Spring Is Almost Here!

Hello PRSA Members, the 2012 Spring sailing season is almost upon us. Our first day sailing is Sunday April 1st, I hope to see you all out on the water. We are planning on having a kick off party after sailing in the picnic area of the marina starting probably around 3-3:30. Please stop by after you put your boat away and join us for some food and drinks, PRSA will be supplying both. If your a new member this is a great opportunity to meet and mingle with all the sailors.

Also upcoming are a number of training events, click on the Calendar link to see the complete listing

1) Rear Commodore and United States Albacore Association Vice President Mike Heinsdorf will be leading a session on “How To Be A PRO”.
2) Albacore Fleet Captain Nathan Marsh will be giving a talk on “Racing Rules of Sailing”.
3) Laser Fleet Captain Erich Hesse will be presenting a “Starting Tactics” discussion.
4) Vice Commodore Nabeel Alsalam and Ben Ackerman will be putting on a 2-part (on and off the water) series on “Power Boat Handling”.

These events are free and open to non-members also, so invite your friends and co-workers.

You might have noticed, we recently revamped our web site, and are working on a new Facebook presence and new crew connection feature on the web site. We formed a committee at the beginning of the year to figure out how to improve our presence on the web and also to expand our social activities. Michelle Greenhalgh and Lee Sayasithsena are co-chairing the committee and have been doing a great job of bring in new ideas. Michelle is going to send out an email next week to give you some more details about the crew connection part of the web site and the new Facebook presence. Lee is helping organize the kick off party, next time you see them give them a big thanks for all the effort that have put forth.

Again, looking forward to seeing you all on the water in a few weeks.
