The Endless Summer Sailboard Classic as come and gone. Great weather, sailing,
sponsors, music, food, friends, and, of course, the beer truck. My sincere thanks to all
those that helped with the planning and execution, and those that participated in this
terrific event! Let’s do it again!
Now we have Michael to deal with. There seems to be some doubt as to the viability of
moving the training trailer off the beach. Thanks to a late night, last minute rescue by
Bob & Sandy, Tina, Bob Andrews, and yours truly, our training equipment has been
spirited away from the beach and resides in the safe confines of Bob’s windsurfing
trailer. A round of applause, if you will.
Now to the trailer. To move, or not to move, that is the question. Or maybe, can we
even move it? Seems like a daunting task. Stay tuned!
It has always been thus.
Swap Meet, September 23, 2018
From my point of view and the new students that came, the swap meet was a resounding success. I
would like to thank all the SPSC members that came down with their wares, even though some didn’t
sell anything; Mark Voigt, William Treichel, Jack May, Mike Levine, Lee Chapin, and Paul Hansard. Many
of these members where very generous in their pricing, with some items going for free to the new club
I know that new members David and Renee Hanselman acquired a board and some rigs, Gus and Barbie
Ray acquired a board, a compete rig, and an additional sail with mast. Training acquired a couple sails
and I believe an old timer acquired a new fin from another old timer.
We had tried a swap meet last year that failed miserably. This year we had great representation by the
club with people wanting to sell stuff but not enough people their browsing and buying. I am open to
suggestions on how to make this a yearly event, when to do it, and how to get more people involved on
both the giving/selling and receiving/buying sides.
American Heritage Girls Windsurfing by Elise McCall
Every year our American Heritage Girls Troop FL 1230 goes to Shell Point Beach to windsurf. It’s
a great experience, and the instructors are very nice and knowledgeable. It may be hard at first, but
once you get the hang of it you’re off into the ocean! Windsurfing is a great way to get off your phone
and get some Vitamin D. It was fun seeing our troop go outside of their comfort zone to try new things.
Even our moms came out and tried it!
Windsurfing is an amazing sport that everyone should try. We are very grateful to Shell Point
Sailboard Club for making this possible for our troop. We look forward to this outdoor adventure every
year. Can’t wait until next time!?
