Sunday Series


A Note From The Fleet Captain - 10/5/19

The Ware River and Mobjack Bay saw some lovely conditions for sailing this past month. We were very fortunate that Hurricane Dorian headed offshore. Nonetheless, the Club was prepared for the storm. The keel boars were moved to safe haven and the dinghies were secured.

Wagtail and Snagglepuss have been moved to Holiday Marina on the Severn River. They were hauled out, and will remain out, for the off season and will undergo some much-needed repairs. Thanks to all who helped move the boats, especially Jay McGlohn who offered his boat, and his time, to tow Snagglepuss around the horn.

Several folks have offered to help with the maintenance of our keel boats, I will be reaching out to you soon. Clayton James will be spearheading repairs and improvements to Snagglepuss with the intent of racing her next year.

The Sunday Series has been moderately attended during the Fall season and continues to see several boats out each weekend. The light to moderate winds we have experienced have led to some challenging times out on the water. Skills continue to improve throughout the fleet. The WRYC Sunday Series offers a great opportunity to sailors with all ranges of experience, including none. Believe me, you will not find a more relaxed place to learn to sail small boats and/or race.

As I write this, conditions for the coming weekend look like mid-90’s and sunny with -10kts of wind. Sailing conditions are still perfect in our little slice of paradise.See you on the water!
