Tennie Komar takes the helm
   Time to Scratch 
         that itch

This past Saturday was another great day sailing, with Tennie Komar, Kathy Champaign, And Deborah Theodore. This was Debora's first trip so we let her take the Bella Donna down the river, and out to the ocean where we practiced tacks, jibes and boat handling skills before heading back up the Merrimack River before it got to cold. It was a great day, a little choppy because of the light easterly breeze, but not more than we could handle. I was hoping to sail up the river however the wind was to light for that. One thing that I like this time of year is that the bridge opens on demand and there is a lot less boats around, making for a very relaxing day.

 On this past Wednesday Larry Jackson and his girl friend Penny Lane came out sailing with a boat load of photography equipment to shoot some scenes for a music video that they are making, so that was a fun day for me, and I hear they got some great video.

 Hopefully we get to see it somewhere a long the line.

 Thanks to Mike Desisto a fellow Southern Cross Association member for sending me the link to race number 19 of Americas Cup. As most  know I have been living on the Sarah Maria for the summer without TV, so it was nice to be able to watch parts of the Utube video on my computer, I do have internet on the Sarah Maria.

 We will be trying to incorporate some of the things that I learned watching Americas cup into my sailing program. From now on when it is time to tack or jibe we will no longer wait for someone to finish their sandwich or use the head, we will make sure all pocketbooks and coolers are stowed down below at all times, and every one will be required to wear a helmet. Only kidding, we will still make sure no one is in the head before we tack.

 This Wednesday the temperature is suppose to reach the eighties and I have a beginner class scheduled from 11am until 5pm with room for two more people. This will be a low key class for those who may want to work on navigation or the use of RADAR or just practice their sailing skills. Give me a call. If you've had an itch to try some sailing now is the time to scratch it.
