After a blistering long weekend start to the racing season, the only blisters we have seen for the last two weeks have been from sunburns. The spectacular summer has definitely not been conducive to sailing. There were light winds again for week 3 and Phil Trethewey set up a beautiful course. Apparently he enjoyed some solitude and was able to have a short nap while waiting in vain for boats to show up at the starting line. While no one showed up, Phil did earn 13 points and is now tied for third place in the 2012 standings. Thanks Phil.
Let’s hope the winds cooperate next week and let’s see get some boats out for the race. Junior sailors will earn points for both the main standings and the junior championship.
We are looking for race marshals for most of the weekends this summer. Please contact Drew Reeves as soon as possible by email at Drew.Reeves@msanet.com or at the cottage at 705-645-5660. Drew marshaled many of the races last year, so please volunteer as soon as possible to reduce the burden on Drew. Sailing socials are currently scheduled for July 28th at Jennifer and Sean Buckley’s (Milne Rd. north shore) on July 21st and August 11th at the Sandra and Laurie Reinsborough’s (Milne Rd. north shore). If you are interested in hosting a social, please contact Sue or Bob Lytle by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the cottage at 705-646-0012. See you at the starting line at 2pm (sharp) next week.
