Sailistice – June 18, 2016

Hey Sailors!

Friendly reminder that the Summer Sailstice is this Saturday, June 18.  See my earlier email below for details.  We’d like to get as many sailors out there as possible, so if you have a boat or want to crew please let me know.  I know we have some extra space on the Belafonte!  See you on the water.

Hello Chatham Sailors!
The summer solstice is fast approaching and we’d like to use up all that glorious sunshine for a Summer Sailstice on Saturday, June 18!  The initial plan is to leave in the morning and sail out and around the Tybee Roads marker or circumnavigate Wassaw Island.  Both options will provide us with a long day on the water, but the tide is in our favor with high tide just before 8 am.  All of this is subject to the wind and weather and a final decision will be made in the days before the sail.  However, the good times are guaranteed!
I’d like to see as many club members out there as possible, both those with or without boats.  For all of those with boats, lets try and fill them up with all of the willing and able crew we have!  If you are planning to join us or are interested in crewing on another boat let me know.

Fun Events at CSC

Hi everybody,

    This is Charlotte Dixon, the new outreach person! At last week’s sundowner  we cooked up the fun idea of a Halloween EVE party onFriday October 30th, at the usual sundowner time of 7 p.m. So put on your favorite costume ( or none), bring a decoration for the clubhouse and of course something to eat! Can we say CANDY? Best costumes will have significant recognition( more candy?)
Also a heads up, that we will be having our 3rd annual Thanksgiving dinner at the Clubhouse this year! More to follow on that!
   Should you need to email me, my email is cdixon604@aol.com.

SYC PHRF “WIC” Wednesday Evening Summer Sailing Series

CSC Sailors —
It comes with great excitement and the passion for our sport to forward along this email.  In conjunction with Billy Bremer and Gebel Sesse, we have worked hard to put together yet another local PHRF racing series which will be hosted by the Savannah Yacht Club (SYC).  See below email and attached NOR.  In short, this will be a summer season 10 race series every Wednesday evening starting next Wednesday, June 17 to Wednesday, August 19 and will be in Pursuit format.  We will start each race at 6pm sharp from SYC and hope to be done by or before8pm and retreat to SYC’s Sail Loft for an informal cocktail reception after each race.  All attendees will be sponsored by a SYC member to set up individual payment details for the food and beverage offerings.  For registration purposes, we have set everything up through Regatta Network.  Captains, please follow the below link to download the Sailing Instructions and register your boats.

 

Again, none of this would not have happened if our sailing community did not come together.  I’m encouraged and feel equally responsible for bringing back PHRF racing to Savannah.  See you all on the water…next Wednesdayevening.
Onward and Upward,
Amar
