Spring Series Week 6 – June 6, 2017

Hope you have been enjoying this beautiful weather!!
WOW, we are at week #6 of the 2017 Spring Series with tomorrow’s weather looking fairly decent and hopefully those forecasted isolated t-storms will bypass our lake area *B-) cool 
Winds should be around NNE10-15, and temps in the mid-seventies.
We are looking ahead for the summer pontoon boat party – after looking at the various regatta calendars, we have come up with two possible dates – July 23 or August 20.  We are also looking for a host house to accommodate everyone for dinner
Let me know if you are interested in being the host house for the pontoon float and you can choose which Sunday we gather.

Spring Series Week 5 – May 30, 2017

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.

Spring Series Week 4 – May 23, 2017

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 *:( sad

Spring Series Week 3 – May 17, 2017

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!

Spring Series 2017 Begins Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

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.

Photos Page Back Up!

A big thanks to our WordPress expert, Dan Troup for getting the Photos page of the ALCA website back up.  He also added a sub-menu to the Photo tab on the top menu so you can jump directly to a particular nights photos (instead of scrolling down).

Thanks Dan!
