Update on the Fleet
Punxsutawney Phil is the bomb! An early spring has been predicted, which means sailing will be here soon! Last week the Sunday Sailing Series crew assembled for the 2019 Season organizational and planning meeting. Joe Morgan and Jim Garrett have a solid plan to build off of last year’s successful inaugural season. The Club is in an interesting (and desirable) position. We have more boats available than we have sailors to sail them. If you have ever considered sailing or had a desire to get out on the water and enjoy our beautiful natural resources, please join us for the 2019 season. I am completely sincere when I say that I have never been around a more inviting and relaxed group of sailboat racers. There is NO pressure when racing with the WRYC Sunday Series crew! If you have no experience whatsoever, this is a great place to learn sailboat racing. If you have some experience and want to polish your skills, the WRYC Sunday series is the place to do that. If you are a hardcore racer looking to demonstrate your dominance on the course, come on out, I can almost guarantee you will beat me! Regardless of why you come out, please, just come out and sail! Help rejuvenate sailing on the Ware River!
The keelboat fleet is potentially growing, as well. The Club was afforded the opportunity to acquire a 25ft Irwin shoal draft sloop. Irwins are very solidly built boats, and the shoal keel will allow for some unbridled exploration of our local waters. Negotiations are still ongoing, but we are hopeful that the opportunity to economically increase our fleet comes to fruition. With the potential addition of the Irwin, there will be more opportunity for folks to get out on the water this season.
