Admiral Ship Supply has donated $500 to help pay for the costs associated with maintaining PTSA’s race marks. Race mark maintenance is one of our biggest expenses so this donation is especially appreciated. When you shop at Admiral please let them know you appreciate the donation.
Don’t miss the first race of the season. It will be a City Dock start at 6:15pm.
Last week’s kickoff party was a good time with an excellent potluck, some interesting speakers, and about fifty people attending.
It’s almost time to start racing. But first it’s party time. All the information you need is on the poster below. We are looking forward to seeing everyone and having a fun start to the racing season.
If so, please let Robin Mills (email@example.com), the new program director at the Northwest Maritime Center, know. She is collecting them so they can be given to the winners of this year’s event. Here are the trophies that Robin is looking for:
The 27th annual Shipwrights’ Regatta will be held on Saturday February 24th. It’s the first race of the year on Port Townsend Bay and it’s always a blast. You can get all the details on the Maritime Center website.
The board had decided to change the race days for the spring and summers series` from Friday to Wednesday. Because families who want to go away for the weekend often get an early start on Friday, causing them to miss a race, the hope is that this change will increase participation. This should also make it easier for folks to do the distances races, which normally occur on Saturdays.
The Quimper Tar/Ed Barcott casual races, which were previously held on Wednesday will now happen on Friday.
It was relatively warm on the first Saturday of the the new year and two Thunderbirds, Thatuna and Owl, took advantage of it to get in a race. Two laps from Indian Point around the tower. The wind was pretty good and it didn’t rain. Owl prevailed but it was a close fought contest.
The plan is to sail every Saturday, weather permitting. Races will start at 12 noon. Come on out and enjoy some casual winter sailing.
