Race/Lesson Opportunity! Columbia Beer Can June 28

Capt. Rick Stage (above at the 2018 Mac race finish party with me, Marianne and Lisa!) has made us an offer we can't refuse. Rick is an experienced Great Lakes Sailor with a dozen Mac Races in the logs and seven of them solo! He is also a great friend that has always supported women in sailing.

We've been invited to crew his J35 Alpha Puppy (how's that for balance the feminine energy haha)...just the women of the joy of sailing and Rick! The best part is Rick is a good guy we can learn A LOT from. You can get on board by signing up for the Wed. June 28 Skills Training. If there are no spots left, get on the waitlist because there are often cancellations.

Date: Wednesday, June 28

Time: On boat at 5:15-5:30; Leave the dock 5:45 pm

Location: Du Sable Harbor F dock; Lynda will provide gate code

Park: Under Lake Shore Drive. Follow signs for Anita Dee parking

What to bring:

PFD Lifejacket

Water bottle

Sailing gloves

A couple of drinks for after the race (snacks welcome too)

Wear your The Joy of Sailing shirt! If you don't have one we'll get you one!

Columbia Party

After the races there's food and drinks at Columbia. We usually stop in to hear a racing tale or two. Remember credit cards only at CoLYC
