The marine railway is again up and running. Many thanks to CAPT Steve
Brett for his leadership in the project and to all the members who
disassembled, stripped, chipped, scrapped, needle-gunned, painted,
greased, and reassembled. Projects like this in which the total labor is
done by the members sets us apart from other yacht clubs in the area and
makes us the grand organization that we are. It was an exciting occasion
to watch CAPT Golden's yacht make the first haulout. It would have been
more festive except for the pouring rain. We now move on to the railway
cover project, currently in design, and hope to have a presentation to the
membership in January.
Upcoming at the General Meeting in January is the signup for the Railway so plan to attend. Over President's Day weekend in February is our annual Heavy Weather Race. Be sure to keep checking the bulletin board in the lounge for the schedule and signup sheets. The Vice Commodore has great plans for a fun filled weekend which you do not want to miss.
Penny and I hope you had a happy and safe holiday season and look forward to the challenges of 2007.
