Regatta Updates

Sailors,

First, just so everyone knows the Sehome team of Lera, Mallory, Cedric and Casey are heading down to Vancouver Lake this weekend for the Keelboat Qualifier.  Wish them luck!

Next weekends regatta at Orcas has unfortunately been cancelled by the host.  So, instead of going to Orcas we are planning to run a one day team racing scrimmage at Lakewood on Saturday.  Steve will be running that practice, but if any other parents can come and help please let me know.  For next Saturday I have the following team signed up, please let me know if this is wrong: Haley, Ashley, Jacob, Sedona, Alejandro, Dillon, Forrest, Gus, Jack, Max, Tristan, Cedric, Max S, Annika, Giselle, Mira, Cecillia, Fischer, Artemisia, Ian, Zac, Morgan, Tor, Ria

Gear

Great job this weekend to everyone.  Thank you to everyone who helped get boats down, drive kids, chaperone and coach (Mike).

There was a lot of gear moving between cars this weekend.  If you have gear that is not yours please bring it to practice tomorrow so we can get it back to the right person.  Ria needs hers ASAP if you have it.  She is looking for the following.

  • A sleeping bag in a long, thin black stuff sack
  • A sleeping pad, black, in a bag
  • A folding chair, black and shiny blue, in a bag
  • A grocery bag containing a string of green decorative lights and other things
