Out with the old, in with the new...

The official end of the season:
The 2008 AYC racing season closed with the Oktoberfest Regatta and Awards Banquet on Saturday, October 18th. It turned out to be a gorgeous day, and a fun time was had by all on the water and at the club. Pics will be up soon on the website, and we will also post the write up about all of the trophies. Jennifer Bowman graciously accepted our request to paint the Boat of the Year, Thumper, and created an image for the coffee cup trophies, which were fantastic as always. There are still several left to be picked up at the yacht club.

In with the 2009 season:
We are planning some fun Winter Wednesdays (I know it's fall, but some days it already feels like winter), and we are already starting to plan for next year. Wednesday, Nov 5 will be the first planning meeting for the 2009 season, followed by a beer tasting event upstairs. Race planning starts at 6:00 downstairs, and the beer tasting will start at 7:00 upstairs. The Anacortes Brewery is hosting the beer tasting, with our own brewer Kevin and owner Rick. They will have several different flavors, and will educate us about the differences. For a modest price, you can test them, learn something, and bring home your own Rockfish pintglass.
