Sails for Sustenance

Nancy Lee is starting a collection of old sails for the fishermen of Haiti. There is a group in Miami that takes care of the shipping and distribution of the sails.

Sails for Sustenance is dedicated to recycling sails donated in the U.S. by providing them to subsistence fishermen of Haiti.

If you’ve got spare sails you’re not using, consider donating them to this worthy cause! Contact Nancy (nlee@mailbag.com) or Donna (donna@lksc.org).

Word from the Commodore

8-8-13

Well, It’s been a tough year for sailing.  High winds, no wind, high water, cold spring….  However, lately it’s been really great.  We still have events planned for the 2nd half of the summer and fall.  A new fun event, the Thurston Howell II Yacht Race is this Saturday and we still plan on taking another crack at a cruising event this fall as well.

We are still doing fun races on Thursday nights and Sunday afternoons, so please come out and join us. We’ve been doing self-starts on Thursday nights, so don’t worry about committee boat duties.  We still need volunteers for Sunday’s however, so if you can do 1 or 2 slots it would really help us out.  If you can’t do it, then just come out and race.  I’d rather see a bunch of sailors enjoying a beautiful sail on Lake Kegonsa than a race with 2 or 3 sailors in it.  We can self-start on Sundays if needed.

Your boats are calling you out.  I hope to see you on the water.
