Five T-Birds and one Murrelet showed up for the inaugural race of the new frostbite series. However, at the last minute one of the T-Birds, Owl, was not able to race.
The main story of the day was the weather; wow what a great day; bright sun, temperatures in the mid forties, and wind 5 to 10 kts from SSE. We set a leeward mark near the entrance to Boat Haven and used the green buoy as the windward mark.
THEN, we retired for the inaugural party of the new clubhouse. Thanks to Steve for organizing the event and preparing the great chili. Heidi’s tasty corn bread sure went well with the chili.
This race started at noon, to make sure we could finish the party before dark. The following races of the series will start at 1:00.

As of 5:30pm on Friday 1/3 the forecast still looks reasonable for a race on Saturday 1/4. Start time is 12 noon. Afterward there will be a party at the container/clubhouse (between West Marine and the dive shop). Steve Scharf is cooking up two batches of chili, one with meat and one without. Heidi Eisenhour is providing cornbread. Please BYOB. This is your opportunity to start the year out right – let’s go sailing!
The year-end party was a good time with good food, awards, a slide show, and chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones. Thank you gift cards were awarded to those who contributed in various ways throughout the year (see below). We awarded $900 to the high school sailing team. Elections were held – see this page to find out who is on the expanded board for 2020. John Lynes gave a treasurer’s report explaining where our money comes from and where it goes. A recap of 2019 was presented as well as plans for 2020. A special thanks goes to Steve Scharf who provided all of the trophies and who has contributed so much of his time and resources this year.
Thank you’s and year end awards:
