Wednesday Night Highlights

21intrepid captains and their crews challenged the wind and elements for an evening of derring do. Well maybe not so much in the wind category but it did blow from two completely different directions so that makes it a little tricky. Results are posted but of course they don't tell the whole story. Chef Jerry proved that after raising five kids he can flip burgers with the best of them. Junior member Gabe Hill was the highlight of the dessert cart by providing locally produced Lopez Island Creamery ice cream for the entire club. Gabe says they plan to start a tradition so please support these fine sponsors and eat lots of that delicious stuff! MarKay Neumann and Mr. Jewett held down the bar and Ian and Joy covered RC duty. D fleet is open to any boat that shows proof of insurance and wants to come out and see what this wackiness is all about.
In other news: Passepartout departs at 9am this morning to go to Astoria for the Oregon Offshore race with AYC members Andy Schwenk and Jerry Vanderveen aboard. Surfin Bird, Wild Rumpus and the mighty ICON travelled to Sattle last weekend for the Race to the Straits. Long story but Surfin Bird is likely the only boat to complete both days, standby for results.... Windermere registration should be open this week!
