Good day fun seekers, sailors and coaches!

Sunday, August 11 is looking really good for finishing up what we started!   No wedding in the forecast, either.. ha ha..  So, let’s get together and complete the experiential part of our learn to sail class.  Arrrrrgh,  ARE YOU WITH ME?

This second session will conclude the original class we started on June 15!  The class will be limited to the original participants with maybe a few quick study add-on students (and, yes, you can bring a rowdy cheering section and some guests who can help to help start/finish the races).  As a future benefit, all graduates from this class will be eligible to join in on upcoming open Sunfish Regattas, too. So, grab your life jackets and let’s go! 

What we will do is meet at beautiful Portage Lakes Yacht Club on Sunday Morning bright and early (and a little hung over, maybe from my gig the day before) and sail our Sunfish sailboats from 10a to 2p. 

We will have a short review to start, then as a group, we will rig and sail the boats going through a series of guided and coached exercises and races (i.e. sailing a figure eight course into the wind, then advance to more challenging out and back sailing and a variety of race courses to help develop !! Yes, races!  And, of course, prizes for the winners!! And possibly a little partying afterwards….

So, Captain Andy wants to know..  Arrrrrgh,  ARE YOU WITH ME? (RSVP for you French bastards!)  Note: Please reply to all so we all know and state your name so we all can see who can or cannot attend this most joyous event!  I will create Meet up events upon your kind reply so we can track on Meetup.. thank you!

May the winds always be at your back,

Andy

      Hi Lynn! Yes, this is the 2nd half of the first class that took place in June but got snafu'd by a wedding that was scheduled at the yacht club the same day. So, I was limiting the attendee's to the original group this time... unless you already are adept. I will be offering the class again soon. Are you available on both Saturday's and Sundays?

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.
