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!

All together we counted 6 adults and 5 kids, including 4 adults with sailing experience for an exciting day on the bay.

Youth Camper to Counselor - A Real Voyage! Print E-mail
Written by Pierce Reisinger, Youth Counselor   

P1080401I started sailing when I was very, very young. My parents owned a boat in Loch Lomond Marina right next to a carpenter who lived on a sailing boat.

She, her husband and her son, had traveled all the way around the world on their sailboat. She was originally from England and settled here in the Bay Area. The woman, Frances, also owned a small sailboat that she would attach to the back of her bigger boat. A few times a year she would offer to take me out on this small boat. Though I was too young to remember the kind of boat it actually was, I still had fun every time I went.

Alas, all good things must come to an end. Eventually Frances went off to explore the globe again and I, left to my own devices, remained here in California. My parents did not give up so easily, however.

SEA Youths Sail to Oracle Racing Base! Print E-mail
Written by Barbara McVeigh   

On Wednesday over 20 SEA youths sailed across The Bay to visit the Oracle Racing Base. We sailed in two groups with two boats. As we crossed the Bay we watched the international AC45 boats arriving in preparation for this week's World Series AC45s.

After a dodgy anchoring attempt, we finally settled in and got a ride on one of Oracle's many Protectors. Inside we had a wonderful tour of the base, including the many workshop containers that help keep the boats tuned up. Highlights included the AC33 trimaran that won the cup, as well as glimpses of the monstrously large AC72 being built. We finished the day off with a shower filled sail back across a lumpy Bay. All smiles all day.
