Midway through our NWSA sailing season, we’re finally able to put the cold, rain, and disruptive weather from our early sail dates in June behind us and hopefully look forward to favorable seas and winds in August and September.
Since the last Fleet Captain report, although five sails were scheduled, only two actually took place; the Kenosha sail 1 and the Start of the Mac sail. No one signed up for the OPEN July 4 sail, the July 13 Hook sail and the Green Lake sail were cancelled due to lack of a Cruise Captain and crew interest, and the Kenosha to Racine sail due to the extreme heat warnings.
We are still looking for a cruise captains for the Lake Mendota Fall sail September 7-8.
The Kenosha sail TOTALLY lacked for wind and the Mac sail was perfect. We have some great sails and social events coming up, so, please, sign up. Of our current 136 members, only 16 crew members have signed up for sails so far this summer.
I’d like to thank the eight cruise captains and six sailboat owners who have contributed to the success of our sails so far this summer. So, winter will soon be upon us (forgive my forward thinking). NOW is the time to sign up for the sails, meet some new friends, and learn more about sailing and seamanship.
Fair winds and following seas.
