Bring on the 2015 sailing season and the BOD
Registration is now open for the Bayview One Design Regatta on the Detroit River May 29-31. The Wayfarers will again be sailing right off the club on the river. There’s nothing quite like quick tacking at the club break wall with a crowd of people watching and cheering (or jeering if the tack doesn’t go well). This is a great weekend of racing to get the 2015 sailing season going. And the socializing is equally as rewarding with fun entertainment and excellent sponsors including Michigan beer from Bells Brewery, rum from Mount Gay and wine from Barefoot Wine & Bubbly. Bayview is excited to have the Wayfarers as part of the racing lineup and treat us well.
For more more details and an enthusiastic rundown of how the regatta works, email Nick Seraphinoff at email@example.com. To find out more about the regatta from Bayview and register online, go to: http://www.yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=1260 You can register without paying.
The Michigan Wayfarers look forward to a solid turnout at this always fun and rewarding regatta. Bring on the 2015 sailing season!!!
VICE COMMODORE’S WINTER TALE Chip Cunningham, W1321, Solje
Prologue: Because I (Nick Seraphinoff) had to leave Detroit right after five boats arrived from England, I assigned my man Chip to take the boats to the warehouse for storage. He had to take the boats one at a time on road bases which was a big job and I said to myself, "Thank goodness I have a guy like Chip to do this.” UNTIL I GOT THIS E MAIL FROM HIM!
Nick, my man,
First rule of sailing: Protect the Equipment.
Second rule of sailing:
You Are the Most Important Equipment!
I’ll get back with you to find out how you’re doing (with your bruised ribs). But this may take your mind off your injury. The boats got moved OK today—only one thing ....
