Monthly Meeting, January 19, 2019 at 6:00PM

Program:

“Luffing it up with roaches and leeches with smart pigs, scallops, heads and telltales” by Phil Moershel

Most boats get delivered with two sails, which is really all you need. Or is it? There are so many other sails out there that can be deployed to cover a range of wind conditions.

Learn about a variety of sail types and how to set them, trim them, and douse them from the winner of the Spinnaker division, none other than our own Phil Moershel.

Following the program will be a group discussion on where to buy sails online when you’re ready to make some additions to your sail loft.

Sailing Fleet Fundraiser update!

Happy New Year and Congratulations donors!

The RS Sailing fundraiser has been a terrific success. Our goal to raise $50,000 for a new training fleet has been met and exceeded! Thanks to a wonderful donation from the family of Lake Patrolman Hiram Douglas, the goal was met. Thank you Carla Pryor and all your family.

Presently we have received $53,594.48 from 40 donors including $16,000 from the LTEF/TSC/BOATHOUSE combined. The average individual donation was over $989! We have also had SEVEN individual boats (all 4 Zests and 3 of the 8 Teras) sponsored which will include naming privileges. All funds will be needed to purchase the boats and materials for storage systems for the new boats. Thank you letters/receipts will be mailed to each donor in the near future.  Donations are still being accepted.
