Boats in Saturday, May 27th

Ahoy, Sailors!  Boats In is scheduled for next Saturday, May 27th at Milwaukee Yacht Club, 1700 N. Lincoln Ave (turn east across from Collectivo).

We’ll start at 9am until about 1pm.   Even if you can only come for an hour, your helpful hands any time during this time period will be appreciated.  We’ll need at least four people to raise the mast and rig the boat.  Meet by the eastern crane.  The Junior Boathouse is open to us for restrooms,  ice water and relaxation.

However, we first need to get our sailboat Revelation bottom-painted.  MYC’s lot is available to us this week Tuesday (all afternoon and evening), Thursday (all afternoon until 4:30pm), and Friday (all afternoon and evening).  Please let me know asap if and when you are able to help out on one of these days.

Those who help out with boat prep and launching will be first in line for sail lessons.

One Boat in the Water

Greetings Sailors!

Our first boat is in the water and ready for sailing instruction!

Thank you to all the crew who helped at Boats In. Our second boat has been moved from the HGM boatyard to the Milwaukee Yacht Club and is ready for a wash and a new floor.

If you have time and would like to help prep Dana, contact me at 262 490-3245.

Happy Sails!

Boats In:

Boats-In, our first opportunity to have our sail boats in the water, is coming up on Saturday, June 4th, 9am-12pm at Milwaukee Yacht Cub (MYC), 1700 Lincoln Memorial Drive, across from Colectivo Coffee.

Join us for the fun and camaraderie of craning the boats into Lake Michigan, raising the mast, rigging them and taking them out for a sail.  Even if you can only stop by for an hour, it will be an hour well-appreciated by your fellow members.  Wear your work clothes/gloves, sunscreen and sunglasses.  Bring a jacket and hat for cool winds off the lake (60F).  We will be using MYC’s comfortable clubhouse and restrooms.  Meet us at the cranes near the water.  This is a good opportunity to meet fellow sailors, learn about sail lessons and build our sailing club.

Boats-In Preparation is an integral part of this event. There are a number of activities that need to be completed before boats can be put in the water. This is an important way to help out, especially if you cannot make the Boats In event.
