Did you know as a member of the Nockamixon Sail Club you are entitled to half off your BoatUS membership dues?
Normal membership is usually $24 but you can join for only $12! Heck, the magazine alone is worth that.
BoatUS is a boating advocacy and services organization. Not only do they lobby on our behalf but they provide us valuable services like towing and trailering assistance.
You can find all the details about membership at http://www.boatus.com/
The Full Moon Regatta is held each spring by the Monmouth Boat Club in Red Bank, New Jersey. Two years ago, Fleet 163 fielded 7 boats at the regatta. Last year we sent no boats. This year it was Glenn Wesley with Mike Mandell as crew.
On Sunday June 1 2014 in support of the Rotary International student exchange program, the Nockamixon Sail Club staged an informal "International Regatta". Here are some photos from the event.
Here are few photos taken before the regatta racing on Saturday May 3, 2014.
After a long hard winter it was great to be back on the water!
Although there was only 4 racing the day, the weather was mild and breeze (mostly) good but most important the Nockamixon Sail Club was back racing. It was only 2 weeks ago you could see frozen patches on the lake, so the water was cold and the life jacket flag was up.
RC was Craig Smith and Bryan Snader. There were 3 Flying Scots: Glenn and Dorothy Wesley; Mike Mandell and his buddy Dave; Rick Baucom with Len Evelev and Phil Scheetz. Dan Reasoner sailed his Thistle and even let a Scot win one.
Yesterday I was looking over my Flying Scot jib. I had not removed the 2:1 jib sheet harness at the end of the season. On first glance it looked new but as I was about to place it with my jib sheets one of the blocks moved towards the opposite side of the brummel loop.
Hidden under the frame of one of the blocks the line had frayed through one of the two loop strands.
The 2013 Nockamixon Sail Club Awards Banquet was held on Saturday November 11 at the William Penn Inn.
