Sailors Prepare for Summer Season
Next sailors meeting: Thursday, April 10

If early participation is any indication, the KYC Thursday evening sailing program appears to be on the road to success.

“This is awesome,” said Sailing Fleet Captain Jim Dahl during the sail-measuring session on Saturday, “Nine people have signed up so far.” Nine boats were represented at the sail-measuring, a step in obtaining a PHRF handicap rating from PHRF-NW in Seattle. That’s enough to make a fun sailing event.

Dahl also reports, “Good news from the USCG regarding our Sailing Program on Thursday nites. I applied for a Marine Event Permit if required. The USCG has responded by letter. We are clear to go and no event permit is required. I will keep letter on file for the future.”

The next meeting for sailors and crew will be Thursday, April 10, 7 PM at the KYC Clubhouse. This session will focus on the basics of racing rules, safety, crew duties, KYC sailing instructions, and other information to help all sailors successfully sail their first races under the new program.
