Well would’ja lookee here? Seems to be we have some fancy-pants stuff a-comin’ up. We have the Cruiser’s Cup, the finest way to accumulate bragging rights a cruising sailor ever did see. And then we have Governor’s Cup, a pro-am tournament where we are, to quote 417 mag, “Sailing for Supremacy”. What do YOU need to do, you Nautical Wheeler, you?
CRUISER’S CUP the premier cruiser’s race of the season is this Saturday, September 8th. We intend to run a professional event with marks on the water and some genuine organization. And we have an eye on Hurricane Gordon.
So please email Greg M if you are attending. That way we can plan for you, AND communicate with you directly if there are changes.
10am Skippers meeting, Shark Park. 12:00 race start. Begin East side of Edge Island. (So far)
After the race, let’s get together at Shark Park and I (Barry) will bring a cooler of yummy beverage treats.

B-arr-y, your Commodore who is living on his boat this week
(How about last weekend? The weather was awesome!)
(Hurricane Gordon: that is our 10 year old son Eric’s middle name. So now he is Hurricane Eric. Perfect.)
