Unfortunately, we print the phrase again. "The River Wins." The river has covered part of the docking area most of the week.

First Weekend Of Racing Posponed
No Race Committee

Before we can go sailing, the bottom level needs to be cleaned, the hoists need to be installed, the floating docks need to be installed and the pylon needs to be straighten this Saturday. We plan to have the bob cat to scrape the bottom when the level at the Water Tower reach 12.8. If the level is below 12.8 on Saturday, we will continue to commission the club at 9:00.

Boat Identification

It is time to put those stickers on your boat, trailer and mast. Please have them installed by July 1st. The stickers go at the foot of the mass or near the goose neck. One should go on the trailer next to the hitch. Identify the boat by placing a sticker at the starboard bow under the water deflector.

River Cities Community Sailing Program

As most of our club member know by now, the Louisville Sailing Club is hosting the River Cities Community Sailing Program (RCCSP). The program has lost several long-time adult class instructors this past year. If you could volunteer in the adult program please contact George Lucas.

Docking Assignments

This years docking assignments are posted on the window at the clubhouse. Please make sure your boat is in the proper place and use the tied downs to ensure the safety of your boat and the boats around you.

According to LSC's policy, a docking space is assigned to a member and that space will remain theirs through successive years. Once a space becomes available, the dock chair will assign the open space to the member with the most club seniority on the waiting list.

For those with small craft, a request for a spot on the lower level will not guarantee a spot on the sea wall. When there are to many request for lower parking for these boats, they will be assigned to a spot along the hill side of the lower level.

Five spots along the sea wall have been left vacant for launching boats that are stored top side and those assigned to a spot along the hill side of the lower level. It is also possible to launch from the ramp near the down river hoist. The dock chair is also working on creating an additional launch next to the committee boat.

If you have any questions about docking, contact the Dock Chair, David Bauer.

It Is Time To Make Your Payment

Invoices for the Louisville Sailing Club have been sent to all members. Please review it and adjust it for any additional boats that you have stored on club's property. Bring it on Commissioning Day and give it to Eugene Cox.

How to Pack / Grease Trailer Wheel Bearings

Yearly maintenance of your trailer is important. If your trailer is backed into the water, it is a good idea to grease your wheel bearings often. Watch on YouTube
