So far this season, three of four scheduled sails have been completed successfully. Many thanks to Larry Makowski and George & Sally Andersson for volunteering as cruise captains for these sails. In advance, I'd like to thank Tom Steider (a new member of the club) and Larry Makowski for volunteering for the August 29 and Sept. 12 sails respectively.
Considering the Year of Covid, the turnout for our sails has been very positive and the response of both skippers and crew to both the sails and after-sail socializing, has likewise been very favorable. We still need two cruise captain volunteers for the Sept. 19 and Sept. 26 sails. Please sign up online if interested.
Please offer your suggestions for the location of the Sept. 26 sail, which is currently TBD. Although the Sept. 26 sail is our official final outing of the year, October is a beautiful time of the year for sailing. Most frequently Mr. Weather has the upper hand and these scheduled sails are generally cancelled. We'll keep our options open for perhaps one October sail.
In closing, due to Covid, we have quite a reduced fleet this year and so I cannot even begin to adequately thank our skippers who generously and repeatedly provide their yachts, time and energy for our members.
Fair skies and following seas,
-Lorraine Klabunde, 2020 Fleet Captain
