To the Folks on the Crew List

When the Ketchikan Yacht Club resurrected the sailing program this summer, the interest and participation was everything we had hoped for.  Eleven captains signed up at the beginning of the season, and a couple more showed up later in the season.

As for crewing volunteers, folks just kept coming. In the beginning, 10 folks signed up on the crew list.  After the first pre-season sailors meeting, 7 more names were added to the list.  During the season the list grew to over 35 names–nearly every week more folks were added.

Now that the season has ended, its time to extend, on behalf of the KYC sailing fleet, a “thank you” to everyone on the crew list–and bit of an apology to those who did not get onto a race boat.  The truth is, most weeks we just ended up with more crew than would fit on the boats in the fleet.

The good news is that we had so much fun this year, there will certainly be more racing next year–and a new crew list.
