Fair Winds for Youth at Loch Lomond Print E-mail
Written by Barbara McVeigh   

P1080740SEA youth were off without a hitch (that is, cleat hitch - docks are being worked on!) this past weekend, as youth in Picos hit the waters with Coach Billy Zlotocha. Winds were favorable and lots of folks came to check out the action, including the Vice Commodore of the Loch Lomond Yacht Club. SEA is feeling a warm welcome from everyone, as it feels like we've returned to our roots - SEA youth programs were at Loch Lomond years ago! Thank you to Harbor Master Pat Lopez and his staff at Loch Lomond!

Billy plans to take these youth sailors to their next level of skill, confidence and performance. He's got high expectations and we look forward to seeing these kids rise to their full sailing potential.

Land ho! It's the Farallones! Print E-mail
Written by Barbara McVeigh   

Check out Catherine's video below.

DSCN2183SEA tries to celebrate events in style. And, the Autumnal Equinox tribute this year -  a sail to The Farallones by Tackful (22 Santana) and Summer Solstice (34 Tartan) - surely will be harbored in memory banks for years to come.

Summer Solstice (Skipper John Paul Watts; crew Carlos Grana, Matthias Lux, Adam James & Joe Wong) and Tackful (Skipper Frank Lawler; crew Catherine Boucher & Barbara McVeigh) rendezvous'd under The Gate at 0900, as planned, along with a few surprise harbor porpoises. A sail to The Farallones can be a full day voyage, and then some, as Tackful later, arduously, proved.

Half Moon Bay Planner Print E-mail
Written by Johnpaul Watts   
Are we all aboard for Half Moon Bay, October 6 - 7? And for the Navigation Planner on this Thursday, September 27, at 1900 on Dezzie
Make sure, please, you have registered on-line for Nav Planner before the sail.

 
Great news - Windseeker has confirmed she will go which means the SEA Tartan Fleet will be out there as the Blue Angels and Americas Cup lay claim to the Bay! Windseeker will take and sleep 5 crew; Summer Solstice will take 3 unless there is a couple aboard, then possibly 4. To be sorted out on Thursday along with other details.
I know I'd appreciate a ride from SF as may others. If you can offer, please let us know.

Corinthian Speaker - Kame Richards 3D Sails Print E-mail
Written by Office   

October 17 19:00, Corinthian YC Ballroom
CYC Speaker Series Signup

Kame Richards is a sailmaker and sail designer at Pineapple Sails which he co-founded in 1973.  Pineapple Sails makes racing and cruising sails from their loft in Alameda, California.  Kame is a popular and entertaining lecturer on all aspects of sailing but his talk at CYC will be a little different.   

If you are curious about modern sail design you should not miss this presentation. Kame Richards will demonstrate how he uses sail design software to determine for example:

  • Will the sail fit the rig? (3-D model of the rig)
  • The optimal curves for the luff, foot and leech
  • How does sail cloth selection affect 3D shape?
  • How are gores, reefs and stripes laid out on the 3D model?

This should be a fascinating and informative evening with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

A Flare! My Life For a Flare Print E-mail
Written by Office   

MOBPlease check out this story on Yachting World about an unlikely rescue.

"A sharp lookout and quick action by the crew of a British yacht in the Gibraltar Strait saved the life of a motorboater who had leapt off his burning boat..."

What saved his life? He lit a flare, and a watchful crewmember saw the red dot for long enough to check it out.
Keep your head out of the boat - it could save a life.

Family Sailing - Boatloads of Fun Print E-mail
Written by Barbara McVeigh   

DSCN2159"Faster, Mom!"six year old Kai orders mom on the chase boat. A boatload of kids and dads aboard SEA Jane sail right by!

It was another beautiful SEA Family Sail day on Richardson Bay last Saturday. Moms drove the chase boat, deciding to keep watch over the dads and kids sailing the dinghies (surely moms are good at this task). Provisions upon skiff were well stocked except that bottle of champagne, darn it. But, no matter, one could be giddy enough from The Bay beauty and good juju - memories were surely being brewed!

Dad Martin who just finished SEA's ASA 101 Class shared tiller time with Rich Hodges and 13 year old Devon. Nine year olds Maya and Maia enjoyed the ride!
