Please see attached for the race results from the SPSA Series 4 race that took place this past Saturday. It was a fun day on the water, followed by our annual Christmas potluck/gift exchange that saw everybody go home with some interesting presents!

Congrats to Tack Tick for winning in the Spinnaker division, and to Freelance for winning the Cruising division!
Our next race is the New Years Day Fun Pursuit Race on January 1st @ 11:00AM, and the next Series race is Saturday January 20th @ 11:00am. We hope to see you all out there!

SPSA Christmas Potluck


In addition to the Series Race this Saturday at 11:00, we will be gathering at the Sailing Center afterwards (roughly 3:00pm) for a potluck and white elephant gift exchange. Everybody is invited, even if you are not sailing on Saturday! For anyone bringing food, we will have some electrical outlets setup for crockpots at the Sailing Center, if you wish you drop your food off prior to the race.
Lastly, if anyone is still looking for crew, or a boat to sail with this Saturday, please contact Dan Dawson (downwindan@gmail.com). 
Thanks & looking forward to seeing everybody this Saturday!

SPSA Moonlight Cruise Invitation – Friday, December 1st @ 5:30 PM

After the success of the sunset sail we organized a few weeks ago, we wanted to invite everybody out again on Friday, December 1st for a “Moonlight Cruise”. The plan is to meet at the Sailing Center by 5:30PM, where we will match everybody up with boats. This is a great way for non-boat owners to get out on the water!

Please RSVP by email to Dan Dawson (downwindan@gmail.com) to confirm your attendance, and we look forward to seeing everybody out for a fun evening on Tamp Bay!

**Please see attached map for available parking near the Sailing Center**

SPSA Race Results + Christmas Potluck/Gift Exchange

Thanks to everybody for coming out this past Saturday for the SPSA Series Race! The results are now posted online here: (http://spsa.us/racing/spsa-series/results/). Congrats to Tack Tick for winning in the Spinnaker fleet, and to Hula Girl for winning in Cruising! Also, a big thanks to Robert and Teresa for performing race committee duties.

We are looking forward to seeing everybody out for our next Series race on Saturday December 9th. We will be having a Christmas potluck/gift exchange at the sailing center immediately following the race, around 3:00. Please bring some food and a small gift if you wish to participate!

Lastly, if anyone is in need of crew for the next race, please reach out to Dan Dawson (downwindan@gmail.com), who is maintaining a crew list for SPSA.
