Two more SPSA items


Hey Sailor,


As if my previous email blast was not enough, here are two more items that I failed to include.  For the Latin scholars, mea  culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

  • January 11th, 2020.  Full Moon Regatta.  This obviously is a night time fun race under a full moon.  Watch for additional details as the date approaches.

  • This pasted Sunday, November 10th, SPSA members Jack O’Connell, Charles Archer and Richard Boler hosted three autistic sailors and their coaches for a day out on the bay.  Our new sailing friends regularly sail small boats but had never been out on a big boat. They were ecstatic. Thanks to Jack, Charles and Richard and their crews for a job well done.  It was a great day for all involved.  You can expect this event to happen again.

Let’s Go Sailing!

Upcoming SPSA Events


Hey Sailor,

Mark your calendars. Here’s your listing of SPSA events.  

  • November 22 – 23 Overnight Cruise.  A leisurely cruise to a nearby anchorage.  This was originally scheduled for October.  What we didn’t plan for was bad weather.  Contact coordinator Robert to get on the email distribution list. robert@kryger.biz

  • December 3 Board Meeting.  6:30 at the sailing Center.  All are welcome to attend.  Along with other less important topics we will be discussing starting a Sonar Class racing series.  Please consider attending to find out more about your sailing club and get involved.  (PS:  A little bit of food is involved.)  Please drop our Commodore Robert Hopkins a note if you plan to attend.  Commodore@SPSA.us 


  • December 7th Series Races 7 & 8.   11 AM Start.  Post race gathering at Courigans.  Please note the Christmas Party originally scheduled has been rebranded and pushed to January 1st.

  • January 1st New Years Day Pursuit Race.  2 PM Start.  Start the new decade right by getting out on the Bay.  Don’t miss the next dot point.

  • January 1st Post Race Party and White Elephant gift exchange.  If racing at 2 PM is a bit early considering all your New Years Eve partying, take your pain killers and crawl out of bed in time for the White Elephant event at 4.  It’s a hoot.  Bring that gift someone else needs – wrapped.  4 PMish at the sailing Center (tentative).  We are awaiting a open or closed Sailing Center decision.  Watch for an update.

  • January 18th  Series Races 9 & 10. 11 AM start.  Post race chili cook-off planned.

Attention Sailors,
