Hi Laser Sailors,
We have had 3 to 5 boats on the line for Laser
last few Saturdays and it would be great to have
more. Sean confirms there are two BYC lasers and
rigs at the club, so those of you concerned
about access to a boat, you are now ready to
have been very doable (until today, hmm) given
the warm fall and water. We have a clubhouse
with a fireplace and shower, and Marty is an
incredible resource on RC, putting a lot of time
and effort into helping us, as always.
So come on down! It's really fun and it will
keep you naturally high for the rest of your
Now for a little Ms. Meanie: you are all on the
NBIBCLRA laser list and if you consider yourself
a real sailor you should be down at the club on
a Saturday trying out cold weather sailing. At
least once. Fleet 413 in Newport gets 40 people
on the line each weekend all winter.
Seawanhaka at least a dozen. We should be able
to represent here on the East End with at least
three sailors. First step: ask Marty to put your
name on the laser email list. Then eventually
you can succumb to our peer pressure, yay.
Full disclosure: This is a very selfish request,
given Marty won't go out unless we have three
boats. So please join. Barry and I will thank
you. We won't have to drive 2 hours to find real
sailors. I will bribe you if needed
with peppermint Schnapps and hot chocolate.
For those of you who have showed to date, you
all rock! Thank you!
See you all soon--this Saturday to be
precise. Marty says we're on if sailors show.
Best wishes to all, and Happy Day of Thanks,
What I Am Thankful For:
he supports laser sailors
he shows each weekend to laser race
Bruce Kirby for designing the laser, even if
he wants to rename it The Torch (blurg!)
Sean for providing us resources and a base
from which to launch and socialize
The engineers of polypropylene,
neoprene and Gortex so we can "frostbite"
without "getting frostbite"
All of you for reading this far down the
email and hopefully considering two hours of
Frostbiting next Saturday!
Woohoo, sail on! :)
