Wind Orchid Call for Crew

From: Jon J.
Sent on: Tuesday, July 6, 2010 9:12 AM
Hello Everyone;

I sail "Wind Orchid," a Catalina 350 out of Paradise Marina in Deale, Maryland. If you would like to sail with us, let me know by the ?Respond By? date for that particular outing. Sailing experience is not required. Just looking for friendly people that want to sail.
Here is how it works: You let me know by the ?Respond By? date if you want to sail on any of the dates offered below. I collect the names of those interested. On or shortly after the respond by date, I?ll announce the manifest (i.e. the list of those selected to go). If you make the manifest, I will send you a sailing instruction for the outing.

We have started the Wednesday night Herrington Harbor Race Series. We cast of at 6 PM and are back to the dock before 10 PM. Am looking for three deck crew and one tactition/navigator for the races. Again, no experience is required to sign on for this. Last Wednesday, we did very well on a short course in light winds and we finished at the tail end of the leader pack.
Will be conducted an American Sailing Association Basic Keelboat Sailing (ASA 101) class from on the weekend of 24-25 July. So far, five folks have signed on (Turner and Kyle, Bob and Cheryl, and Pam) leaving just one slot remaining. Costs for this courses is $200 plus $39 for ASA membership (if required) and around $20 for the course book.
Am planning on doing a combination ASA 101 / ASA 103 class from Aug 20-22. This class will take all day for three days. We?ll cram quite a bit of info into this class. Cost is $250 plus $39 for ASA membership and $20 for the book.
Manifests for Upcoming Opportunities (boat is full for these events):

July 7 HHSA Race Series, race 5. Manifest: Lori Jones, Nancy Mitchell, Katie Ruth, Cori Perrella, Erik Reedholm.
