Date Correction & our NOOD Sailors

8 April 2021

Hey Sailor,

Here’s a correction for the date of our next race day, headline news from the St Petersburg National Offshore One Design event and other topics.

  • Spring Series Race Day #4 is April 17th  Our regular monthly Saturday race days are always on Saturday.  It’s not on Sunday April 18th.  Those races are never on Sunday.  Thanks to all of you that did not send me a message.  Thanks to the one person who did.  That is a very efficient way to let me know I screwed up.
  • Spring Series #4 Post Race will be under the tree.  BYO everything.  
  • The NOODs  How about this stellar performance from our SPSA Sailors.
  • 1st Place North Sails Double Handed: Silver Surfer (Harvey Ford)
  • 1st Place Cruising World Rally Race – Cruiser: Cayennita III (Tony Sanpere).  SPSA had 6 boats running in this class
  • 1st and 3rd Place PHRF 1:  1st Tack Tic (Mike Siedlecki) and 3rd Warrior (Grant Dumas).  SPSA had 4 boats sailing in this class.
  • 3rd Place PHRF 2: Backoff (Tony Barrett)
  • 5 of our 14 SPSA Boats racing finished in the trophies!
  • Cruising in the SPSA  At last evening’s board meeting we discussed running organized cruising activities.  We recognize that many of the membership have an interest in adding cruising to their sailing lives.  In the past our cruises have not been planned far enough in advance for many interested parties to prioritize their schedules.  Our Vice Commodore Penny Simone (and new boat owner) will be organizing a group of SPSA Sailors to work the details of scheduling and providing leadership.  If you have an interest in participating and/or helping to get this going, contact Penny. 
  • Twilight Series  The Yacht Club’s Friday evening racing series is going strong.  Get your boat out on the water for this delightful every Friday evening event.  Need more feet on your boat or a boat under your feet?  Contact Brian   Here’s a link to register for the Twilight Series
