Beer and Boats

Mark you calendars, save the dates for good times on and off the water.  This Friday, June 12th we would like to mix a little productive activity with our usual Friday night fun.  We’re going to sort through our pile of small boat rigging that is in the storage area next to the clubhouse.  No need to be a small boat rigging expert, just help bring out the parts so those that are the experts ( I use that term loosely of course. ) can put them together and find out how many complete boats we have.
On Saturday, June 13th, starting at 12:00 p.m. and thereafter we will celebrate with beverage and bites and taking turns trying out our fleet of small boats.
As always, BYOB and snacks to share.

beer can pursuit (race?)

*Announcing the Tuesday Evening “Beer Can” Race*

The origin of the “beer can” race is an informal mid week sail with a
minimum of testosterone and a mild blend of adrenaline. The tradition was
that you could follow the boat in front by the beer cans in the water. Of
course we no longer deep six beer cans but the nomenclature endures.
Our sail begins with an unregulated start at 1530 outside the entrance to
Landings Harbor. We will then sail down the river to Green 19
(approximately 2.4nm) returning to Landings harbor at 1700. Chili and beer
will be served on the porch immediately following.

The wrinkle is this: When the first boat turns the mark, ALL boats turn
and head for home. The purpose here is to have everyone finish about the
same time to partake of the above. OR you can turn around when you wish to
get to the beer and supper first.

The “race” is open to ALL sailboats and guests are invited and
ENCOURAGED. The purpose is to introduce anyone regardless of skill to the
fun of sailing. You do not have to be a member of anything to participate.
You can learn as much or as little as you like.

If you are one of the many who say they would like to sail, but do not
want to race….this is perfect for you because the only race is for the

Our opening event will take place on April 14 to be followed on April 28.
