April 18, 2019 Weekly Update

With two weeks left in our sailing season, it’s pretty clear that it will be a good year so we celebrated this past Wednesday.  With a great turn out of sailors, coaches, parents, supporters and friends of our program, it was one of our best social events ever.  Thanks to organizers Kara and Katie Mathews and all who helped to make if such a good event. Back on the water, the forecast for Saturday is 15-20.  As always the coaches will keep an eye on the weather and keep in touch. Our policy is to try to sail if at all possible but keep safety first. On 4/27 the last practice will be a Squid Lips cruise so remember to bring some money.  Then sail back to EGYC to load the boats for the regatta in Ft. Pierce on Sunday.  If you plan to sail there and haven’t registered, please do so on regattanetworks.com. Over the summer, there will be sailing camps and lessons given at EGYC and MYC respectively.  These are excellent ways for our sailors to get on the water for fun and learning and where their skills will be helpful for teaching others.  Details are still be working out but contact Brett Snyder at EGYC (dock@egyachtclub.com) and Rob Downey (mycsailingeducation@melbourneyachtclub.com). If you know of anyone that is looking to learn to sail, pass this information on to them.  The YC learn to sail programs are our primary source of sailors for SCS so it would be great to see some more sailors next fall. In SO many ways this has been a really good year for SCS.  Every sailor has raised their confidence and ability levels significantly.  Those who choose to compete are growing at an accelerated pace and some are excelling.  It is awesome to see everyone enjoying the sport of sailing.  Since there are no seniors graduation this year, everyone can come back next year. We have an awesome team and I truly hope to see everyone back in the fall.
