It was a quiet weekend. I think most people were frightened away by the weather forecast. Friday saw Cheeseburger splashed back into the water and put back in her slip. We also got a call from Martha saying that the water is off on the docks and bathrooms.
Next weekend are race 5 & 6 of the Spring racing series. So far the weather is looking great. The next club event is in 2 weeks on May 28th, Memorial day weekend. Start marking your calendar. This is the “Blessing of the Fleet” and sail to Clarksville. We line up just south of the entrance to the marina, we have a wreath in the water and we have all of our boats pass by and drop flower petals in/near the wreath as we pass by. After the Blessing, we continue our sail. Many of us will continue to sail up to Clarksville where we anchor overnight and then have dinner at the pizza pub in town. Retuning on Sunday. For those who just want to day sail, you can drive up to Clarksville and join us for dinner there. Next week I will ask for a head count so that we know how many will be sailing up and how many I need to make reservations for at the Pizza Pub. We should have a good size fleet coming to Clarksville and plenty of dinghies for transportation to shore.
Have a great week sailors.
