We are happy to announce that Frank Lawler (namesake of the Annual Lawler Cup) and Cathy Stierhoff, long time SEA members, former dinghy and Intermediate Sailing instructors, and racers, have donated their Santana 22, Tackful to SEA! This new boat is in addition to our existing Keelboat Kitty Sark which is available for checkout and charter!
Tackful is a stout sailing boat, easy to handle, not very complicated. She is the perfect step up for our students/members who want to go beyond the Catalinas on a keelboat. Plus, her engine is accessible from the cockpit, something those of you who are familiar with Shockwave will appreciate!
If any of you who were checked out on Shockwave want to now get checked out on Tackful, let me know and I'll put you in touch with boatkeeper, Mark Swanson.
RSVP if you are interested!
A Keelboat dockside class will be held if there is enough interest. This is the first step to being able to do co-op Mentoring charters on the keelboats, then get checked out, then be able to charter the boat. Please contact us soon if you would be interested in doing this all day course and we'll put together a class date for the spring time.
A great time to come and get to know Tackful from bottom to top will be when she is hauled on March 10th to be scrubbed and painted March 11 from 11 am- 3 pm. Email for more details of how you can help!
