Harbormaster – Holiday 2018

HELLO ALL! Im very excited for this coming sailing season and can’t wait to get started. I just wanted to say hello and give you some idea of what the Harbormaster Committee plans on doing this year. First, I want to thank Dennis for giving me this opportunity to serve our club as Assistant Harbormaster. I can’t wait!  We plan on doing big things this year for our 50th club anniversary. We plan on replacing a lot of the dock boards as well as any broken cleats. Plans also include cleaning the beach and laying new sand. We will also add emergency ladders to the docks. There will be many more improvements which are still pending future board meetings. I look forward to many beautiful sailing days to come and can’t wait to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our club. Assistant Harbormaster. ki Hickok

Harbormaster – November 2018

November is here and cold weather is upon us.  Some people are battening down the hatches to ride out the winter and other people are looking for that last day of Nirvana on the lake.  I’ve heard from a lot of you about parking this year and I know it’s already a pretty full sailing club. This is something that we will be addressing for next winter. Next year we will have both assigned parking for summer dry sailors and winter storage. Parking, like the docks will be assigned based on seniority. We also have the paperwork from years ago on assigned parking so if you put your boat in the same spot year after year you will not be losing that spot. Last but not least, as always I still have plenty of jobs (both large and small) around the club that need to be done.Remember to contact me if you need or want to get work credit hours.

Harbormaster – October 2018

Fall is here and sailing season is coming to a close. Lets all keep safety in mind when pulling our boats and always try and work with the buddy system.  Winter parking starts October 14 at 3 PM after the Hornback regatta is done.  At this time the beach the seawall and car corrals are open for boat storage. Please remember to park your boat trailer close to the boats next to you.  Any more than 3 feet between boats is a waste of precious lot space. Remember this is the time of the year that  the water level drops quite quickly. If you have not checked on your boat in a few weeks you may want to go check on it as it could be sitting in the mud. Work credits are available for some much needed jobs. Please contact me for information. Dennis Robertson (317)339-7371

Harbormaster – September 2018

With August gone and September here, sailing season is coming to an end so make sure to get out on your boat and enjoy some of the best days of the season while you can. If you are still looking for  work credits, now is the time to get them. We still have several jobs that need to be done. One in particular that I would like to see done before the end the season is  water sealing the dock that was replaced last year. Everything that is needed to get this job done is already at the club.  All that is needed is you and a willingness to work and earn work credits.  Winter storage is coming upon us quick. Please remember there is no trailer parking or boat storage in the car corral or on the beach until after the Hornback Regatta and Chili-cookoff. That means no earlier than  3 o’clock on Sunday, October 14. If you feel the need to get your trailer out of storage early please park in the boat parking lots. Dennis Robertson (317)339-7371

Harbormaster – August 2018

Hello to all at the club. I hope you’re enjoying your summer on the lake. First a heads up to all at the docks. The water level has dropped a little bit in the last month so if you are in a shallow dock you may want to go check your Keel and make sure you’re not on the bottom. Once again I’m asking anyone who is not using their dock for the season I still have a waiting list of new members wanting a dock. Anyone that needs work credits can contact me we still have plenty of odd jobs around the club that need to get done. Dennis Robertson (317)339-7371

Harbormaster – July 2018

I hope everyone is having fun out on their boat this summer. To the people that are waiting on slips – I have filled a few more empty slips so your seniority number has moved up and hopefully we can get you in by the end the season. July 7 we have our annual ECSE regatta and beach party. All boats parked around the kayak shed and gravel lot adjacent to it and the beach should have their boats moved by the July 6. I am also looking for volunteers to clean up the beach before the beach party please contact me if you’re interested. Dennis Robertson (317)-three three nine-7371

Harbormaster – June 2018

Sailing season is in full swing I hope everyone is enjoying their time on the water. I have noticed a lot of unused docks for this late in the season. The club has 14 new members on the slip waiting list so if you think you may not use this season it will rent immediately. If you are considering subleasing after July 1 we start to prorate the slip fee so you wouldn’t get your full season refund. Also, I still have lots of jobs (big and small) that need to be completed.  So help out your club and earn some work-credit hours.  please contact me if you are interested.
