Welcome to the new year! Taking a moment to introduce myself, Matthew Thompson, as the new D21 Secretary. Looking forward to meeting those I haven’t yet and stepping up to the challenge. I owe D21 a fair bit both for the fun and for the sailing skills I’ve gained racing with you all. I’d like to send a big thanks to our previous two secretaries. Kurt Holtze and Erik Ahlquist have put in lots of time as secretaries and have both helped get me off on the right foot!
There should be plenty to look forward to this year! Planning has started for our events and regular racing. We’ll be updating the calendar on the events page as we go along. Some will notice that I’ve added a second calendar to help coordinate with neighboring districts. You’ll see a green “out of district” calendar displayed alongside our blue “D21″ calendar.
New events at new locations are being considered, fresh energy applied to old standbys, and our good friends at DSSA will hopefully be back. This season should have plenty of fun for all levels of sailor. Please stay tuned and keep that sun shining.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the water soon!
