Starting the Countdown!

Cripes!! Is that right? Next weekend? My how time flies!

Ok…so here’s the scoop….if we want to go sailing we have to get docks in the water, equipment organized and boats launched. While we  always hope that things will go quick and easy….we always run into something that makes us wish we had one more person down at the pier helping out (“Hey…do you mind changing out that flat tire on the boat trailer?”)

So…next weekend, Saturday May 21st….9 am till….? At the Pier. All help is welcome! If you’re new to town or to the organization, stop down and say hi! Just don’t be surprised if someone says, “Welcome to the DSSA! Could you grab that box and haul it to the shed.” : )

2016 Season

2016-04-03 18:16:50

Yes….it’s been a long winter, but as I sit here, the ice is off the bay and we’ve had enough of those beautiful, sunny and warm days to make us start dreaming about summer and sailing. I have to admit, I’ve been a little slow on the uptake this spring and am just now starting to get summer events posted on the calendar.  A couple things of note….

Our annual spaghetti dinner is scheduled for next weekend, once again at St. Paul’s church in Duluth (details on our Facebook site). We’ve also scheduled our Spring Open House events for Saturday June 4th and June 11th – Noon-4pm.

These events are great ways to find out about the DSSA organization and to connect with members.

As we head towards summer, I encourage all to connect with our Facebook site and/or email me at and ask to be added to the mailing list. Those are the two main venues that I use to disseminate information about summer events.

I look forward to seeing new and old friends at the pier this summer. If you’re new to the area and have questions, email me and I will be in touch!

Facebook...a great way to keep in touch!

2015-07-06 10:56:10

I thought I’d throw a reminder out to folks that our Facebook site is a great way to stay in touch with what is going on at the pier during the summer months as I update that more regularly then the web site! If you haven’t made it there, check us out at:

The summer is staying busy and we’ve had some beautiful days! Be sure to stop down and visit! Check the pier calendar for exceptions to our hours, but generally you’ll find someone down there from noon till at least 6:30 7 days a week….later if someone is out sailing!
