Here it is 2018, One of our big goals for 2018 is to re-brand SAIL. Many of you feel that SAIL should be promoting the sport of Sailing in our portion of Area F. The new web site will do just that, with an emphasis not only on the clubs and their particular fleets but also the different classes that race in this area.
It is also time to renew your memberships. However that portion of this current website does not function.PLEASE USE THE PRINTABLE FORMS AND MAIL THEM IN WITH YOUR PAYMENT! The PHRF Form works but not the online membership form.
Stay tuned for some really big improvements.
It’s that time of year again, the snow is starting to fly in the mountains and our sailing seasons are coming to an end. I’ve posted the agenda, last years minutes and 2018 ballot on the website, just follow the link “Annual Meeting” above and you can download the files that you need.
The meeting is on the first Saturday in November, this year the 4th. As Usual it will be held at the Cherry Creek Meadows Clubhouse, 8821 East Amherst, Denver, 80231.
Hope see everybody there!
Looks like we are on our way to another fantastic sailing season in Colorado. We have completed two of the Keelboat Tour races, The DSA Hornblower/Shootout and the Carter Lake Sailing Club Race Weekend. We have also completed three of the dinghy tour races with the two mentioned above and the ReUnion at Union Sailing Club.
We have also completed three sets of RC training at several clubs here in Colorado and one club in Missouri, as well as an abbreviated half day seminar at Union.
Next on the calendar is the Aspen Open, July 15 & 16. Here are the links to the NOR’s and to register. www.aspenyachtclub.com
Next in the pipeline will be the Dillon Open and the Santana 20 nationals at Dillon. Stay tuned!
Thank you to the 44 folks that showed up for the first of our 2017 winter seminars. As usual the changes to the RRS are not clear as ever. So if you wish to study the changes further here is the link to US Sailings explanation of the rules:
Hope to see you next month for our Mock protest hearing. This one is crazy and involves the DSA commodore and RC chairman. Watch for details of the February Seminar.
Here we go again another year with new challenges and expectations. We again this year will have the winter seminars with the first one on the 18th of January at the usual place, Brooklyns’. The subject this month will be the Recently issued Racing Rules of Sailing for 2017-2020. There are a few significant changes. Come hear Tom Downing and Paul Kresge discuss these changes.
Just a quick reminder that the annual meeting is this Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 10:00 AM at the Cherry Creek Meadows Clubhouse, 8821 East Amherst, Denver, CO, 80231
Hope to see you there!
Let’s welcome our new Commodore, Curtis Rist to the Board. We have several new faces on the board and are working towards a rather spectacular 2016 sailing season. We are working on a few changes and are looking to add value to individual and club memberships. More to follow!
The calendar has been updated to reflect all of the regattas that were discussed at the annual meeting. I will add more as the come in.
To start thinking about sailing we have our four Winter SAIL seminars beginning with our first one on the 20th on January. The subject for this seminar is racing in Antigua. Come enjoy an evening with fellow sailors and dream of warm water sailing.
