Update on the Fleet
It has been quite a month! As I write this, we are watching the remnants of Hurricane Florence, now Tropical Storm Florence, dump a bunch of rain on our neighbors to the south. We were quite lucky to avoid the actual track of the storm. Many Club members jumped to action to make sure the boats were well protected.
Thanks to Steve Hanson, John Singleton, Jim Garrett, and Ben English for all of your help getting boats moved and secured. Wagtail was hauled out at Severn Yachting Center and Snagglepuss was moved to the cove behind Steve's house. They will be returning soon!
Wagtail will be at Severn Yachting Center for a few more days having her halyards replaced and standing rigging adjusted. SYC received the halyards last week but, with pre-hurricane preparation plans, had to put that work on standby. Once the halyards are replaced, Wagtail will be available for use by members. Snagglepuss needs some engine work and a bit of electrical work. If anyone is available to help with this maintenance, please let me know.
We intend to keep the boats in the water, at the Club, and available for use into the fall. Please do not hesitate to give me a call send me an e-mail if you are interested in taking the boats out.
Keep an eye out for an email which will be sent to the membership when the keelboats are back in service. Hope to see you out on the water, soon!
