6pm Start Time for Wednesday Races

Since the days have gotten longer there have been requests to start the races at 6:00pm instead of 6:15pm, so we are going to give that a try.  See you out there for the first race(s) of the Midsummer Series.  Note that there will be a new committee boat – look for a Boston Whaler flying the race committee flag.

On Your Mark…

The PTSA race marks are back in the water and ready for the first race on April 3rd.  Some may not know that the marks must be removed every year for the winter lest they accumulate too much fouling and kelp and be washed away in one of our big winter storms.  The marks and rode must also be cleaned and repaired as necessary to be ready for the next season.  James Arsulich, with his trusty Catalina 36 “Nora Mae”, has assumed responsibly for this task over the last several years.  This year he has been ably assisted by Brian Bolling, John Lynes, and Jim Heumann.  The guy actually doing the diving has been Oscar Johnson from Poulsbo.

End of Year Party and Awards Thursday 11/15 at 6pm

The annual end-of-the-year awards party and dinner will be held at the Pope Marine Building at 6pm on Thursday 11/15 at 6pm.  As in the past it will be a potluck dinner – please bring a main and a side dish to share.  Beer and wine will be available and there will be a slideshow.  This is always a fun event that provides an opportunity for each crew to relive their victories and decry their losses, to retell the stores of crashes and near misses, and to get excited for the new season starting in the spring of 2019.

The Pope Marine Building is located on the dock at the corner of Water and Madison Streets in Port Townsend (near the Cotton Building where the party was last year).

Opening Day this Saturday (5/5)

The Port Townsend Yacht Club is sponsoring a boat parade and blessing of the fleet to celebrate the start of the boating season.  Everyone is invited to participate.  The parade begins around noon at city dock.  You can find all the details at their web site.

And don’t forget that leg one of the Port to Port race is this Saturday as well, starting at 2:30 (not 2:00).  So you could join in the parade then race to Port Ludlow!
