Cruising During the Pandemic

July 7, 2020
 

This spring and summer, Barefoot Sailors have not been able to enjoy our normal First Saturday Cruises or cruiser raft-ups and water socials.  Due to social distancing rules, it has not been possible for members without boats to enjoy sailing with boat owners. 

Going forward, until the social distancing rules are relaxed, and the COVID-19 virus is tamped down, it will not be possible to have organized social or cruising events. 

Boat owners, however, have been able to use their boats on the lake and several have informally rafted up, though everyone staying on their own boat to be “socially distant”. 

I encourage skippers to organize informal raft-ups or group sails with their friends and family.  Those that feel safe with guests may invite club members that do not have boats to sail along.  However, there can be no Club organized social events until the virus is licked and social distancing rules relaxed.

We all hope to be able to have organized social events in the future, but for now, there will be no organized cruise events.

Racing During the Pandemic

July 9, 2020 

Attached is the file “Spring 2020_PHRF.pdf” which contains the results after race 1 and race 2.  This Saturday’s race is going to be a nail bitter.  There are three boats tied for first with six points each: Damphino, Saucy Wench, and Shameless.  It’s still anyone's series to win given the worst scoring race for each boat will be replaced by the average of the two best races.  I think there are at least five boats out of nine that could come home with the gold and silver/bronze of a catch for all the boats.

 

It's a little far out to predict the weather, but right now I am seeing good winds out of the North-West.  By 6:00 PM, the worst of the powerboat chop will be over and the cooler night air hopefully will start to fill in.

 

Skipper meeting at 4:00 PM – Aqualand store parking lot area.  Race starts at 6:00 PM.  Still want to “Social Distance” and avoid the possible crowd at the Skipper meeting.  Send me a text anytime Sunday.  I will respond back around 4:30 PM or earlier with the course and start time.
