Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!! We saw some sailing on Austin Lake, some fires and loads of fantastic SW Mitten weather!! We are at week #5 and the weather looks great for tonight!! Partly cloudy, 68 degrees and a west wind 15 mph….and the water temp is comfortable!! Should be a great night for sailing!
A reminder that we are soon approaching race dates in which we either don’t have a committee boat, or enough sailors manning the committee boat. Please review the documents I emailed to everyone and see what date you might be able assist the fleet on.
Hey Gang – can you believe we are at week #4 of the 2017 Spring Series?? Hopefully, our casualties from last week are doing okay.
The forecast for tomorrow doesn’t look to promising so pay attention the the FB page for announcements.
From the Weather Channel just now – Tuesday, May 23, 2017 Forecast calls for overcast skies with rain showers at times. Thunder possible. Low 54F. Winds NNE at 5 to 10 mph, gusts to 21 mph . Chance of rain 50%.
Too bad we aren’t racing tonight
Looks like the weather may finally be on our side! Tuesday night’s weather looks great for sailing…mid eighty degree temps, slight clouds, SSW winds at 16 mph….should be great!!
I will have membership forms for you to fill out at Brewster’s after racing so bring your checkbook if you have yet to pay for 2017.
Enjoy the weather early this week!
Due to inclement weather conditions, racing is again cancelled for the night. All interested parties are welcome to show up at Brewster’s at 7 PM. We have the South room to ourselves tonight.
Due to the unusually low wind/water temperatures along with higher than average winds, racing for Week 1, May 2, 2017 had been cancelled. We will still be meeting at Brewster’s on Portage Road for anyone interested at 7 PM so we can brag about, “we wanted to sail, but everyone else didn’t!”
For all you “hardy” sailing fans out there, we are SCHEDULED to begin the Spring 2017 racing series on Tuesday, May 2, 2017. Current weather outlook does NOT look good, but stay tuned. I believe we will be meeting at Brewster’s on Portage Road again this year unless notified otherwise. Will be meeting around 7 PM if we do NOT sail, otherwise immediately after sailing – if we do sail.
