BECALMED!

The Initial 2010 SEAS race was foiled by an evening calm.

The sailing vessels Tango, Commitment, L'oaa Nalu, Surprise, Lyric, and Haiku gathered near Marmion Island for the horn that would start the 2010 SEAS Cup series.  A new idea was being tried this year, one where the Race Committee chair would call the race at the starting line based on the conditions. 

 

At 1100, the boats were at the line.  It was an hour past high tide, with the current racing out of Taku, Stephen's Passage, and Gastineau Channel.  Taking the current and the variable direction light winds in mind, Wade Rogers, Race Committee chair, made the only sensible decision.  A race around Grand Island, hoping for the more open spaces to offer more wind and a slight current help until the boats reached the breeze.

SEAS Season Kick-off Party

Time: 
Sat, 05/01/2010 - 17:00

Well, it's that time of year again.  Time for the us to kick off a new season of sailing.

If you are looking for a good time, and to hook up with sailors for the 2010 sailing season, don't miss the party on May 1, 2010 at the Sandy Beach Shelter at 1700 (that would be 5:00 pm, you lubbers).

There are a lot of new faces around the club this year, and you really ought to make it down, to check out the new schedule, look at the new, improved, and longer SEAS Cup, a new event this year called the 'Admiralty Island Rally', that features 6 great days of sailing, and some serious hanging out in Warm Springs Bay!  Also new this year, our very first cruise. 

 

2010 SEAS Board Elected

Well, we did it!  We completed the inaugural year of SouthEast Alaska Sailing.  The final duty was to elect a board for 2010, and that has been done.  We elected 6 new board members, and held over our two At Large board members from last year, so our new board looks like this:
 

Now accepting nominations for Board Positions.

Greetings fellow sailors. The time has come to start the nomination process for next years board member positions. Only current members in good standing can submit nominations for other members in good standing.

You can nominate several people per position as is explained on the nomination form.

The Results are in....

Well there you have it folks.... another Juneau sailing season goes down in the history books. One of the better ones in recent memory with all the good sailing days and sunny days... which didn't always necessarily coincide but none the less made for an overall good sailing season. With several new additions to the SEAS fleet, only in it's first year by the way, next year looks to be a good year with some stiff competition amongst the ranks.
