Saving Sailing

January 18, 2010 at 12:45 am | Posted in Comments | Leave a comment

During the board meeting today, Joanne mentioned the book Saving Sailing by Nicholas D. Hayes.  I ordered it on the spot with my Droid because it sounds like a book that anyone interested in keeping the sailing club going should be reading.  Being relatively new to sailing, I didn’t know that the sport has declined a lot in the last decade.  I suppose there are a lot of activities that compete for everyone’s time, but if it is a choice between sitting around watching football and being out on the water, Let’s Sail!

Getting Ready!

January 17, 2010 at 11:47 pm | Posted in News | 5 Comments

The 2010 sailing season is just around the corner.  The board is planning racing schedules, regatta weekends and the Spring Fling.  We discussed adding a regional regatta to the schedule.  LOVE that idea as it will maybe get me to go outside the club venues.
