Well, this is the month that we would normally be getting the club open, the marks set on the lake, and launching boats in the water for the beginning of another wonderful sailing season. Instead, we are in the midst of an unprecedented time of uncertainty due to Covid-19 and the club is still not officially open. Boats are slowly getting into the water, but instead of the normal camaraderie and gathering at the race shed to shake off the winter blues, we are asking members to restrict their interactions. Sailing can be a socially distant activity, but it is advised that you only sail with those people who are sharing your quarantine space. The board is continuing to monitor the advisories and at this time have postponed our normal spring social and racing events. We are communicating through this newsletter, email and our Facebook page. If you know someone who does not have access to these electronic communication efforts, please reach out to them and share what we are doing.
In the meanwhile, please take care of yourselves and each other. This too shall pass, and as the resilient sailors that I know we are, we will make up for it in no time.
Be well and see you on the water – sometime soon!
Nan (Schulze) Wishart
