SPSA Renewal


Hey Sailor,

It’s membership renewal time.  The calendar year for the St Petersburg Sailing Association runs from July 1st through June 30th.  Although we don’t go after the procrastinators until August, there’s nothing stopping you from renewing today.  It’s just $49 for another year.

Renewal is easy.
  
1)  Go to the SPSA Web Page.    http://spsa.us/
2)  Under the MEMBERSHIP tab, select LOGON.
3)  Once logged on, click the MY PROILE tab.
4)  Under the Membership Type line, click the RENEWAL BUTTON.

Let’s Go Sailing.

Full Moon Pursuit Race Saturday




Hey Sailor,

This Saturday, May 14th, we will have a Full Moon Pursuit Race, with the first boat starting at 8 PM.  The moon will already be up at race time and near full, 82.4%.  Close enough.   The real full moon is May 18th but we are not picky.  Afterwards we will gather at Courigans to recount our evening and award trophies.  Let Joe know you will be racing (he needs your boat information) so we can have our course and your start time posted by 7 PM in the classroom at the Sailing Center.

Here’s the link to Joe Toth.      mailto:Race.Committee.Chair@spsa.us

Couples Regatta and other stuff


Hello Sailors,

Here’s your SPSA May Events and other information:

1)  Couples Regatta, May 11th.  This is a pursuit start race with the least speedy sailing vessel starting at 2 PM.  A dinner worthy of your $20 entry fee will be served afterward in the sailing center. Start times and course will be posted no later than noon.  To register go to the SPSA web site, click the REGATTAS tab and then select Couples Regatta.    Or just click this link.  http://spsa.us/racing/regattas/   Need a boat?  3 Sailing Center Sonars are still available – contact the Sailing Center.  

2)  With the exception of a seminar or currently unscheduled sunset cruise, the SPSA Sailing Season goes semi-dormant in the hot months.  Notice of the exceptions will hit your email box as will other announcements – like renew your membership.  Stay tuned.  All is not lost however to get your sailing fix.  See #3 below.

3)  The SPYC Twilight Series is turning out the area sailors.  Last night 16 boats enjoyed the beautiful weather and gentle breeze.  Afterwards a good crowd showed up for the “racers one free drink” benefit at the SPYC Tiki bar. This happens every Friday night through August.  Your St Petersburg Sailing Association has been placing sailors, experienced or not, on participating boats.  Demand has not yet filled all of the available crew spots.  I know there’s great reruns on TV every night.  Do you know how to use your video recorder?  Contact Dan Dawson to arrange your ride or find your crew.  You’ll be glad you did.  Dan Dawson  downwindan@gmail.com
