    I think the maiden voyage for the small boat sailing group was a rousing success! I had great fun and it was nice to meet everyone. Have a great Mem day weekend! :-)

    Thanks for turning out everyone. It was a far better day for a sail than I thought it would be.

    Don't let iffy weather deter you. If all we do is meet each other and go out for coffee it'll be worth the trip. See you all tomorrow.

      I'm really do prefer to kayak in fair weather but your idea of doing coffee isn't a bad idea if the weather stays bad. See you there

    I cannot do Sunday, but it does look like the better day and it can certainly be a rain date for this.if folks want to go then. I will be there Sat at any rate unless it's just pouring.

    Sunday would work for me

    Hi Folks, the weather forecast for Saturday at this point doesn't look very promising. Any chance to reschedule it for Sunday. It's supposed to be fantastic weather. Just a thought. Great day your way! :-)

    I believe I misunderstood. Is it still OK for me to join you even if I just do "regular" kayaking? I have no idea how to sail a kayak. Looks really cool though :)

      Sherri. Yes, it is OK to attend if you are simply a paddler. Here is a 'Welcome' message I sent out a while that will help explain things. You just joined, so did not get it at the time I sent it: Welcome all to Small Boat Sailing,
      Thanks for joining the group. I hope to meet you all soon.
      As you can see, this group is geared to folks with sail rigs for their boats. Some of you are have them and some of you don’t. If you don’t, you can come along and paddle and see what sailing a canoe, kayak or other small boat is all about. Depending on who attends our events you may even get a chance to try out a sailing boat. I hope that seeing and maybe even sailing, will pique your interest in trying out this terrific way to enjoy your boat.
      So, one and all, please consider joining in our first event, May 24. Go to http://www.meetup.com...­ for all the details, and don’t forget to RSVP if you are attending.

    I'd love to come, but someone would either need to lend me a kayak, or come by with a pickup for me to toss mine into.
