2017 Firecracker Regatta

For the first time we've separated the mighty Buccaneer Fleet from the rest of the pack.

The linked score sheet here shows separate fleets for Buccaneer, Open and Big Boats.

Saturday racing was sporty, but Sunday brought continuous rain and zero wind.

There are 12 boats available for the kids to adapt (but they need to figure out sail material). Adults need to build their own. Can prebuild before you come to the club. No RC Boats. 

FYI, we are doing the Boat Derby at Oliver's request, so please join in the fun. He felt left out that we only did this when he was little. 😀

One more test post...

This is a sample to show 3 posts selection in setup. This is a test for this is a test this is a test and this is a test.

Seasons Change and so did I, I really don't..... - Test Posting, original on FB Oct 3

So our last regatta is done, boats are put away and the leaves are turning at the ASC. But we do have exciting news: HDR was out this week doing survey and engineering work ahead of the final (and most substantial) chapter of our shoreline... restoration project. This will mean both a solution to our ongoing erosion problem _and_ much better fish & wildlife habit. Thanks to ADF&G, US Fish & Wildlife Sevice and especially to club member Bruce Lee for making this all happen!

Test Posting - orignal on Facebook Nov 9

Happy snow day, fellow sailors! Since we finally have some white stuff on the ground folks probably aren't thinking of sailing right now, but we did want to remind everybody that our annual meeting is TONIGHT, from 5:45 to 8:00 pm at the Snow Goose. We'll be electing new board members, getting a "state of the club" update including some exciting shoreline news and handing out trophies. And of course we'll have a slide show with great pics from this summer. So come and out an join us for a bit of business and a generous dose ASC winter cheer!
