St. Pat's Party

The R/C was cancelled due to marginal weather, although it turned out quite nice!  Our annual feast saw a modest crowd, including a few new members, enjoy the always esquisite meal cooked up by Al Cornell and Tom Booley, with the help of a team of prep cooks too numerous to name.
Lots of photos on the Slide Show!  

New Year's Recap

New Years Eve party for 2014 was a small gathering of friends who shared stories, laughter and good food. It was also a celebration for Marilyn Amador's birthday.

Happy and Blessed New Year.

Commodore's Dinner

About 40 members gathered at the Blue Water for our annual dinner, enjoying good food, good company, and buying somer fine items in the Silent Auction.  We were even able to welcome a new member.  Photos can be viewed on the Slide Show.

One of the important functions of the dinner is to allow members to vote for next year's Board of Directors.  If you missed the dinner, please arreange voting over the next week (see above).

Nov 1
Halloween Party

The usual suspects gathered to mingle and scare each others.  A good time had by all can be seen in the Slide Show.

Oct 18
Race Weekend &
Al's Octoberfest 

The RC fleet had a great race day, with more wind and less kelp than usual, ending the regular racing series for the year.  The Ocean fleet was stymied by the USCG, who had the river bar closed all day due to the strong swell and general lumpiness.

Octoberfest featured Al's special recipe that turns plain old hot dogs into an epicurian delight.  Photos available here.

Race Weekend
Oct 4
Three boats turned out for a close contest in the RCs, while only two boats headed into the Ocean to find a nice breeze, only to see it fail on the way to House Rock.

Race Weekend
Aug 23 Recap

We did manage to get a two boat (plus guest) turnout for RC racing, but the Ocean sailors were doing other things...

Race Weekend
& Hot Dog BBQ
Jul 26th Recap

The RC fleet saw a good turnout of six skippers, facing good steady winds and not too much kelp, resultiing in close racing by all.
The Ocean fleet could only field one crew, so Latis went out to find the usual light winds at the buoy.  Determined to see some wind, she motored about one mile farther out, and crosses the ever-present windline, resulting in a great sail in robust winds and some very raucous waves, drenching the entire crew several times.  All smiles.

The usual group of hardcore Club supporters had a pleasant time chomping down dogs and trading stories.  There was a sobering note included, as the Club has cleared out a corner of the Clubhouse, to trade storage for a generous rent reduction.  We need to grow the Club to reach sustainability!

Race Recap
July 12th
The closing day of the Spring Season saw six skippers racing RC yachts in light wind, with no a small amount of kelp, always a big influence on the results.

The Ocean racers had three boats on the starting line, with weather conditions vastly better than forecast.  Flat seas, steady winds, and warm air combined to create a memorable day.

Anniversary Regatta
June 28

The Ocean fleet crumbled at the last minute due to a skipper shortage, and there's no news about the R/C racing.  Check back for details.

Race Weekend
June 21

Keep an eye out for disruptions to our usual "every two week" race schedule, due to odd tides.

Race Weekend
& Potluck
June 14th

The weather was less than nice offshore, so the Ocean fleet didn't race.  No info yet available about the R/C racing or the Potluck.

Party at the Port

The sailors managed a small turnout for the RC racers and the Ocean Fleet saw variable conditions for their race.  After being stalled at the starting line, the boats ended up in 20kts+ surfing at big speed, and generally having a thrilling and wet day.

The Club Oyster booth sold out early, so there were a lot of hungry people at the Port for this annual event.  The parking ot was full, and there was lots of activity all weekend.

Pictures are on the Slide Show!

Race Weekend
May 10th
Burger BBQ Potluck Recap

The weekend got off to a bad start with only one skipper showing up for the R/C racing.  A big improvement saw two boats head to the ocean for a joust, with perfect weather - bright sun, warm air, and plenty of wind and waves - to see a photo finish after six miles of racing.

The day ended with a great BBQ.  

Pictures are on the Slide Show!

Race Weekend
April 26 Recap

Another great RC race, but another marginal weather day for the ocean.  Might have gotten a race in, but there was no crew available for the two boats that might have gone out!

 Photos of the RC racing are HERE.

Opening Day
April 12
Chicken BBQ & Potluck

The RCs held a spirited race, but the weather was didn't cooperate fwith the Ocean fleet.
Pictures are HERE.

St. Pat's Day

Once again, the Club threw a great party, with everyone getting their fill of delicious Corned Beef, Potatoes, Carrots, Cabbage and desserts.  Special to thanks to our host Jim Relaford and the principal cook, Tom Bouley.  Many others also contributed with prep and cleanup work.
Pictures will no doubt show up soon.

Valentine Day
