Robin Richardson-Stout is the mother of a friend of mine and she and her husband Mike were visiting their daughter in Juneau this summer and had the chance to spend an evening 'sailing' (motoring actually) around Gasteneau Channel on my boat, S/V Lyric. Robin writes articles for Bob Bitchin, former owner and founder of Latitudes and Attitudes magazine. Bob is in the process of starting a new magazine called 'Living Aboard' so I emailed him good wishes on the new endeavor and told him a bit about
To promote the appreciation of sailing and foster a community and culture committed to advancing both sailing and sailing education in the Juneau area.
With fall or 2012 moving swiftly into winter and a New year, SEAS members and friends met for a year end party at Rockwell on Friday night, October 26. A big Thank you to SEAS Treasurer Mary Sternfeldt for making and then verifying the reservation in triplicate! We had a great showing with barely enough seats to go around, with awards presented - another big thank you to SEAS Vice Commodore Wade Rogers for getting the awards engraved and here in Juneau on time for the party! 2012 season awards as follows:
Leg 1 (Saturday) - Starting at 9:30 a.m. between the Committee Boat (or, for late arrivals, the last satellite earth station at the end of the Rock Dump) and the Mayflower Island Day Mark, proceed south down Gastineau Channel, then south across Taku Inlet, into Stephens Passage passing Grand Island to either port or starboard (Skipper’s choice), finishing ½-mile off the entrance to Taku Harbor on an imaginary line bearing 030 magnetic to the Graves Point marker. Boats will dock/anchor overnight in Taku Harbor.
Only 8.5 miles out Gastineau Channel, by sailboat, turn right and you will find a water wonderland of delight that SEAS sailors have come to know as the Back Side. Summer showed up again this past weekend, in all its glory, on the back side of Douglas during the SEAS Cup Admiralty Cove Rally.
