Docking Assignments

Docking assignments for Laser and Sunfish are posted on the window of the club house.  This year’s assignments alternate Sunfish and Laser slots in order to make it easier to rig on race days.  There are a couple of slips on the up river end that have not been assigned.  These are reserved for members that keep there boat elsewhere and for Catamarans.   Be extremely careful when launching boats from the ramp, it is very slippery.

This Past Week

Seven Sunfish, five Lasers and numerous Thistles were able to take advantage of the winds to race around the marks.  The wind god did not provide any power for the Highlanders.  However, ever since Monday, the winds have been blowing hard enough to “blow your house in”.  Numerous members have been taking advantage of the ten to twenty mile per hour winds that have been blowing most of the week for a great “day” of sailing.

Rock has been added to the roadway.  Drive slowly down the road to help pack it down.

Thanks to Cliff Vadder for getting cushions repaired for the committee boat.  Maybe, we can get the committee boat running soon.

The air conditioner has been repaired but there is no guarantee how long it will continue to function.

Mooring bars have been added to the pilings.  Bumper boards will be installed soon.

 Member Reservations for Club

The club is available for private functions at no cost to club members.  In order to reserve the club for an event, contact Lisa Hart for reservations and guidelines.  Most folks do not care that the occasional sailor comes down to the club to use the facility while they have a ‘personal’ thing taking place - in fact, it may be entertaining!  Please be respectful to all our guest that attend any of these functions.  They could be potential prospects for our club.  Anyone that does use the club needs to make sure that it is cleaned prior to using the facilities and leave it in good shape at the conclusion of the event.

Scheduled Functions:

Terri Kenitzer Friday, June 14th

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner, Friday, July 12th

Upcoming Dates

 July 4th  Race for the Styrofoam Cup around Twelve Mile Island.

Last fall, the Beachland Beach Road Association had planned on having the road to the club coated.  It rained on the planned dates and so the coating process was postponed until this summer.  Beachland Beach Road will be totally closed to all traffic Monday July 15, and Tuesday, July 16.  Any access to the club will be foot traffic only.
