Spring Sailing Picnic

  • May 24, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We will be going out in the boats, and coming back in every hour or so.  You can bring a blanket, something to munch on, and socialize on the beach between rides. If anyone is interested in organizing a more comprehensive food plan, let me know.  If Carl comes, I am pretty sure he will bring his blue picnic basket. There also is a little restaurant next to the concession stand.

We will meet on the BEACH next to the Boat Launch & Boat Dock. I will be in the "S.S.S. Andrea". The Andrea is a 22’ US Yachts with a white Hull and an overhung triangular transom. Carl will be there with "Mystic", a forest green Compac 16.

We may have other trailer boats or boats moored on Nokomis in attendance. If you would like to bring your boat and bring people out, come on down! If we get more boats, I can open up more spots.

If everyone gets there at 1PM, you should expect a wait.

Cancellation due to weather or any other reason will be announced by 8AM Saturday morning.

    I really enjoyed today's event. Everyone was very welcoming and easy to join in conversation with. Got on the last sail of the day and it was perfect. Even got to steer - it was great to be out there!

    Sounds like it was a great day! I was there about 1:30 and could see the boats out (brought an extra couple of life jackets), but the weather wasn't looking good and because I didn't find a parking place or see anyone I circled for about 15 minutes then departed.

    Wish I would have stayed - beautiful afternoon after all!

    If we have anyone left on the waiting list, feel free to come later in the afternoon. I am sure we can get you out. If nothing else we will take an extra trip at 5PM, if there are people waiting.

    Marilynn & John are bringing their boat. If you have a lifejacket you would like to bring, please do. They require lifejackets be worn on their boat, and the extra ones they have may not be the ideal fit.

  • Jim H.

    I think we will be able to make spots for those on the waiting list. Will know a little later in the week. I will be bringing my granddaughter Ruby, but she doesn't take up much room :)

    P.S. The "Beach" next to the boat launch & dock is actually a grassy area.

    I feel like I'm missing everything so far, but I have been very busy. Sorry about that... I've used what free time I've been able to pull together to get my own boat set up for the summer. Good news is that she is ready. Jane and I took her on a shakedown cruise today. All is well, I'll start scheduling some events soon.

    Disregard the last comment. We were able to get John onto the wait list.

    May 18, 2014

    • Jim H.

      I am sure that a spot will open up. I think I will delete the double entry John with the Schooner so as to eliminate future problems.

    It appears that meetup accepted my RSVP, but it didn't accept johns as it says he needs to pay. He paid at Gallaghers.

  • Carl S.

    Do you dare sail Mystic ?

    May 13, 2014

    • Anne D.

      Of course! Why wouldn't I? :)

      May 14, 2014

  • Jim H.

    I will be in the 22' keelboat "S.S.S. Andrea" and can take few more people. I will increase the number of spots available.

    May 13, 2014

  • Anne D.

    I just realized this is Memorial Day weekend, and I will be out of town. It is my goal to sail on Mystic this summer, as I haven't been on her since the Medicine Lake incident, but apparently this won't be the time.

  • Donna B.

    Jim, I think this time I'll bring a snack to share as I have an event that day in the morning. Also I'm leaving for North Carolina tomorrow.

    1 · May 5, 2014

  • Donna B.

    Looking forward to this. Let me know what I can bring.

    May 5, 2014

    • Jim H.

      Well Donna, you can bring a snack to share, or, organize the food for a big picnic.

      May 5, 2014

  • Carl S.

    I am bringing Mystic.

    May 5, 2014

    • Jim H.

      OK, I'll figure you can take 3 x 4 trips = 12 spots. I can take 2 x 4 trips = 8 spots. Counting you & I that's 22 spots

      May 5, 2014

    • Jim H.

      If I take the Nutmeg or more boats come, I will add more spots.

      May 5, 2014

  • Carole

    This will be my first time meeting everyone and I'm looking forward to getting to know you and some fun on the water.

    Carl, Are you bringing your boat?

    May 5, 2014

  • Trish B.

    I'd really like to come to the picnic. I can't join until I pay dues. The auto pay form attached won't accept my payment. I will be bringing payment to the meeting on Wednesday. Please add me - there are only three spots left. Thanks. -Trish

    May 5, 2014

    • Jim H.

      I put you down Trish. You should be able to go to your member page under "Members" and hit the "Pay Dues" button.

    Jim, we're prepping the Macgregor for a makeover. I don't think it'll be ready by this date but will attend as crew if not.
