Boat Work

This weekend the WWU team is doing boat work both Saturday and Sunday from 1-4.  It would be good for our team to help them and also do some work on the BYC boats.  Please try to come down at least one of the days.  We will be doing fiberglass repairs, gelcoat work, general boat cleanup, etc.  It will be a good opportunity to learn how to work on boats.

Thanks,

Regatta Updates

Great job by everyone over the weekend.  Highlights: The Sehome girls placed 3rd at Girls Champs and Jack and Wyatt placed 2nd at DJOD beating most of the WWU sailing team!

This coming weekend is singlehanded (laser) champs down at the Gorge.  The team going is Mira, Jack, Natalie S, and Emma.  There were others signed up, so if you aren't on this list and really want to go lets talk tomorrow at practice.  Everyone else gets a weekend off!

The following weekend we host a one day regatta on Oct 6 for the North region.  I will need everyone to help at this one including a few parents to help with race committee, registration, logistics.  We will not need to house teams or provide food at this event.  More details to come.

We will be leaving at 6:45am on Saturday morning from Sehome Haggens to take the 8:50 Edmonds Kingston ferry.

There is a good chance that the regatta is completed in one day and we will return Saturday night.  But if that doesn't happen we will be staying the night down there in housing provided so you will need to bring sleeping bag, pillow, air mattress, etc.  Please also bring extra cash for meals.
