Sunday May 3, 2015 Season Start

8 skippers  crossed the starting line Sunday past and were greeted by favourable building southwest winds that show the sure sign summer is just around the corner. It was a fun day, tuning our yachts as well as catching up on the news with our fellow sailors. We were delighted to welcome new member Vern, with his boat # 777, freshly repurchased from the US – Boots thought he may have seen it at Stowe in the distant past?
We will have 1 M Soling sailing this Thursday evening and a great 2 day club opening this weekend – check the schedule. ECs I believe are this evening. Hats off to those who set the buoys this year; their placement is excellent – the new location for the starting line allows for a longer first leg which should reduce the  &*&*(*&#$*+ at the weather mark.
Such fun, it’s all good!
