St Patrick’s Day Party Cancelled

Hey Sailor,

With all the corona virus concerns hitting us daily, we have put a stop on our St Patrick’s Day Party after the Series Race this Saturday.  The Series Race is still on, it’s an 11 AM Start, the crew of Hula Girl is Committee and you can expect them to be in the Irish Spirit.  Stay tuned, we’ll let you know if anything changes.

While we self hibernate until this health mess goes away, here’s a fun fact you may need for a trivia contest someday and a diversion put a smile on your face.
  • What color do the people who live in Ireland recognize as their national color?  It’s not green.  It’s not orange either.  It’s blue.  It’s only the American’s who equate being Irish as green.  
  • Remember what Update Health Correspondent Roseanne Rosannadana said about a big health concern of her time.  “Well Jane, it just goes to show you, it’s always something.”  If you are too young to know about Roseanne Roseannadana, watch this clip from November 1978.

Cruising last call and St Patrick’s Day Party flyer

Hey Sailor,

March 6th.  It’s a Brew Cruise this Friday. The cruisers are sailing to Emerson Point, anchoring overnight then beginning what sounds like Uber powered pub crawl Saturday that finishes at the Oak and Stone for dinner.  Seven boats combined from the SPSA and Tampa Bay Sailing are on board.   Those wishing to join up should contact Robert Kryger at for details. 

March 21st. Here’s your flyer with the details for our St Patrick’s Day Party.

March SPSA Events

Hey Sailor,

Here’s your March 2020 list of SPSA events.

  • March 3rd 6 PM  Board Meeting at the Sailing Center.  Be advised we might be standing around for a few minutes waiting for a useable space to open up.  The high school sailors are sometimes finishing up. This is your chance to become a part of the SPSA planning.  If you are new to the club, please try to attend one of our board meetings.  You might have skills we need!  Did you know volunteers on earth always eat first in heaven and hell?  There’s a strong and undenied rumor that pizza and beers are available at these meetings.

  • March 14 & 15.  The next SPSA weekend cruising event is coming up on March 14/15.  It turns out the same weekend the Tampa Sailing Squadron is organizing a weekend trip to Bradenton (Regatta Point or Twin Dolphin marinas).  I am checking if we might tag along with them or alternatively we will organize something ourselves. If interested or for more information – please contact Robert Kryger at

  • March 21st  SPSA Series Races 13 and 14.  11 AM Start.  You might expect shenanigans from our esteemed race committee.

  • March 21st  LUCK OF THE IRISH  After the SPSA races we will have our annual St. Patrick’s Day party at the Sailing Center.  In addition to the corn beef and cabbage pot luck dinner, we’ll be playing poker, blackjack, roulette and bingo for liquid trophies. Contact Noreen at to coordinate menu items and locations for crockpots.
