Dear Members and Friends,
Well we’re off and running! Youth lessons are starting this week and we have a full class for the upcoming weekend Adult lessons. We still have boats to get in the water, but the Lasers, Soling, Optis, Interlakes, Johnson Xboat (new to us) and one of the 2.4 meter boats are in and ready to go. J-Fore (Cal24) is in the water and just needs a couple days to get it prepped for sailing.
As we’re ramping up, there are a couple of things I’d love help with. The grass grows daily down here : ) and I don’t have a weed wacker to keep things neat! I’d love either a volunteer to stop down about once per week during the summer to clean things up, or the donation of a gas trimmer that the staff could use. Please let me know if you can commit to one of these to keep the pier looking nice throughout the summer.
I would also love the donation of a gas grill for the pier. We have one that was donated about 10+ years ago and it is getting a little rough around the edges! I’m planning on using it weekly for our GOAST nights (Sunday Sailing – Get Out and Sail Tonight) which will happen weekly throughout the summer starting at 4:30 on Sunday Evenings (come on down and bring a friend).
Speaking of friends…..a great way to grow the organization is to personally invite someone down to go sailing with you. Any fully paid member can bring a non-member friend to the pier. Your friend will be asked to fill out a waiver and purchase a $10 daily membership. You might be surprised at how many of those friends decide they’re interested in sailing! It’s your way of sharing the joy and helping to grow our membership
