By Scott Winkler – Commodore – Fleet 42
Dust off your boats! The first Roosevelt event is March 22-23 and coming up fast!
We plan to have fun both on and off the water! Sailing of course– perhaps including a casual “beer can” race around natural marks, or a distance sail, or setting up to try some of Rick White’s sailing drills, or a fox and hounds chase. We’ll match to the conditions.
On shore, besides the always wonderful lounge chair, cold drink, and sailing story (never over-rated! 😉 we’ll have some games (traditional games, but I’m still jonesing to setup a virtual or RC regatta, but probably not this time), a telescope for evening viewing, and I’m arranging for a presentation or two on interesting topics. Our members know some cool stuff!
Scott W will arrive Thursday late morning to claim a spot. Come any time thereafter. Expect most will arrive Friday or Saturday. Saturday night is a fleet potluck, bring a dish! For early-birds arriving Friday we’ll have brauts at 1pm. For super early-birds arriving Thursday we’ll have Teriyaki chicken for dinner. Not expecting too many folks for that but we’d love to see you!
Skipper and crew will get a Fleet 42 ballcap for attending (additionals for $15). If you couldn’t wait and bought one at the year-end party you can get the other color.
Will update with additional details when the date gets closer. Hope to see you there!
