February Series Race and King of Bay sightings


Hello Sailors,

Our next Series Race is just around the corner.  Here’s our list of upcoming events and other bits of information.

  • February 23rd  Saturday 11 AM  Series Race No 6.  The February winds have been great for sailing!  Get your crew lined up.  Our post race party will be at Courigans.  Here’s an inside tip – we cleaned the SPSA locker out, threw out a whole bunch of junk, however we found some good stuff we will be giving away.

  • Reminder:  The Chili Cook-Off originally scheduled for January will be held after Series Race 8 on April 20th.  Put a great Chili together.  We can’t let “what’s her name” win again.  

  • King of the Bay Activity:  Four boats were seen this past Saturday running the King of the Bay course and dodging the numerous Valentine’s Regatta participants  – 285 Optis and Lasers, what a great thing to see.  Out running the 3 mark course were Charles Archer’s Surge (Compass 47), Richard Carlson’s Because (32 Sharpie Catboat), Dan Dawsons Last Tango (Hunter 33.5) and Joe Toth’s Abeona (Morgan 36-5).  The wind was great that day!  The February King of the Bay Flag will be awarded in March.  Give it a shot.

Lets Go Sailing!
