Happy Monday!

We started our last classes of the year! They will be finishing up this coming weekend. Congratulations to the final graduates of 2017!

From now until December 22, we will be running holiday specials. Our 3-class package price will be $1,995 and we will allow anyone who has finished Basic Keelboat to pay the difference and purchase the next two courses. Our Holiday BKB price will be significantly lower as well. We are happy to make gift certificates if you'd like to give classes as a gift - the recipient can schedule from our 2018 calendar at their convenience.

We are taking off for Tonga this Thursday! Brandy and I will be joining this flotilla, so expect the office to be a little short staffed from the 16th through the 28th. Try to take it easy on Angie, Glenda & Don over the Thanksgiving holiday! We'll see if we can dig up some turkey and mashed potatoes in Tonga!

It's Getting Dark Earlier - by Don Gilzean

In my opinion winter has arrived.  It's not really winter until December 21, however, for me it's winter when we move off daylight savings time back to standard time.  That's the point it starts to get frustrating getting back to the dock before the sun sets!....Click for complete article.

Members Note: Don't forget - cockpit cushions should be stored in the head or shower area! Please don't put them on cushions or wood (like in the V-Berth or the main cabin). They go into the boat damp and transfer the moisture to the interior. This time of year it is very hard for us to keep the insides of the boats dry. The same goes for life-jackets and type IV throw-ables - please don't put damp gear on the cushions!

Upcoming Checkouts

Be sure to get checked out on every boat you are eligible for. Scheduled checkouts are free and the more boats you are checked out on, the easier it is to get a boat for last-minute sailing all year! Remember, this email is accurate when I write it, but the live schedule is on our website and is subject to change!
