Saturday started with a “How to Fly a Spinnaker” demonstration by Darry followed by Todd demonstrating the new “Roller Furling Spinnaker” that Blue Water Yachts will be offering soon. The Safety Sail started in the afternoon with NautiMoments acting as the Committee Boat. Nine different crew on 5 boats successfully completed the Emergency Anchor, Reefing and Crew Overboard exercises and reported them to the Committee boat using correct VHF communication.
Saturday night was another great Potluck followed by presentations of the Safety Sail Awards and the Presentation of the Pacific Yachting 2021 Cruising Miles award to Harmony for sailing and documenting the most miles cruised in their Logbook during 2021. The Past Commodores and Michael also presented Immediate Past Commodore Rick with an appreciation gift for being Commodore for the last 6 years.
Special thanks to Todd and Cheryl of Blue Water Yachts for providing the Coffee and Treats on the dock both Saturday and Sunday mornings as well as the Door prizes they donated for our Raffle.
