Sailing goal-like-thingies

The whole notion of goals seems a bit too Type A for some of the types of sailing I enjoy.

But, there are sails I'd like to take and things I'd like to be part of on the water.

Sailing days ... more than last year, at 22 so far this year I'm about on the same pace as last year.

Race committee ... get people trained, do a more professional job on the Buccaneer Rodeo, get the Sunrise Regatta properly organized and get some out-of-area boats to attend, get RRO certification.

Windshifts ... get better at spotting and using them and shifting gears proactively and properly. Try to get a more instinctive feel for upwind groove and sail trim. Get more fluid on foredeck and spinnaker.

Get some dinghy sailing experience and comfort level.

Learn basic match racing well enough to be comfortable doing match racing and umpiring it.

Youth sailing and safety education ... work toward instructor certification and log some service hours. Coordinate, help with establishing youth sailing teams at NMSC. Host youth groups.

Hammock ... get one or more installed at the Heron Lake Marina. Its supports can be named "non-goal-oriented posts".
