Austin Sailing Society Monthly Meetup

  • This location is shown only to members

    The same place, just the name has changed.    The Pizza Bistro (used to be Mangia Pizza)  Is where we do  Our Second Tuesday Happy Hour.  About 7 PM in the Little Itally Room.

     I'm gonna' start with basic vocabulary for new-bees so you will, at least, have been exposed to the terms which is way better than, "pull that string there - no the other string."  Otherwise, tell me what YOU wanna' know or else I'll make something up!  I know a bunch, and I've probably been there, done that, screwed it up in a couple of different ways. Tell us what YOU wanna' know and we'll meander in that direction.

       See ya' there, Captain Greg

    I really enjoyed getting to know a few more of the members and discussing sailing. I'm looking forward to being more involved and sailing with this group.

    A great start is for the skipper to identify the halyard line - you know, that "do not touch" line while sailing? :-)

    Great idea Greg! Can we also review for newbies sailing etiquette for crew and skippers (who should do what for the other when going sailing - courtesy etc.). This is in response to a review by someone who recently sailed (October) on a skipper's boat.

      Fred, I read those emails...LOL! I certainly want to be "up" on what to do and what NOT to do!

    Ahoy Captain Greg! I am one of those new-bees you mentioned! I possess some sailing terminology. I do know to be careful of THE BOOM! I steer quite well too. I've crewed a few times with members of AYC and had a few sailing lessons from same. I am wanting to join up with some folks who love sailing as much as I do!

    Fair sails,

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
