Party

End of Summer Party

When: 
09/26/2015 - 18:00 to 22:00

The days are getting shorter, fall is in the air, and there's termination dust on the mountains. Time for a party! SouthEast Alaska Sailing (SEAS) is celebrating the End of Summer 2015 at Rockwell's back room, Saturday September 26th from 6:00-10:00pm. 

We'll reminisce about the past sailing season and plan winter activities. There will be a running slide show of the summer spent sailing and final standings of the SEAS Cup and Spirit of Admiralty races, along with announcements of upcoming SEAS winter events and information on how you can stay involved with the club.

Wet and Wild

The forecast for Saturday morning’s Admiralty Cove race start was 90% chance of rain and a 10 knot Southeasterly breeze. SEAS racers motored down the Channel to the start line with a steady downpour of rain and not a breath of wind (except the kind a moving boat creates). As the 4-boat fleet of Loa’a Nalu, Haiku, Thalia & Optiminium gathered at Marmion Island for the start, everyone was suited up for the conditions and smiling at a nice breeze. Lyric (WR), serving as Committee Boat, would build anticipation for the start by voicing ‘5-second’ countdowns prior to each timing mark & hitting the horn on a couple others. As boats tacked back & forth below the line, the ripples on the water filled in along the Marmion end of the course and into Stephens Passage.
