A Note From The Fleet Captain - 5/3/19

Spring is upon us, and I am ready to be back on the water! We have had some challenges this off season. The keel boats have been wandering. Thanks to all who helped set anchors, kedge off, and tow the boats back to their proper moorings. We are making plans now to upgrade the moorings at the Club. The latest escapade was due to a failed mooring line between the anchor and the mooring buoy. We will need some hands to help in that endeavor. 

In the last two reports I have mentioned the opportunity the Club had to procure an Irwin 25’ Sloop. As you may have noticed, it is not yet at the Club. The title company has had some challenges getting the titled transferred from the previous owner to WRYC. I am told the situation has been resolved and the transfer is immanent. I feel it is important to let the membership know that the Club has not incurred any financial responsibility due to this delay. The previous owner’s insurance company has picked up the storage tab during the delay. Hopefully the new boat will be joining the fleet soon.

Due to some extenuating circumstances this off season, there are still several repairs to complete on the keel boats. We need help with fiberglass work, outboard repairs, electrical repairs, rigging repairs, and general housekeeping. To those of you that have offered to help, thank you. For those who have yet to reach out, your help is needed. Please drop me a line. No experience is necessary. All we need is your will to work!

Finally, Joe Morgan and Jim Garrett facilitated two offseason dingy sailing seminars and did an excellent job; thank you! The Albacore fleet is nearly ready for the 2019 Season. Please consider coming out to join the fleet. We are in need of crew and help with Race Committee. If you are interested, please contact Joe Morgan, Jim Garrett, or me. The racing starts the May 19thand will run through early fall. Hope to see many of you out there this year.

See you on the water!

— Scott Titus, Fleet Captai
