Rio Grande Sailing Club update

RGSC Sailing Club Update

Bits and pieces:
The March 2006 Foghorn now has (mind you, it's very rough) an electronic, on-the-web presence.

The mast-up lot is nearly full with 19 boats paid for (not all installed and this might be counting a few that said they'll go in). Great going Rich and Richard and Bob and all the folks who worked on it! The lot will continue to be improved and the mule should be there soon. If demand keeps up, the mast-up folks might have to open up another lot or expand this one!

The RGSC race committee chose safety during last weekend's heavy winds. At least the RGSC folks had it a lot easier than people responsible for the marinas; sustained heavy overnight winds kept them up all night Saturday. Even with rough weather, we still had a great dinner and club meeting with 26 members dining at the Elephant Butte Inn.


Calendar Items

Don't forget that the next regatta is only a week and a half away. Spring Series 2, March 25-26. Note that the Saturday night dinner will be at the Damsite.

This Friday, March 17 (St. Patrick's):
NMSC meeting at Fuddrucker's in Albuquerque on the I-25 access road south of Jefferson. Arrive 6 to 6:30-ish. All sailors and friends are welcome. Show up and maybe you'll enjoy a little more luck o'the Irish next time you're out on the water!

This weekend: Nothing scheduled at the Butte. (NMSC work party at Heron).

Monday: Sailing Videos with the Adams Cup team members at Buzz and Kari's new place in Bernalillo. If you're interested, bring a yummy snack or dish or something to share.

Following weekend of March 25:
Spring Series 2 Regatta with dinner afterward at the DamSite.

And, of course, we still definitely need volunteers to help with the Adams Cup women's championship regatta effort!

Somewhere close to that time: Northern Fleet Social, east side somewhere.
