Big Fun In Small Boat Sailing!

Current Conditions

June 05, 2014

Tuesday was a great night of racing for the Sunfish. At least nine boats were in the water.  The wind actually showed up for a fun evening.  A number of visitors were dock side to watch the sailors battle to the finish line.  This weekend will be the first week of racing for all the other fleets.

Docking Assignments

Docking assignments are posted on the widow at the club.  Five spots in the small boat area are left open for launching.  These are for club members that leave their boats on the upper level, club boats, and those assigned on the hill side of the lower level.  LSC guidelines for docking assignments are also posted on the window.

Spring Picnic

After an afternoon of sailing that saw half-dozen boats on the water, some twenty-five members came to the LSC Spring picnic. Fair weather and few bugs greeted the picnickers who included many spouses and a few little ones. The tables were laden with forty grilled burgers, two packs of hot dogs and delicious side dishes graciously provided by members - everything consumed to the "last bite" by the hungry sailors. Dave Bauer and Pat Passafiume represented the club leadership. John and Connie were unofficial "guests-of-honor". Eating and conversation continued until the sun set behind the Indiana shore. Thanks to Keli and Stuart Ulferts and Sid Ordog for getting it all together.

Equipment Identification

In a continuing effort to manage the boats stored at the club and discover which boats are abandoned, we need to identify the current membership’s boats. When invoices were sent out stickers were attached.  They have the year, 2014, and your invoice number. Please put one on the starboard bow of each boat, just below the rub rail; the other goes on your trailer - right side or top of the hitch fitting.  If you have a sail stored in the club house, use one for the sail/mast, near the step.  If you need stickers for your boat, contact Eugene Cox.

It is also a good idea to paint your name on your cradle.  When the mud crews have to quickly get boat off the lower dock when the river is rising, there is no time to make sure all cradles and boats are matched together. 

Directory Pictures

It is almost time to publish the Louisville Sailing Club annual directory.  Please take a head shot of yourself send it to the Editor  (You will know it was received if you get the message “This email address does not respond to your email”.)  It has been suggested that we use Herman Munster or Phyllis Diller to be placed in all the blank picture holders.  We need these pictures immediately.
