Freebie Member Sail April 17 Print Email

Shockwave 2016 April 17

Freebie Member Sail - April 17th

Warm weather and light wind made for a relaxing day of boating in sunny Marin County. Fourteen members and friends met up at the docks to mess around in boats and have a fun day.

The rowing dory was taken on multiple excursions onto San Rafael Bay.

Sailors on the Shockwave and a Catalina sailed out to Red Rock and worked back against the current.

Some people devoted some time on the dock tending to projects.

The day was capped with an introduction to the Kitty Sark for those who were interested in sailing the gaff rigged wooden catboat.

Many thanks to everybody for the day, and especially to John for driving the safety-boat.

We want them to know how much we appreciate them!

We will also review the year's accomplishments and challenges. There have been many things to celebrate and discuss.

It's election time! A new Board of Directors will be elected to help steer SEA into its 33rd year. And, we look forward to a big celebration next year!
