Commodore's Corner - May 2009

Great turnout at the last club meeting, lousy configuration of the tables, and welcome to a new member whose name is Merrilee. If you weren’t there, keep your eyes open to the web site to see which committee or event you have been assigned to. Lessons are around the corner, so please check out the website to figure out when YOU can help out at the beach.

Many people at the meeting may not have realized this since the club DOES NOT participate in sunshine laws. Since we are out in the sun so much, more exposure for meetings would not be good. Anyway, what happened was that a coup took place. A bloody coup (paper cut), and I am now the COMMODORE for life. My first act as your benevolent, yet self serving, despot is to even the playing field. Up to this point, we have members that are buying cool new gear and, frankly, have trailers holding WAY too much stuff. Then we have folks like me that have the bare necessities to get on the water. Time to (remove the children from the room now) SOCIALIZE all equipment in the club. So thanks for getting new gear, Jerry, I look forward to sharing it with you!!! As you know, I’m kidding, because it just wouldn’t work. Everyone in the club is so friendly and willing to help, loan, etc. each other that no one would notice a difference. Why, the club is almost, dare I say it, like a COMMUNE. What with sharing, helping each other out and drum circles breaking out every now and again. Guess that’s why we drink beer. No one trusts the kool-aid.

Great fun at the Stephen C. Smith; the weather was spectacular, the beer delicious, and the food wonderful and plentiful. A nice variety of beer at different times, my new favorite being Slim Chance. Tasted very good for a light beer, having an actual beer flavor.

I love the windsurfing trophies. We hand them out like super citizen bumper stickers at an elementary school. The trophy this year was very nice, with a nicely framed picture of what was on the back of the shirt and your finishing place printed on it. I received second in the Sports Fleet category of people who are, in the words of Ian Anderson, “Too Old to Rock ‘n Roll but too Young to Die”. Great job by Tina and Wright in distributing them.

Lessons

Lessons are right around the corner, beginning this month. This year we will be giving lessons twice a month, on the second (2nd) and fourth (4th) Saturday (with a few exceptions) of the month from 11am to 3pm. What we need is YOU!!!!

We need instructors and assistants. Even though they are on the 2nd and 4th Saturday, these are the dates for those without calendars: May 23, June 6 (a week early week due to NIMBY), June 27, July 11, July 25, August 8, August 22, and September 12. Mark you calendar NOW on the day you can assist.

Thanks to all for helping.

Beach Cleanup Day !!!

April 19 saw lots of wind on the day we came to the beach to construct more drying racks. I got there a little after 3 and many of the sailors were just coming off the water after sailing since 11am, exhausted. However, many of those sailing stayed around to help with the beach fixup.

Once again the carpentry skills of SPSC members and their tools were evident. If you haven’t seen the new drying racks yet, check them out. I used them after sailing at the Stephen C. Smith and getting my sail upright and secured was never easier. There was LOTS of room for many sails. Holes were drilled in the bottom of all the rails so mast foots (feet?) would snuggle nicely. The rails that were up and nailed together were disassembled and screwed together after foot holes were drilled in them.

Thanks to all who came to the beach for the purpose of getting this work done and to all who came in from sailing to work. Helping get the work done was the wonderful Bacardi Limon provided by the Perv mixed with the Mexican beer.
