First of all, thank you Tom Petty.   As the fall wind picks up, so is the experience of “flying” our sailboats. Not only was the distance race a screamer, but this weekend’s single-hand Gumbo Cup should be too. Don’t forget to wear your jacket and put your ladder down!

Not only are the adults learning to fly, but so are the kids. As the season begins to wind down, I am looking back and remembering that we taught ~20 kids how to “fly without wings” this year. That’s pretty cool. (“Petty Cool?”)
Before I post our results, I would like to remind you all of the end of the year meeting on Oct 28. Have YOU been thinking of what YOU can do for the club next year? Please bring those ideas to the meeting. Remember, we NEED a Race Chair (Rear Commodore) and Commodore is open. Also a finance person and a web person.

Over and out from my home office,
