Flare test

When: 
04/07/2012 - 12:00 to 13:00

 

SEAS Skippers and Crew -

I am going out to the firing range out by Montana Creek on Saturday, 4/7/12, to shoot off a number of expired flares - to get the family accustom to shooting a flare gun. If anyone wants to join in, or bring a few of their own, we would welcome the company. A good opportunity to see this critical and required element of safety equipment is operational. This is an informal event - just putting it out there for the curious.

Labor Day Races Results

 The final series of SEAS Cup races took place over the Labor Day weekend. With Toison D’Or acting as committee boat, leg one found  Lyric WR, Surprise, Haiku, Tango, Optiminium and Loa’a Nalu on the line at Mayflower Island. Under heavy rain and low visibility the fleet clawed its way down the channel, sailing a course which has been being raced for more than 20 years. With a variable head wind for most of the race, it was a long day of wet challenging sailing. Haiku and Surprise kept close quarters for most of the race. About half a mile north of Pt. Aden, Surprise was able to take the lead when a 20 knot breeze forced Haiku to make a sail change and Surprise just rolled in some of her jib and hung on.

End of Season Party

When: 
08/26/2011 - 17:00 to 21:00

Another great sailing season is winding down, so SEAS is sponsoring another great gathering of sailors at Sandy Beach this Friday.

Bring something for the grill and something to share. The Party will get going around 5:00pm with set-up and will end typically around 9 pm.  The clean-up crew gets to finish off the keg.

10 hours of great sailing yet 300 yards short

 The most recent day race was great fun.  The race began with a light air drift up the back side of Douglas to Pt. Hilda.  At the half way point the wind  filled but remained fickle. Lorax a trimaran,  was first to turn followed by Shoeless with Haiku close behind. Loa’a Nalu found a few lucky tacks and was able to catch the leaders on the quick return to Marmion.But as most would predict, getting around Marmion to the finish line proved daunting and Shoreless, Loa’a Nalu and Lorax all scratched late in the evening. “10 hours of great sailing yet 300 yards short”   Haiku, with a masterful display of light air sailing, drifted across the finish line minutes before the 9:00 PM curfew.
