Rhumb Runners Winter Race Series

Sunday Sunfish Series

Let me just say that Paula was really disappointed that she didn't get to put her fashion show on today (10/30). She had brought all of the latest designs for keeping yourself warm and toasty during those winter months on the water.  ;-) There were so few of us today that we postponed Paula strutting her stuff down the runway so we'll plan for it again before the January race series.

Two of Annie Davidson's sail school students Kathy Longacre and and Marge Keller showed up which really turned out great.
 We talked about what they needed, and it seemed they both just required tiller time to practice their developing skills, so I put them in Prams. They loved it as it gave them the opportunity to be at the helm and figure things out for themselves with just a little coaching. Once they were both comfortable they headed out to the Bay! Jim and Annie were them in the safety boat. So, that made it a good day, and these two women are ready to take Sunfish on. I truly hope they both join BCYC.

Melissa McCue went out in a pram for a while too, then Susan Starr took over and headed out to join Kathy and Marge. Melissa hopped on the safety boat to help Jim while Annie and Susan headed out in Annie's Snipe for an pleasant afternoon sail.  Paula and another Windlass new to Sunfish, Iwona Pralat got in a few practice races. The wind had laid down compared to yesterday making it a perfect sailing day.

As I mentioned last week, Paula and I will do our best to try and get in a Sunday Sail in but with the holidays approaching it may be tough to do. I want to thank everyone who participated in the classes and I hope you will consider taking on the Winter Race Series we have planned for you. It may be selfish on our part but we really want to see each of you succeed and learn to love small boat sailing/racing as much as we do.

In the Service of Rhumb Runners,
