It’s that time again where the weather is warming up and people are starting to think of sailing again. I have updated the TCLA (Twin Cities Sailing Association) for the 2015 season click here. The early bird is setup for a discounted rate until April 1st
Fingers crossed that what we’re seeing this week is the start of something we’re all interested in, spring! Amazing what a bit of sun and 50 degree weather means to us up in the north.
Starting to get calendars up and dates figured out. If you’re interested in a specific date, location, or style for an event – get in touch! I’m open to any and all ideas, we just need excited and driven people to help lead the charge. We have the knowledge to get anything done, but we need your energy and legwork to get things rolling.
The first and only event on our calendar so far is the annual White Bear Regatta, June 14th. Be there or be square. Big shout out to Ryan, Martin, and John for taking the initiative, getting started, and planning something. I love the the self-advocacy. We need a Smokey the Bear mascot that reminds people that, “only you can create events worth going to!” We’re northish, maybe a penguin?
Some incorrect rumors have been floating around that no storage is available at Wayzata this year. We’re a little behind this year but the program will be the same. Renewals for spaces will go out this week, and then any spaces not renewed will be filled off of the waitlist. We’ve been a bit behind at the WCSC with the transition so pardon the delay. Look for a new rack at Calhoun this summer as well, the gang there sounds excited. Remember that a good trailer is still the best way to store your boat – always ready to roll when the breeze is good.
The newest Laser Sailor will come out next month, hopefully we’ll get an update from our snowbirds Lars and John who took the time to head down to the winter circuit in Florida. Fun watching the results. Pardon our jealousy, it was mostly tempered by living vicariously through you two!
Start checking out those lines, trailers, and gear. If you aren’t quite in the spirit yet, head over to Blake’s Annual Ice-Out contest and get excited from your couch.
See you all on the water soon!
