TSC/BoatHouse Sailing School boat upgrade plan! WE NEED YOUR HELP!

 

The Lake Thunderbird BoatHouse sailing instructors have presented a plan to upgrade the teaching fleet.  After much research into various manufacturers it has been decided that the two boats that fit our needs are the RS Tera, a one-person 9’ sloop weighing 86 lbs with a 4’ beam and the RS Zest which is a 1-3 person 12’ sloop weighing in at 150 lbs with a 5’ beam.

24th Annual Jerry Layton Regatta Cancelled!

Thunderbird Sailors,
The forecast is for cold weather, high winds and probable rain. This is not a good forecast for racing, especially a fun race where we transfer skippers. So, the 24th annual Layton Memorial Regatta is cancelled this year. We will try to run it earlier in the fall next year. This also means that Gray Graham will keep the Layton Regatta title until next Fall!! Please continue to show Captain Graham the respect that comes with this title.

IN THE MEANTIME, DO REMEMBER, THE HIRAM DOUGLAS REGATTA ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4!
