Summer Sailstice 2014 Wrap! Print Email
Written by Barbara McVeigh

Summer Sailstice 2014!

Thanks to all of the sailors who joined SEA's Summer Sailstice fun - our first year to officially participate! It was great to celebrate the international sailing day on our waters in the San Pablo Bay. We sailed near the Marin Islands though watched the water carefully so not to get stuck in the mud - with the ebb tide we had to keep a watchful eye for water depth in some areas - all good training to ensure we connect to all the variables in the San Pablo Bay where currents can be strong and we have many shallow areas . . . BUT, we've got the waters to ourselves!! We feel we're in on the best kept secret in Marin with our surrounding island reserves and views of Mount Tam!

Thanks to John Arndt for supplying SEA folks with some snazzy t-shirts to commemorate the day. After small boat sailing fun, we had a bbq, drinks and great salad from Jane's garden. It's always great to share. Thanks Loch Lomond Marina for your support!

Work Party & Afternoon Member Sail - July 12! Print Email
Written by SEA

DSCN2159A big thanks to all who joined the work party:

The Shockwave got a new main halyard; the old one now begins a new life as teaching line.

Minor rigging improvements to a couple of the Catalinas were made. We added reefing lines onto the mainsails as well. Salvageable parts were removed from the damaged mast.

Some fiberglass repair and strengthening of the laser bow got started. 

All in all, it was a good and productive day.

Thursday Night Fun Races at Loch Lomond! Print Email
Written by Office

Races will be on Thursday nights, run by Paul or somebody else, the LLM assistant harbor master. (He may race, too)

We may take the Trawler out for committee boat, so those not actually racing can come along (good for those friends you want to introduce to SEA/sailing!)

Our pilot program was a pleasant success with 2 catalinas going around the marks and with one of the marks going around a Catalina.

Next Race(s): Thursday, September 4th and Thursday, September 18th
Time: arrive promptly at 6 (or earlier), get boats rigged.  Races start at 6:30!  You'd better know how to rig your boat, or sail with someone who does!
Racing: 6:30 to 7:30
Races will be for fun, and may be different kinds (I'm told Paul wants to do a hare and hounds race, which I'm not sure how that goes!!!  but should be fun!) Pot luck back at the docks after.  Bring something (anything!) to share.  Andy's has good things!
Boats: 3 Catalinas, 2 (yes, we have the second one!) Capris. 
All will race together.  Yes, the Capri is lighter and has an advantage in light wind, but Catalinas stand up a bit better in heavy wind....

2-3 people per boat, your choice.
So, get hold of each other, put together a pair (or 3) and see you out there!

You will need to be a member of SEA, and have a Sail Card.  

Cost of racing: One Sail Card slot signed off.

Please give me a holler ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) to let me know you are coming.  If this is popular, we will continue with 2 per month (water issues!)  May even get kids out there in Picos with a separate start.

Don't worry if you don't know anything about racing.  Like I said, this is for fun only!  And a GREAT learning experience (want to know why we stress sailing to windward?  You are about to find out!)

Upcoming Open Sails
