Final, final for 2015!

You know you wanna say you were there! Saturday, Sept, 3rd, 2015 (punctuated correctly) will long be remembered as the Commodores Race that was all that (anda baga chips). Even if'n you missed all the other ultra fun regattas this year, this day is for you. Each year the racers get together to celebrate with the man (or woman) that makes everything happen at the club. First there is a sailing activity, usually with a fair bit of hijinks, then the sailors retire to the club for a little soiree that the Commodore's minions have ordered to honor their leader.  It's all in fun and with a forecast for 62 degrees and wind and sunshine who really needs an excuse to cast off the mooring lines? So either join the crowd at the top of the VIP viewing area at the top of Cap Sante or put a pork chop around your neck a solicit a ride aboard one of the racing dreadnoughts. The races to remember are sailed in November so this is your chance to have a little fun on the water before the witch of November comes stealin....
In other news:
Capt. Trevor showed his transom to the fleet in the final Wednesday night race even though he showed some restraint towards the more senior sailors at the start,
Round the County party is shaping up for Nov. 6th with a fleet over 110 yachts competing with AYC fielding: Passepartout, Sunshine Girl, Pangaea, silly rumpus, Hijinks, Bangarangarang, Emosomething, Wild Blue, Limey Bastard, Celebration(featuring the Snoopy kite), Lil toonces, and Bedoo! Why just one shy of a Baker's dozen!!! Just for good measure I will count Valkyrie to make it happen!!
Of course there is a slough full of AYC sailors on other entries so come come join the fun or lend a hand on Nov. 6th, doors open at 1600hrs..... Hats and cellphones ok:)
Rumor has it Eric B has signed up for another year as head honcho for the racing program, buy him a delicious beaker of his favorite or ask not what he can do for you but what you can do for the AYC racing program:)
