all who showed up and helped out which included a ride on the Sea Streak to go up the East River for a quick tour outside Manhattan, 80 people went. After that we went through some fleet races and fun events. Hope to see more of you at the club taking advantage of what we offer. The officers will assure you of a good time. Let's give a big thanks to Mark B who stepped up and took care of the wheels which were in need of some repair, seven sets are available to use by the club.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be attending to some of the needs of the club which include providing cover over the grill and basic everyday maintenance. Also coming up will be nomination time for the officers and Board of Directors for next year. If you are interested please contact myself or the nominating committee which include Donna Gugger, Isaac Hal (which we hope for a speedy recovery from his accident), Aaron Loichle, and Gary Payne. Again a big thanks to all the officers for their tremendous effort to keep the club moving forward and the Board of Directors.
Keeping this short and sweet, check out the calendar, the rest of the newsletter, here's to much wind and great weather. Vic Simon
