Fleet Captain's Report

Update on the Fleet

The fleet has weathered the recent winter storms relatively intact. Fortunately, the keel boats did not suffer any damage. Some of the small boats at the club did suffer some minor damage. Repairs will be coordinated in April.

The Sunday Series plans are in full swing! As Joe mentioned in his article last month, some twenty members have expressed interest. If you are willing to donate money to help us build up our Albacore fleet, please contact Joe.

David Oakland, Joe Morgan and Steve Hanson have already helped work on the keel boats; thank you! Both Snagglepuss and Wagtail are enjoying the remainder of their winter hibernation at Holiday Marina. We still have more work to do before the season starts, and we welcome you to jump in as you can. Please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you are willing to help. I will arrange work days with all of those interested.

We have yet to do some general cleaning, woodwork, fiberglass work, and electrical repairs. Plans are underway to install a roller furling jib on Snagglepuss. Hopes are that the addition of roller furling gear will make Snags more welcoming to sail by the membership.

As mentioned in earlier newsletters, we are planning some cruising events for this summer. The first event will include a sail and raft up in the York River. Personal boats are certainly welcome! We plan to have both of the Club's keel boats involved as well. Please let me know if you have ideas for further excursions!

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you are interested in helping with boat work or are interested in any of the Club's many opportunities to sail. See you on the water
