As I write this, it is 23 degrees, the snow is falling and my thoughts are on sailing in the near future. I am jealous of those who have retreated to warmer climates or have indoor shops to do boat projects. In the meantime we like to stop at the club to look things over and listen to the halyards slapping masts, for some reason that just warms my heart. Nancy and I are running out of sailing YouTube videos that we regularly watch and look forward to reconnecting with our dear friends at the club. It is hard to believe that Spring is just around the corner, the ice will melt, the trees and flowers will bloom and the sun will feel warm.
I would like to compliment your ECSC board who has been very busy in the off-season planning an exciting year filled with events and infrastructure improvements. Please thank them for all their efforts when you see them. If you have not done so don’t forget to turn in your dues and paperwork for this year, and check that your boat is still tucked in and not damaged by the winter weather. Stay warm and safe as we close out the winter.
