It was a Fabulous Spring Launch!

Perfect weather, perfect teamwork. Light winds, reasonable temps. Done by 3pm.

Thanks to Julie Newell and Laura Dare for some of the photos!


We Have Some Rebuilding to Do

At the March 12th meeting, the Commodore brought the membership up to date on the rebuilding process from the February 28 tornado damage. By focusing on getting the harbor and A, B and C docks ready, we are hoping to keep our April 15th launch date. Repairing the D dock is a larger project, but we have a plan to reassign the boats from D dock to other open slips in the harbor.

Stay tuned for specific information on how you can help.
