Blah, blah, blah..Keys...blah, blah.....
Vacation over. Time to get back to it. We have a big season on the way, and it all starts
with the who-knows-how-many annual Wind Ceremony! Once we’ve completed the
rites of re-tying the cosmic thread that propels us across the water to glory and beer, we
have a very busy season of lessons. Our biggest out-reach program. If you haven’t
come down to sail on a lessons day, you really are missing out. Come show your
enthusiasm for the sport with the curious, the out-going, and the eager to learn. Soon, it
will also be time for the biggest event of the year, the Stephen C. Smith Memorial
Regatta, April 26-28th. Or, as your Commodore calls it, “My favorite weekend!” I hope
to see many of you at the Quarter tonight for our monthly meeting.
