Safety and Education June 2020

The Junior team is currently at North Cape Yacht Club (just over the Michigan border, north of Toledo) to practice with the NCYC junior team. We went out today in 17 knots of air with everyone doing fairly well. Only a couple capsizes. It was a great open water practice!

Tuesday and Thursday this week is more practicing with the North Cape juniors on lasers. Wednesday the ECSC juniors will jump on keel boats for the NCYC Wednesday night beer-can racing. (No beers for them though!)

June 25th – 27th, our team is going to Sandusky for big boat sailing with Tony Hubbard on the infamous Integrity, a 35ft dual-masted wooden sailboat.

July 10th/11th ECSC juniors will be back at NCYC for a hobie/laser race. After that the team will travel to Sandusky again to practice until the 19th. On July 20th, the team will head over to Put-in-Bay State Park to practice on the island. Since Junior bay is cancelled, we will be running our own practice and races up there.

Last week, the ECSC Juniors cleaned up the beach, picked up the cinder blocks around the parking lot, and cleaned up trash around the club. They also cleaned the sailing school & equipment shed, washed down the lower shelter & picnic tables, and washed the main shelter picnic tables & floor. They kids did a bang-up job cleaning our coach boat (racing’s old RIB). It looks brand new, especially with its upgraded 50hp motor.

We also added some dirt to the lower shelter grass area. There was a large 18″ drop that needed fixing. You’ll see a new bed of dirt that needs watering and grass to grow.

MOVIE NIGHT NEXT WEEK: June 24th (Wednesday) we will be having an outdoor movie night at the lower shelter. All members are welcome to join.  BYO-everything (chair, food, drinks). We will be starting at 9pm, but you can arrive early to hang out.
