40 years ago a group of sailors formed the NWSA sailing club. It is hard to believe that many years have passed. According to the NWSA 2014 directory our oldest member in the club is Tony Campo who joined in 1976 and is a past commodore serving in 1982. We have several other members that have been in the club for a long time. The club has seen many changes since it's beginning in 1975 like boat equipment, improved sails, hull materials, radar,GPS, radar, etc.

It is time to celebrate the 40 years for our NWSA club. The celebration will be held during the Waukegan sail on Saturday, August 8, 2015. This will be the club's 40th anniversary sail with a picnic for the anniversary following the sail to be hosted by Don and Jan Buell at their home at 3264 Victoria Lane, Waukegan, IL. 60087.

The club will supply the meat (brats, chicken breasts and hamburgers), paper plates, plastic ware, napkins, condiments and a celebration cake. Each person attending should bring a dish to pass {hot or cold and no dessert), your drinks (beer, wine, soda, etc.) and a lawn chair.

There will be a sign-up sheet at the club meetings and on the NWSA website. We want to ensure we don't have too many of the same items. We also need each person wishing to attend to sign-up so the club knows how much and what kind of meat to purchase. You will also need to sign-up for the sail with the cruise captain Don Buell.

You may attend both the sail and the picnic or just one of them.
The NWSA board is still determining what the token to commemorate the 40th anniversary will be. More information will be shared soon on this.
