SPSA Important Stuff

Hey Sailors,

I have 3 items to bring to your attention.

  • Saturday 19 October Commodores Cup 12 Noon Start.  Notice that change!  12 Noon Start.  Please register with the link  http://spsa.us/racing/regattas/ . Then on the 2019 Commodore’s Cup Line click on the ENTER button.  Afterwards there will be a dinner in the Sailing Center.  The SPSA will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, turkey burgers, and chicken wings.  If you would like to bring a side dish or salad (not required), please contact Noreen at  nursenory@yahoo.com

  • We now have a oversized King of the Bay Flag currently in the possession of Charles Archer of Surge.  Here’s how this event works.  If you run the course and your corrected time beats that of Surge,  Charles must give the flag to you.  The details you need are found on the regatta page.  On the King of the Bay line, click on the DOCS button and download the Notice of Race.  Here’s your link  https://www.spsa.us/spsa/cm/cm-regatta.php?mode=list&idClub=1

  • St Petersburg Sailing Center.  In the next city election, November 5th, there is a referendum to increase the term of the lease on the Sailing Center from 5 to 20 years.  All the reasons to vote for this proposal can be found of the St Petersburg Sailing Center FaceBook page and at https://sailstpete.org/referendum/   This is a no-brainer, please support our Sailing Center.

Let’s Go Sailing!
