1 February 2021
Here’s what happened and in the the very near future in your St Petersburg Sailing Association.
Libèlula is the King of the Bay for January. Her elapsed time & corrected time of 1:02:23 & 55:40 were more than enough to take the flag away from Surge. Surge must have had time to eat a nice lunch on their attempt to hold the flag. It would be very nice if Surge arranged a transfer of the flag to Libèlula in short order. See the results dated 1 Feb 2021. http://spsa.us/ click on the Racing drop down and select KING OF THE BAY – RESULTS. You should check later today.

13 & 14 February Valentine’s Weekend SPSA Cruising Event For our first Spring 2021 COVID-safe cruising event, we have planned a group sail to Emerson Point, followed by anchoring out on the north-shore of the Manatee River. Weather-permitting, the approximate schedule will be:
10:00 am – Meet at Buoy G3 (N27° 46.0’, W82° 36.6’) & sail to Manatee River inlet (N27° 32.6’, W82° 40.7’)
5:00 pm – Target time for everyone to be at anchor. Check in with Kryger/Rose Therese on channel 72.
6:21 pm – sunset & drawing for prizes.
7:00 pm – Dinner on your own on board your boat. Bragging rights for boat with best aroma.
Each pair of participants should bring 1 bottle of wine & 1 chocolate dessert (for two), packed inside of a closed bag or box. For the drawing, boaters will bribe cruise director for first dibs to select closed box or bag. Desserts should be store-bought and unopened for COVID safety.
Explore Emerson point. Boats head back at their leisure Sunday or even Monday as it’s President’s Day Weekend.
