Summer Series Racing and TACOS! August 24th

The 2019 Summer Series Club Racing series continues on August 24th… come join us for an afternoon of racing! The Captain’s meeting is at 2pm.

At 11AM on Saturday, Gene Miller will be holding the popular beginner’s racing seminar covering the rules (keeping things as simple as possible) of racing, as well some lesson plans and (maybe) drills on starting a race and negotiating the course and other boats on the course. The hope is to cover all of these items and more to get you on the race course. The best way to become a better sailor is to sharpen your skills with racing!

Our goal is to enable all the racers to participate on each race day, so as always we need to have a committee of volunteers to run the Race Committee for each of our club races.

Please contact me regarding your availability for Race Committee on the 24th of August. Alternatively you can sign up on the WSC web site at https://waccamawsailing.com/volunteer-sign-up-sheets/.

TACOS TACOS TACOS!

Deidra is cooking up some tacos for our post-racing social. She and Dan are supplying the chicken and the Taco shells. DeeDee is bringing seasoned beef for the tacos. Please coordinate with Deidra either through email (dss9802@gmail.com) or through the site’s Facebook page so that you could plan your contributions to the meal.

Woohoo!

Pursuit Challenge – Aug 10!!

Keelboat Races for Aug 10 have been cancelled, and INSTEAD we’re doing a Pursuit Challenge!

The last Pursuit Challenge was well attended and a lot of fun.

The Captains meeting is at 2 pm. We plan to start the slower boats first and followed by the faster boats later. Each boat will get an individual start time to push off from our dock. We plan to do a large triangular course around the lake. Our course around the lake should be without a lot of or any tacking and will finish in front of our boat club. First boat starts at 3 PM, This should be a great sail for our larger Sailboats. We will have our customary pot-luck after the finish, so come and join us on Saturday, August 10.
