Winter Series, big boats at HIYC. Some Experience needed
Come sail some big boats, 22' or more in the HIYC winter series. You need to be comfortable on a boat and familiar with basic sailboat terms. There are some skippers that need crew and are willing to take Meetup sailors. I will assign you to a boat with a knowledgeable skipper before you arrive. The skipper will provide you with a lifejacket and some instruction, often drinks and snacks too, but you are welcome to bring some along too. The skippers are COUNTING ON YOU, so if you RSVP you MUST show up!!!!!!! When people no show, the boat owners don't let me bring Meetup people anymore, so don't ruin it for the other 300 people in this group by being a no show!!!!! The race starts at noon, out on the water. You must arrive at 10:30 to meet your skipper, get oriented to the boat and your role, help t rig the boat then and it takes 15-20 minutes to sail out to the starting line. The race will last 1-2 hours, so plan to be there until 2:30pm. We usually hang out, drink and talk sailing around the fire pit afterwards, and you are welcome to stay for that if you like. Dress warm and in layers, seriously, BUNDLE UP. Wear synthetic materials like polyester and fleece. Dress more warmly than you think you need to, it is SO MUCH colder on the water than on land, especially sailing UPWIND. Bring gloves, hat and sunglasses too. You are welcome to bring drinks and snacks too. Harbor Island Yacht Club is a private gated club. You will need a gate code when you arrive, or use the call box to ask someone to dial you in. Text me for the gate code the morning of the event,[masked]. I plan to connect you with your assigned skipper before the event so you have contact info and meeting plans specific to your boat.
