Hello KYC Members, and SAILORS

We have 10 Sailing vessels registered to be a part of our 2015 Summer Sailing Program.

We have one donor boat, thanks to Captain Al Rockwood. Those wishing to be qualified and a skipper need to make contact with me. If you want to sail….here is a great opportunity. Thank you, Al for your generous support.

Thursday evening is scheduled to be a sunny and great 2nd week of KYC Sailing. One boat started last. Unfortunately ONE BOAT does not make a race.. but it did START THE SEASON.

We are planning to launch 4 sailors at the Madison dock lift on Wednesday afternoon between 4-6 pm. So, sailing as a fleet will begin on Thursday Evening crossing the line in some direction (depends on wind) at exactly 18:00 for the “B” boats and 18:10 for the “A” Boats. ( Please visit the web site: and click sailing.) The instructions for sailing are clearly posted for all to review.

After sailing, meet up for a social at the Club house. BYOB and Pizza or other potluck items.

Another note: The prior set of north buoy “A” was a failure due to the big storm.. the link failed and we lost the buoy. A new set is planned to be in place by Tuesday. The north “A” is set off of East Clump out of the channel in about 30 to 40 feet of water. It will be located about 150 yards north of East Clump as a WHITE MARK “A” . All Marks are taken to PORT..

If anyone has any questions or concerns, contact: Jim Dahl Sail Fleet Captain 247-2182.. or cell 206-491-6238.

See you on the water… sailors and spectators.
