This Week

A few days left to sail - - - then what?

With a few days left, sailing options are still open but getting scarce.  We have bad news.  And good news.

BAD NEWS - one day less of sailing, because we've heard from the marina that we must pull the boats out on Thursday Sep 30 (rather than Friday).



The new day of hauling out the fleet is Thursday.   There are two shifts where volunteers are needed:

Friday is off, then the sailors start to work on the boats, with some inside work space available all during October: 10/2  10/9  10/16  10/23  10/30

Picnic Sail - Sat Sep 25 - gives you a totally new perspective on sailing, and on the delight of Narragansett Bay dressed in early fall colors. We prepare the boats (at 11am), then all sail away from Edgewood at noon to follow the ebb tide out. Picnic lunch off Barrington Beach (with a cruising-class keelboat on station as "Mother Ship" with amenities).  Then work back to Edgewood on the early part of the returning flood tide.  Plan to be on moorings by 7pm.  [Foul weather day is 9/26]

Pot Luck meet, greet and become an Alum. - Sun Sep 26 - 6pm-8pm in social room at Club.  Newcomers 2010 become real “Alums” of the Sailing School.  Sailors who started at Edgewood before that, who are already Alums, greet the new kids.  All have a cheerful time of it.  Plenty of action:

  • 2010 Awards and trophies: outstanding new sailor, and outstanding racing crew.
  • Good food (bring something to share)
  • Extra copies available of hats and text books and ESS t-shirts.
  • Opportunity to give the Instructors a piece of your mind; or say thanks for a swell time. 
  • Sign-up sheet available for Fall classes and volunteer days.
  • Forms to access an Edgewood Yacht Club social membership – and find out what all those people who got to use the Center Hall were having such a good time about.
  • Meet EYC members and share the Edgewood Yacht Club family hospitality, and enjoy football and football and football on the big-screen.

2010 Hauling the Fleet - Thurs Sep 30 - 5pm (join us when you can get there)  -

At the end of the week, volunteers needed to clear the boats, un-step spars, help guide the boats off the crane onto trailers, and set the Fleet gently ashore, and start laying out maintenance projects.   MEET AT PORT EDGEGOOD marina.  Late arrivals welcome!

  • Meanwhile, to brush up skills, there's Coaching for individual private-lessons in the afternoons Mon-Sat (appointment).
