Bitter Ends Valentine's Day Sail Bitter Ends has Valentine's Day Sail today, Feb. 10, 2016.

   After week after week of poor weather and too much wind. We sailed today in very light to no wind conditions. The Sunfish gave up waiting for the wind to pick up and didn't get any races started. Eventually we had some "cold" breezes tacing back to the dock. The IODs/Prams got some races in for the second week of our winter series. Yea! See group Valentine's Sail picture.

Halloween Winners 2015
Left to right
First, Second, and Third Place Winners were Judy Karr, Gloria Casey, and Miriam Staveley
   TuTus were the Halloween Theme this year suggested by Beth Anderson.  Although some had concerns over this year's theme, such as "Who was the Skinny B who thought of this idea".   The old and new salts embraced the theme with creativity and artistic beauty.  Weather didn't cooperate so the sail to Snake Island was cancelled.  However winners were declared and bag lunches enjoyed at Higel Park.  And some paraded through the Venice Arts Center lead by Pam Miller.
