Sailing Season

The first Thursday nice sail on May 1 began with a stiff northerly breeze that petered out just as boats were crossing the starting line. Although none were able to complete the first race within the alloted time, six boats were out on the course.

There are a number of folks on the crew list, which we will post on the website later today–skippers are encouraged to use the crew list to fill all positions as needed.  Just give ’em a call!

A list of the KYC boats with pictures and information about each is on this website at under the SAILING tab on the KYC Sailing Fleet page.
