NEWS/Upcoming Events …
The current plan is to put the marks in Bethany park on April 20th. We would begin sailing on April 22. We will jump right into the sailing schedule as published on the racing schedule page. So, get your boats ready as sailing begins in a few weeks!
Spring is right around the corner and it is time to start gearing up for the 2021 sailing season. By the time sailing starts, hopefully just about everyone will be fully vaccinated. The plan is to have a full and regular sailing season with our regular summer series. It is time to get your membership renewals/applications in. Please make sure that all of your information including boat numbers and emails are current. Also note that there is a new “Emergency Contact” block on the form. Please list the phone number of your emergency contact person in case of an emergency at the pond. We will likely get the marks in Bethany in mid-to-late April depending on the weather. See you all soon!

The officers of the club met to discuss how to get the club back to a “new normal” in this messed up time. After a lengthy discussion about covid-19 safety, specifically related to face mask usage, the officers have decided that it is in the best interest for the safety of all club members to require the use of face masks at all club sailing.
Going forward, everyone is required to wear a face mask and continue to do your very best to social distance. Remember that wearing a face mask is every bit as important to protect your sailing friends around you as well as yourself. This is not optional.
