The Dinghy Poker Run  
was a GREAT Success !
  Over 24 boats  and 92 Contestants participated !

After touring the harbor and making stops at 5 locations, contestants cruised back to the beach at our beautiful new Venue "Harbor View at Norwalk Cove" for a BBQ and awards presentation.  We had over 110 people at the Barbeque this year !    


A big THANKS to all who participated and helped with this memorable event !

Wind,and How it Affects your Boat 


A few weeks back we discussed how current can affect power boats, as well as sailboats  ( See article HERE ) and now it's time to review WIND and it's affect on various boats.


Every boat is affected by the wind, depending on their projected area and that area's location (high far forward due to a large sweeping bow, big enclosed cockpit aft, large cabin and flybridge amidships, etc).  Thus, every boat reacts differently to wind while maneuvering, while underway and when anchored.
