Sailing Program Update for Aug 7

From Sail Fleet Captain Jim Dahl:

Hello Sailors,

I have been alerted to a weather warning regarding “Thunder Storms” Predicted in Ketchikan Area. The winds are predicted at 10 to 15 and rain showers. The danger of thunder storms is possible lightning. I have been asked to alert Sailors.

I have had one boat skipper who is concerned for safety and will not sail tonight. I personally, do not like to sail and get wet. We will still have a pot luck at the KYC Club House. We also could show a video on sail trim and spinnaker handling.

All skippers are responsible for their own decision as to if they will sail. Any skipper responses are appreciated… maybe we can move up the potluck to an earlier time.

Jim Dahl
Sail Fleet Captain

EDITOR’s note: So far, six skippers have opted out, and the suggested potluck time is 1800 hours (6 p.m.)
