So far, it’s been a good summer for NWSA. The skippers and crew appear to be enjoying the sails and socializing afterwards. Due to cancellation of Door County and an open sailing date on July 29, only two sails have been completed since our last Communique. The July 24 North Point sail presented steady winds and flat seas but concluded with a short but drenching downpour. The August 7 sail out of Kenosha was a story of choppy seas and zero wind. Life on Lake Michigan. Good times at the North Point "afterwards" and a great turnout for the Kenosha sail that concluded with our first post-Covid social gathering from land and sea, also at North Point. There are seven more sails remaining for the season.
Three boats and eight crew members signed up for the Port Washington long distance sail. The crew members will meet the boats in Port Washington and sail on Saturday, August 28. Port Washington and the surrounding environs present an interesting area for exploring. For those who wish to stay for the weekend, reservations should be made at either a location in Port Washington or the immediate area. The cruise captain will be in touch regarding reservations for dinner and meet up locations and times for the Saturday sail. .
As usual, many thanks to the skippers, crew, cruise captains, and sail reporters for their time, energy, and interest in our sails. Reports on the individual sails are included in the August Communique.
