Commodore's Corner - September 2010

September – the official “End of Summer”. Wait, summer can’t be over until after we have the 23rd Annual Endless Summer Sailboard Classic October 1-3, 2010 on the shores of Shell Point Beach!!!

Registration will begin Friday at 7:00pm on the beach and soon thereafter you can look forward to those famous Rick and Judy wings, cooked on the beach right before your very eyes! Rick has decided that this year RUM will be the liquor for tasting!! So, let Rick know (rknerr@comcast.net) if you plan on bringing a bottle and what your poison of choice will be. Rick will coordinate so there are no duplications and your palate will be sufficiently saturated with a different “taste” of Rum each time you belly up to the table.

Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday will be lovingly prepared by Linda’s Home Oven. Ya gotta get some of that coffee it’s the best on the beach!! I’m sure there will be an assortment of breakfast pastries and fruit to wash down with that great coffee.

Don't miss the opening of Café Donaldo’s for lunch on Saturday and Sunday. They will be serving Gumbo and you can’t leave the beach without eating one (or two) of Hulon’s Dogs! The Gumbo Contest will be headed up by Don and Leah this year. Unfortunately, Sharman can’t be in two places at once and we will miss her. I’ve heard she may be able to make Saturday afternoon. Anyway, get those gumbo pots warmed up and make your best batch for judging on Saturday, October 2. If you plan on entering a pot, please let Leah know (chapin_l@msn.com).

For your entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights, presenting the one, the only, DJBobbyG!! Since he has a never ending list of favorites I’m pretty sure he will be spinning some awesome tunes that will keep the dance floor packed!!

Following racing on Saturday we will have suppah at the Village along with a prize drawing. There will be more racing on Sunday (wind permitting) and then trophy presentations in the afternoon.

Register now to save a few bucks! And, if you haven’t “upped” your dues, please do.

Getting Fit Between Wind and Water
by Jen Murray, The Wall Street Journal, August 30, 2010

The Executive: Larsh Johnson depends on the weather for his workout. When conditions are right, the founder and chief technology officer of the San Mateo, Calif., based energy-usage software company eMeter, is out windsurfing. If Mother Nature doesn't cooperate, even his home workout is designed to strengthen him in ways that make being on the water safer and more pleasurable.

Mr. Johnson, 53, swam competitively in high school and has always enjoyed water sports. He was first introduced to windsurfing in the 1970s while attending Stanford University. "I saw people doing it and found a friend to try it with me," he says. "Having someone equally inexperienced is great since you're not the only one getting the laughs." The exhilaration of it attracts him. "Windsurfing gives you that adrenaline rush when you get your speed going," he says.
