Racers and Would-Like-To-Be Racers=
If you are a member who has been interested in trying out racing, a racing beginner, or an inexperienced racer who would like to learn more about racing or perhaps get more experience with a skilled racer, you may want to consider our next Regatta. This year the ECSC Regatta (Saturday, July 16th) will be a special event. In addition to being our traditional summer regatta occurring with one of our largest social events (the ECSC Beach Party), this year it will also be commemorating the 50th year since the opening of Eagle Creek Park. In light of this, we wanted to do something different and additive to the regatta event. Our hope was to have some sailing activity before the race that would help bring more members into the sailboat-racing community at ECSC.
The plan is to have some racing activity in the morning of July 16th focused on members with sailboats who have never raced before or who are inexperienced and would like to learn new skills to improve their racing performance. Experienced sailors will be available that morning to join you on your boat to act as skipper of your boat in a few short races and then to help you skipper your boat in a few races to move you along the sailing learning curve. After these morning learning events, we then would hope everyone would join in the ECSC Regatta in the afternoon. If you are an experienced skipper, inexperienced or a beginning sailor, we would ask you to contact Nancy Goff or me to sign up for this unique event celebrating sailing and the park birthday.

The Dedicated Race Committee effort is still moving forward with the feedback of the racing members. Many lessons are being learned regarding race management. Appreciate everyone’s support and information sharing required for the program’s success.
Repairs to the RIB boat lift were just completed and allows for its continued safe operation.
The last significant repair project for the racing program is the roof restoration on the Aircraft Carrier pontoon. I received some recent volunteers for this project but would still appreciate anyone with experience with aluminum work to help expedite the work of those of us who lack significant experience.
