During this years Maritime Festival at Marine Park, I think we experienced every type of weather imaginable in one day: winter in the form of sleet, spring in the form of rain, and summer in the form of brief periods of sunshine! None of these weather extremes could deter a determined group of SEAS sailors from participating by taking people on short sailboat rides. The winds were anywhere from 10-15 knots with maybe one foot seas so it made for some exciting sailing. I brought Lyric over to the dock by the Wings of Alaska float and Eric Keifner, the skipper of Shoreless, also came over
Well, the SEAS BBQ and Swap Meet went off very well with a few new skippers and crew showing up for the event. There were 4 tables full of items for sale or giveaway with a few people taking home new treasures! Aaaarrrrgggghhhh! We'd like to see the swap meet expand in coming years to include sailors, power boaters and commercial fishing vessels participating.
SEAS, SouthEast Alaska Sailors, invite you and your family to our Sandy Beach BBQ and Swap Meet on Saturday, May 11th from 5-7 pm. This has become our traditional season kickoff party and will feature:
The SEAS BBQ and nautical treasures sale was a success. In true southeast Alaska spring fashion we all huddled under the protection of a Sandy Beach Shelter, and had food and drinks around a fire, defying wind and rain. Bargains were had (should have seen the “Free” table!), stories told, and plans made for the upcoming sailing season. About 35 or so attendees came and went, in spite of the weather.
